Portland-based Chromatics encompasses a dreamy, acid-infused sound that seemingly marries with fashion in an effortlessly elegant way. As of late you may have heard Ruth Radelet’s smoky voice accompanying models down various catwalks across various shows in various cities. The driving beats, the romanticism, and the retro-futuristic vibe works perfectly on the runway.

As well as being the soundtrack to Phillip Lim’s show in September, Kaiser Karl also asked the band to soundtrack Chanel’s SS’13 presentation. Unsurprisingly, the quartet relished this unique gigging opportunity to bring along their visual collaborator, Alberto Rossini, to document the whole thing for their new video.
The result of this collaboration is the group’s official video for “Looking For Love”. Not just a showcase of the band’s luscious song, the handheld, 8mm-style film is a raw, true-to-life look at what occurs behind the scenes at the Grand Palais during one of fashion’s most highly anticipated shows.

Never have we been more envious about a closet of cool graphic tees than whenever we lay our eyes on Odd Future frontman Tyler The Creator. In various editorials, music videos, or even just being papped at an event, we cannot help but swoon over his quirky array of wild graphic prints and eye-grabbing palettes that he always seems to don.

Tyler’s off-kiler and standout T-shirt style also caught the eye Photographer royalty Terry Richardson when they collaborated on a shoot for The Golf Wang pop -up store earlier this year – nifty.

So besotted with The Creator’s penchant for outlandish cat, dinosaur and leopard printed T-shirts, we’ve decided to dedicate this entire post to the wonderfully eccentric rapper and producer.  To look like the charming Mr Creator check out our collection of men’s graphic tees.

Here’s the man himself, alongside fellow Odd Future member Frank Ocean.


Calling all students: we know how tricky dressing for any occasions can be with a tight budget, especially when your typical day can begin in the library and end in the SU bar drinking Cheeky Vimtos until 3am. So, we’ve designed with you in mind. Lo and behold the classic little black dress. Not just your usual LBD, this garment has an Arteecollage spin on it – we’ve made it bodycon, racerback, and easily wearable as a long tee. We tested the diverse qualities by asking a student blogger to don the tee in her everyday life.

From Lectures to Lights, by Sophie Mayanne

As a student there can be expectations to look good- you need a multi-functional wardrobe that can take you from everyday chic to the lights of a club night- something comfortable, something stylish.  But you need to be wise, so invest in wardrobe staples that can take you to wherever you need to be.

Personally. my favourite item at the moment is the Arteecollage racer back black dress- a must in any aspiring wardrobe. Ethical and urban, and designed with modal fabric, the luxurious silk qualities offer comfort and skim across the figure in a flattering manner.  It’s the ideal piece to take me from long studious lectures, to that all important student night out.
For day to day versatility team this tee with a blazer- or knitted cardigan. I’ve opted for a printed blazer (pictured above) to reflect my artistic personality; A perfect partner in crime with the ArteeCollage LBD. The tee is also combined with ankle boots, my personal choice being a black, muted design, or, if you desire a more glamorous effect team with heels, and you’re ready to take on the world.

So spend wisely, and invest your student loan (or pay cheque) in Arteecollage, for timeless pieces that offer a luxurious silk like feel like no other brand- why not make your money stretch that bit further and  visit Arteecollage on Amazon? A chance to buy clothing and still have money left over for a cocktail? Yes please.
Visit the amazon store here, or alternatively visit the eBay store for more bargains

And if you’re a keen artist – keep an eye out for Artee Collage’s collaborations with artists such as Paul Engeris where you can add unique, eye catching designs to your wardrobe.

It may have only been published two weeks ago, but the video for Disclosure’s ‘Latch’ has rapidly accumulated nearly half a million views. Wowzas. Whether it’s down to the serious amounts of beautiful people kissing, or the seriously seductive vocals of guest singer Sam Smith, they’ve got us hooked. Call us voyeurs, but heck, who doesn’t like looking at beautiful people during 4 minutes and 17 seconds of euphoric electro?

The track begins all blissfully chilled, and then, true to Disclosure form, kicks into a funky beat. ‘Latch’ also marks the first single release on Disclosure’s new label PMR Records (also home to Jessie Ware, Two Inch Punch and Julio Bashmore).
With raw talent, distinctive sonic flare and a sophistication that belies their 19 and 21 years, these two brothers from south London are rapidly becoming synonymous with making inroads within the ever-evolving realms of electronic music. The track also climbed nine places in the UK Top 40, reaching no.17 last night!

