TTSWTRS is a collaborative project where art entangles with clothes.
The brand was founded in 2013 by Anna Osmiekhina — stylist, fashion editor and costume designer.
Starting from a small team of enthusiasts creating clothes as if for themselves, the brand has since then grown into a world-known phenomenon, worn by Nicki Minaj, Kourtney Kardashian, Winnie Harlow, Lena Perminova, Nina Kravitz, Sita Abellan, Lisa Owen, Tommy Cash, Ksenia Sobchak, and many others, with a manufacturing fabric and printing workshop in Kyiv, clothing spaces in Kyiv, Odessa and Moscow and collections sold all over the world.
“The concept of TTSWTRS appeared by a fateful incident that got me involved in the exciting subculture of tattoos. My friend was in a relationship with a tattoo artist who had his whole body covered with tattoos and acted god-like and almighty. I was so thrilled and inspired with his energy that we created a capsule of sweatshirts with a working title «tattoosweaters». And the rest, as they say, is history. TTSWTRS has outgrown the status of the clothing brand, having turned into a philosophy, mindset and mood expressed in our items”.
The brand as a collaborative project works with emerging and established tattoo artists, transferring their designs onto clothing. The result comes down to an optical illusion of the naked body covered in tattoos. For this we only use the tattoos that have found their place on someone’s body.
Our DNA — abundance of nude beige, bold nature of tattoos, free spirit that make clothes feel like a second skin and strive towards sustainability.
Our main inspiration is body in all its forms, tattoos and the freedom they represent, tattoo-artists, photographers. TTSWTRS pieces are a form of body modification: one can not tell where the clothing ends and the body begins.
For TTSWTRS there are no boundaries, restrictions or prejudices — only pure art, passion and delight in quality.
In TTSWTRS we play our own game with no rules. We are excited that you decided to join us!
