Founded in 2009 TNBP has its roots in a music collective formed at this time, hence Tuesday Night Band Practice. TNBP showcased the SS16 collection during London Fashion Week with a static presentation and live band practice.
TNBP SS16 takes inspiration from the 1973 French science fiction animation ‘La Planète Sauvage’ or ‘Fantastic Planet’ by René Laloux, known for its surreal and psychedelic imagery. In light of this, SS16 pays homage to both earthy and otherworldly elements: Textured, natural fabrics including crinkled cotton stripes, lightweight jerseys, rayon slubs, wool cashmere mixed knitwear and hand woven traditional Indonesian Ikat are juxtaposed with modern repeat printed neoprene, technical mesh stripe and crushed metallic nylons.
The signature TNBP colour palette of black is strengthened by patchy, pigment dyed greys reminiscent of the near future world, realised in the iconic stop-motion film.
Contrasting elements continue throughout the collection with TNBP’s signature mixed fabric garments. Torn/distressed denims appear with leather patches and repeat stitch repair, styled with block printed t-shirts, and a neoprene and leather mixed evening dress.
Distressed leathers, butter soft suede and thick traditional motorcycle leathers incorporated with medieval armor are details inspired by works on exhibition at the Royal Armouries, London. Neoprene features and waterproof zippers add to the futuristic feel.
Robin and Mark launched the label with the initial vision of the brand to fuse their passion for music with their love for design. Strong illustration and a heritage in graphic design lead the way for the iconic T-shirt designs the label is renowned for, aesthetically the brand has evolved to offer full womens and mens collections, luxury leather outerwear and accessories, with attention to finishing and hand detailed elements.
