Song: Say it ain’t so – Weezer Location: Kreuzberg, Berlin
This is probably the last time I’ll be writing to you from Berlin…After 18 months here we’re heading back to Londontown. It’s hard to say goodbye to such a great city but we’re definitely excited for our homecoming – after all there are very few places in the world that understand the importance of teatime outside of England!
We do have one last little exciting project coming up in the Spring in Berlin to mark our time here but, in the meantime, one half of us getting Terrible Movement all set up and ready for our first Summer back in the UK!
Anyway, we’ve been real quiet all February because we’ve been busy making/launching our new SS14 collection – How’d ya like it?
We spent all Winter listening to loads of great records, designing and making this range so we called it ‘Mixtape’ - we were totally inspired by music and songs and another time. We even decided to get real experimental with our screen printing and started messing around with a split fountain printing technique – every split fountain Terrible Movement Tee and Muscle Tee is now truly a one-of-a-kind piece – kinda cool, right? No two are the same and the little imperfections that come along with this technique are totally magical and RADICAL!
We also worked with some genuinely awesome and talented people on bringing Mixtape to life in beautiful, colourful analogue film and VHS video. Alexandra Waespi photographed the range, the totally Kawaii Maria Pizzeria styled it for us and we have Splitpin Projects make a KILLER video on VHS too. We had the real pleasure of working with the incredible hair and make up talent that is Alice Oliver. We also had a lot of help from our friends: Creeper (we love your sounds!), Viviana Gomez, Katie Osteloh, Amy Rylett, Le Bun (who fed us on the shoot and damn, it was AMAZING) and Lauren Taverner-Brown.
You can experience Mixtape in all its glory by downloading our new self developed (yup, we decided to give up sleep and make it ourselves) Look-App on iTunes! If you aren’t all iOS-ed up, we’ll be putting the App live on the site too!
Well, thats just about all we have time for this afternoon – next time we speak I’l be writing to you, with tea on tap from Londontown.
Much love from Berlin!
