Introducing TTSWTRS, the Ukraine-based label to know now
The new label-to-love creating tattoo-inspired “second-skin” apparel.
Founded by stylist and costume designer Anna Osmekhina in 2013, “creative laboratory” TTSWTRS [which stands for TATTOOSWEATERS] combines modern minimalism with dark graphic inkings from international tattoo artists, including cartoon artworks from Korean artist @hugotattooer and sensual drawings by @nesheva_ulyana.
“I began my career as a stylist and in a short time became a popular specialist for Eastern European stars,” Anna Osmekhina tells us. “While working as a stylist, I took a summer course at Central Saint Martins.
“The impulse was a meeting with the talented tattoo artist Ian Levin,” she adds. :He inspired the idea of creating a capsule collection with him in collaboration. I didn’t plan to be a designer. Initially, it was just beautiful and comfortable clothing for friends and clients.” Since then, the brand has enjoyed a sell-out collection in Colette and international stockists in the US, South Korea, Hong Kong, China, UK, Austria, Russia and Ukraine.