The duo recently announced their first London headline show at Plan B on December 6th, which sold out before you could even Tweet the deets. Needless to say that these chaps are hot property in electro at the moment, so it’s no wonder they have now lined up their debut tour, culminating in a show at Heaven in London.

Listen to more Disclosure here, see tour details via Disclosure official and download the track on iTunes here


Creating urban chic, but with an effortlessly elegant approach, is what we take pride in at Arteecollage. Our splendid range of modal tees are quietly unique, with their subtle twists on a faithful wardrobe staple. Nowhere is this more evident than with our asymmetric neckline on the ‘mysterious tee’. Available in a wonderful range of hues such as neutral beige and tomato red, compiling a contemporary look has never been more fun with our collection. Here’s how our lovely blogger Emma Salter wore her ATC tee.

‘Arteecollage: Chic Style’ by Emma Salter

Today I’m wearing this chic Modal fabric red tee from the Arteecollage range, and teaming it with my lovely pink frill hem mini skirt from the Topshop sale, my floral Dr Martins and my urban mirror stud clutch from Miss Selfridge (pictured above)

The great thing about Arteecollage is that all their garments are crafted in pure and flowing modal fabric. This design glides on the skin like silk and creates a classic look with its feminine asymmetrical neckline! My mother always told me never to wear red and pink together as they clash, but the rich red tone in this tee offers a dark and mysterious style making it ideal for adapting to multiple seasons and styles.

Finishing off my chic outfit, I am wearing a quirky contemporary moustache necklace from New Look.

Red Top: Arteecollage, £35Pink Skirt: Topshop, £15Moustache necklace: New Look, £12Mirror stud clutch: Miss Selfridge, £38
This ‘Mysterious Tee’ is your perfect staple for an urban chic outfit and, thanks to the Modal fabric creating a silky classic smart casual look, I will be able to wear it with anything as it is so comfortable and chic! It is rare to find a basic tee that still makes you feel elegant and feminine. Once you feel the luxury quality of this tee, you will never want to shop high-street basics again!

Today’s pick of the week for all you movie buffs is the time-travelling science fiction movie Looper. It was released a couple of weeks ago, but since we finally got around to seeing it at the weekend we wanted to urge you to do the same if you haven’t already done so! It’s 241 with Orange Wednesday today so you have no excuse to view this two-hour montage of escapism if haven’t already done so.

Still not convinced? Perhaps a causal synopsis will coax you. In this futuristic action thriller time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the local mob wants to get rid of someone, they send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gunman like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to clean up. Joe’s high-flying shooting career means he is getting rich and living a wild life. * Spoiler alert  * All is hunky-dory until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (played by Bruce Willis) for assassination.

The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.
P.S whilst you wait to attend your viewing feel free to look back at last week’s men’s style inspiration, featuring the simple but righteous style of Mr. Gordon-Levitt. A week on and we’re still totally digging his casual style and ace array of cool graphic tees!


There are few things we enjoy more than hearing your thoughts on our current collection. As we work away on a new, improved and totally revamped look, knowing what Arteecollage means to our customers helps immensely to our creative process. When crafting new, carefully crafted and quality designs that are accessible to all we need to know what you enjoy most! We’ve got an exclusive insight into our look from blogger Emma Salter so check it out below:

‘Arteecollage: Urban Chic’, by Emma Salter

The unique and vivacious clothing brand Arteecollage captures the essence of ‘urban chic’, but with an effortlessly elegant approach - think american apparel but better value and better quality (their finishes are incredible)!

Arteecollage collections provide a foundation for individuality and embody the true definition of utilitarian wear. Their apparel is functionalversatile and sculpts the physique with the utmost quality, using luxury materials like Modal. Each of their items acts as a loyal staple garment for your everyday wardrobe, whilst also achieving an ultra soft draping effect.

Not just a regular clothing brand, Arteecollage are ethical, liberal and target male as well as female markets! They currently have shops on their website, as well as on my favourite marketplace eBay and Amazon. Arteecollage also offer something different for ‘standout’ moments; their cool graphic printed designs are created by contemporary artists such as Paul Engeris and have a surrealistic appeal.
Today I’m wearing these ultra luxurious urban chic leggings from the Arteecollage range, and teaming them with a lovely stripe cotton crop top from American Apparel (pictured above).

