New Things!!!!!!

We've been working on a few new designs this week.
The first is taken from an old photograph Angie took in Paris.

The second is the illustration - Tales of the Unexpected - Giant Swan versus Mandeer I posted on here earlier in the week. We've also done this on some handmade t-shirts (they've been cut out - we just need to sew them together next week!!)

This one is taken from a Jim Jarmusch quote I found somewhere - it's basically about original ideas and stealing them - so I just printed it straight as it was - it's definately a very interesting idea. Again we've done t's and sweats and a couple of lovely limited edition dark grey soft feel handmade t's (the fabric is almost like wool).

Finally a couple of weird transfer vests, I like to do these strange photo montages that generally involve weird faces so here's 2 new ones.

A few new things online

We've added some new handmade womenswear to the online shop, and we've also been busy printing some new fabric for some new jersey dresses. Our handmade trousers and t-shirts have been going extremely well, so next week we hope to add a few more styles of each - with some chinos, slouch style cord pants and new colours in the handmade t-shirts (we're also busy on new print designs)

New Pants

So I'm (Gordon)  in the shop and I get a text from Angie titled 'Sexy pants' - so I'm guessing it's for me - turns out it's a photo of a new pair of pants she's just made in our studio. Made from handprinted (by us) swallow jersey fabric - they should be in afflecks tomorrow and online soon
Here they are -

Chemicals Collide

Open publication

Hello world, my name is Jakey Price and I've been on work placement at Me&Yu for the past 3 months - which has been brilliant!

Whilst being here, the one and only Angie sent me on a little errand around Manchester town one day to take pictures of whatever caught my attention. From the pictures taken, I created this little booklet with images of what people take for granted, stuff one see's everyday but never really appriciates. Angie taught me all about Photoshop, and then left me and my mind to go wild with writing to go with each picture. And so Chemicals Collide was created. I hope you guys like it, if you wanna see more of my writing feel free to add me

Bad break/Nice break

This weekend was all about 2 very different breaks, on Saturday I (Gordon)  managed to break our overlocker just before we finished a big order!!!!.
The 2nd break was much better - to celebrate our 10 year anniversary (Angie & Gordon, not Me&Yu) we headed off to Trearddur bay in Wales for a weekend doing nothing but eating nice food and looking at the sea.

Dais Boutique

This morning we sent off a lovely big box of stock to Dais Boutique, a new independent shop opening in Huddersfield. The shop opens on the 14th August and we're expecting great things!!!
We will post some photos of the shop once they've sorted the shop fit.
