We — TTSWTRS — are a collaborative project where art entangles with clothes.

The brand was created back in 2013 as a creative project of designer Anna Osmekhina, a former costume designer, fashion editor and stylist.

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, Sita Abellan, Lisa Owen, Tommy Cash, Vera Brezhneva and many others.

TTSWTRS has its own Kyiv-based manufacturing factory and printing workshop, showrooms in Kyiv, Odesa and Kharkiv. The brand is selling in more than 12 stores 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 by his energy that we created a capsule of sweatshirts with the working title «tattoosweaters».

The first collection was instantly sold in the legendary Colette. And the rest, as they say, is history. To this moment TTSWTRS has collaborated with 15 multidisciplinary artists and photographers".

A tattoo in its essence is an embodiment of a deliberate choice to live here and now and feel free. This very energy Anna Osmekhina conveys through the clothes. She sees TTSWTRS essential base — the illusion of body covered in tattoos — as an extension of the clothing and skin. After all, skin as a dividing line between our inner and outer world is also the first way of communication. And that is why TTSWTRS is about accepting your own body and expressing yourself through it.

TTSWTRS can’t stay aside from the ecological situation in the world and has initiated art and social initiatives to address environmental problems. Since 2020 the brand has been using solely sustainable fabrics. In 2021 TTSWTRS released the fashion film “Mission” that was sold on an eco-friendly NFT platform and money was donated to Parley for the Oceans.
In 2021 Anna Osmekhina became a No More Plastic Ambassador.
TTSWTRS team
“We started with the main idea of creating an optical illusion of the naked body covered in tattoos. For this, we only used the tattoos that have found their place on someone’s body. But we came a long way since then adding, experimenting and finding new solutions.Our inspiration is the perception of the body as a canvas and body itself in all its forms and the subculture of tattoos.Our passion is quality, experimenting with content and graphic design. Our goal is to be in line with the era we live in.In TTSWTRS we play our own game and are extremely excited that you decided to join us!”