Now that winter’s on its way our student house is getting even chillier and so I can keep cosy in these dark marine leggings which are super comfy due to the stretch-jersey fabric crafted from Modal. The long-length means I’m covered waist to ankle and wonderfully warm! I have teamed my look with this AA top as it’s chic and contemporary, and thanks to the super comfortable Modal quality I can never imagine being without my Arteecollage leggings. Once you feel the luxury quality of these leggings, no longer will a standard pair of average high-street ones suffice.

If you are a student like me, go check out Arteecollages‘ Amazon sale which has gone live today! Many modal dresses, tops and trousers are 50% off! And prices start from just £6.50. GO!

Sometimes you just want to sling on a pair of casual but cool leggings. With jeans can come tightness of the thighs and – god forbid if we’ve overdone it on the digestives – belly bulge. And with high waisted shorts the issue repeats. Tis’ times like these when no longer is anything more comfortable than your loyal leggings. But with Arteecollage you can inject some artistic calibre into a relaxed look with our printed leggings.  

‘ArteeCollage Urban Chic Leggings – Tattoo Cred Without The Pain’, by Sarah Maybank

Who’s your tattoo alter-ego? Angelina Jolie, with her bold religious designs and enigmatic pronouncements in mystical Cambodian script? Kate Moss, whose miniature, retro symbols (swallow, love heart, anchor) sparked a Dalston-goes-nationwide trend? Or Cheryl Cole, whose tattoo parlour should give her a lifetime ban for the sake of her (and their) own credibility – (‘Mrs C’ inked on the back of her neck, a tattoo garter adorning her upper thigh. Yes, really)

Even if you swerve away from the usual suspects like declarations of everlasting love to a commitment-phobe, tattoo selection is still a minefield.

Will yours become a design classic, marking you out as a person of discerning early adopter taste? Or will it be the new tramp stamp or Celtic band – something that’ll drain your shoe and going-out funds dry for the next six months as you get it removed.
Try the sensible option instead: Arteecollage’s Urban Chic leggings. These cool, white garms have a classic design printed on the upper leg, giving you a dash of just-been-inked chic with none of the accompanying pain (or humiliation). They’re made from silky, shape retaining modal fabric — so no baggy knees, and they’ll keep the autumn chills at bay in full fashion forward style.
Wear them with this leather biker jacket by Jofama at Asos (£120) and long, racerback Arteecollage vest, £30, (ticking off the biker and sporty trends simultaneously – clever). Then hop into these shiny Schuh ‘Rupert’ knee boots, (£110) and skip past the laser removal clinic happy in the knowledge your new design lasts just as long as you’ll want it to – and is completely free of charge to remove.

We’re kick starting your week with some swinging cool music (get it?). Lana Del Rey has released the video for her new single “Ride”, which is taken from her upcoming album “Born To Die: The Paradise Edition” (out November 13, 2012). The music video is almost feature length at a mind-escaping 10 minutes-long and follows Miss Rey in a series of events with some biker dudes.

Directed by Anthony Mandler, who worked with Lana on her “National Anthem” video, the film is very much an homage to all things America. We love the gentle but varied tones to the imagery, making it almost a romantic tinge to the film. The song’s a scorcher too, which explains why there’s already been over 4.6 million views in just four days.  If you haven’t already done so, check out the beauty below and let us know your thoughts!

This may already be her gazillionth record but the one thing we’re sure of is that our love for Miss Rey never ceases to fail and we’d probably give our right arm to see this stunning lady in one our our cool, plain asymmetric tees.

Until next week guys!


Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a wonderfully unexpected fashion success. Since his time as the awkward teenage alien in “3rd Rock from the Sun” we’ve been captivated. His style as the love-struck young professional in “500 Days of Summer” also bowled us over with his collection of quirky and cool graphic tees. The roles he continues to play (the suave dream agent in “Inception” and the assassin in “Looper”) means his sartorial palette hosts a variety of looks.

Through his many transformations as an actor and an individual, he’s retained a distinctive but subtle sophistication even when he is in a plain white tee. His cool and casual choices spark intrigue as to what he’ll be wearing next. To look like the charming Mr Gordon Levitt check out our collection of men’s graphic tees and stir some intrigue for yourself.

The beauty of our versatile and basic tees means they can take you from daytime elegance at the office, to evening chic with the help of just a few accessories. See our smart casual tees’ effortless ability to transform a  style for yourself with the aid of Lucia Cabanova’s sartorial eye. 

