Its Not Me Its You, London

Rolling. In my 5 point Oh. This is, like, my third post in as many weeks. Wow! Am I morphing into one of them blogging creatures? Scary! I am sure Kitty and Jems won't let that happen. And it is kind of hard to write when they have me shackled to the drawing-board. I am sure there is some law against that, too.

As usual I am here to give you some news, yes INMIY-centric but news nonetheless. If you want non-news, well, just read the Daily Mail or something, I dunno - speaking of which, how is Kardashian doing, by the way? (I don't call her 'Kim' because that brings to mind North Korean dictators with dodgy haircuts - crap, I am not allowed say that!) Is she still keeping up? Anyways, on the subject of non-news, Kate Moss launched a new range for a high street store. The new range is her 'wardrobe autobiography' (it isn't really as there are no Playboy bunny ears in it!). Having seen it I reckon she was part of one of the fifty Red Indian tribes in a past life as she is all about Navajo patterns and the fringe leather jackets (the fringes were added to keep the flies away, she does know that, right?). After seeing her clothing range we, too, decided we wanted to do a 'wardrobe autobiography', fuck it! We hit a wall straight away. Jems only wears turquoise. How crap would a one-coloured range be? Next is Kitty. She stopped in Hackney, in 2009. She found her look then and, well, each to their own. But I wish that she would put a pair of socks on when wearing those brogues with her skinnies! And no, she doesn't really need glasses. Her eyesight is fine. Which leaves me for the 'wardrobe autobiography'. But I have not changed my clothes in two weeks seeing that I am shackled to this desk. So, it was decided to do some tees with some slogans. That is what INMIY is about, right? So far we are in the early stages. The whole prototyping.


The idea is there, right? Technique will come as it did for our bags (man, if I think back at our first ever bags and how far our process has come!). But, yeah, we are putting together an autobiographical range of clothing, which basically means we will be putting some rather nice slogans on some very nice tees and vests.

That is all. And remember, love your Mum and don't do drugs! Ha!

Be the first to know about new stuff going up here. We promise to only send nice, useful things that we feel you need to know about.


Its Not Me Its You is a brand of leather stuff to carry other stuff, made and printed by hand in East London. Each piece comes with a slogan. Set up in late 2012 we pride ourselves on the quality of the leather, the craftsmanship and the foil-embossed slogans. Your bag is a statement, we believe, and with a 'Its Not Me Its You' bag you will be making that very clear for all to see. You can find us here and in Topshop (London).
