Tourne De Transmission

I introduce you to London based brand Tourne de Transmisson who have turned basic street wear, such as jumpers and track pants, into walking pieces of art. The line consists of monochromatic prints of nature that were originally inspired by vintage newspapers and slogans that  together create something unique and represent the relationship between word and image, as stated by the name tourne de transmission that translates into rotating transmission.

A/W 2012 (above) sees basics like t-shirts, shirts and track pants with whimsical images of forest and birds in flight whereas s/s 2013 (below) has introduced tailoring and subtle injects of colour.


I am love love love love love love love looooovvving this brand. The prints are so beautiful and the black and white gives them that real emphasis and shows the detail, just like an old black and white photograph, but still keeping them extremely wearable. My favourites are definitely all the pieces with the cloud prints, especially the track pants, as i personally think clouds are one of the most simplistic beautiful things that exist. I'm also loving the tree print jumper and the knee length shorts. Oh what i would give to be able to put my own touch on these by wearing them with a leather jacket.