‘Heading to a gig and not sure what to wear?’, by Lucia Cabanova 

It usually gets pretty hot and sweaty at these sorts of events, so it’s not easy to find comfortable clothes that don’t leave you feeling completely drenched after two hours of dancing and screaming in the crowd. The thing is you still want to look stylish and cool, so unexciting sports clothes certainly aren’t the way to go.
Thankfully, there is a solution! I suggest you go for the basic short-sleeved Glory Tee from Arteecollage, a slim fit that feels very soft against the body due to its Modal fabric. Not only is it very comfortable, but the grey colour with a combination of the asymmetrical neckline adds a certain edge and luxury to this particular staple garment.

I think that the Glory Tee is the ideal base on which you can build up your rockier, edgier and cooler approach. Simply wear it with a black maxi skirt- I suggest sheer for practical and trendy reasons- you don’t want to be completely covered up from head to toe either. It’s important to keep some sexiness within the outfit, even when you’re going for the effortless look.

To emphasise the tougher attitude I like to wear a chain necklace over my Glory Tee, a black studded biker jacket and comfortable boots to easily move around whilst having fun and enjoying great music!
So if you’re heading out to a concert or just feeling stylish but practical at the same time, start shopping for your own Glory Tee on Ebay for £11, or check out the sale on Amazon where you can currently get it for only £10.50!I think it’s definitely worth it if you want to have a quality piece of clothing that you can easily combine with a variety of garments and create your own style whilst feeling great due to the soft, silk-like Modal material.

Turn any corner in Sheffield city and you cannot escape the wildly imaginative street art of British artist Phlegm. Not only available ooop North in his original homeland of Sheffield, his work can be found across the world, with everywhere from New York to Ireland and London hosting his contemporary urban art.

For many reasons Phlegm is making inroads in the world of graffiti and street art, so much so he wants us to read and see everything about his work in a portable form. The elusive artist, whose style is also akin to graphic-styled creations, is currently working on new drawings for a book that will be released soon. For examples of his work that is inspiring nations, scroll below:
Up until recently Phlegm had never expanded his artist talents to New York City. Then he went a crafted three colossal paintings in a playground in Chelsea, and added a lively figure to Know Hope’s mural (below). The three pieces each stand about 9 metres tall, and feature lanky, hunched-over figures operating obscurely intriguing machinery.
Mind-blowingly abstract, yet slightly alluring, we can almost imagine this art comes to life once nighttime arrives. It’s so distinctive and playful and would look ultra enchanting festooned onto one of our tees.
Crazy cool and innovative art
Phlegm street art, Manchester
The surreal tendencies of Phlegm’s distinctive artwork is pertinent in the image taken from Sheffield’s city centre (above). His mantra perfectly blends a dreamlike world of mystery with elements of reality. You cannot help but feel a subtle connection to each creative piece due to the humanistic qualities of each character Phlegm masterfully depicts.

Check out this video of the artist painting in the Irish town of Bantry. Engage throughout the clip and presented before you will be a series of striking murals in his trademark palette of black and white.

It may only be the middle of the week but we’ve already got our weekends planned and are super eager to kick-start a knees up. But there’s only one qualm we need to sort before we go wild – what to wear? We have two days to arrange a killer style and with the help of Arteecollage, and our next day delivery, if you order before the end of today you may even get your gorgeous garb before cocktail’o'clock on Friday. Check out blogger Sarah Maybank’s suggestions below.

‘Something for the weekend’, by Sarah Maybank

There’s nothing like this super-chic butterfly wing top from Arteecollage.com to give your Saturday or Friday evening wardrobe a bit of edge. The brand describes this little beauty as a ‘perfect contemporary choice for casual city chuc,’ and we couldn’t put it better.

With an elegant round neck and one fitted arm, it ticks all our urban/dressed-down boxes, while the swing sleeve adds a dash of Florence Welch style drama. The longer length conceals all sorts of muffin top misery, too – nice.

You can purchase the top from their official website here.

Wear this quirky but cool top with your favourite skinnies and flats for a smart/casual look with a twist. But if you want to update your leg wear then I suggest combining the top with these Club L at Very jeans in Berry – autumn’s hottest shade. Complete the look with these studded Dune flats.

Very jeans 
 Dune shoes
Alternatively, for a bar-hopping, rock chick edge, team your Arteecollage top with these metallic Republic jeans, and black and gold TopShop heels

Republic jeans:
Alternatively, if you’re feeling somewhat ‘worse for wear’ after one too many whiskeys, don your top, pull on these Arteecollage leggings, and bask in the fact that although you feel terrible, you look absolutely amazing.
