We must've typed the word "excited" about five hundred times on social media this week! Ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration!.... But we really have been eager to reveal to everyone what the Hero&Cape team has been working on!

Behind the scenes, we've been drawing away in our sketchbooks for months and then rendering them suitable for screenprinting on to the cotton t-shirts. That's the fun and creative part, the best bit about the job! There's a whole bunch of awesome Hero&Cape prints for you this season including our take on the fast food fashion trend!

Things got real when the process of planning our A/W '14 shoot went underway. The pressure was on when we went through the list of things we had to consider such as budget, location, logistics, make-up artist, models, photographer... it's the part we always find overwhelming but we knew what style we wanted (fresh, fun, doesn't take itself too seriously) and with some careful planning, we had to believe that we could do it!

Being a brand that is based in the north, the idea of keeping everything "up north" appealed to us. So, last week, we packed the car up with our kit and set off for a two hour drive to Manchester to meet the rest of the team. Upon first impression, we honestly couldn't be happier with the choices we eventually made. For people who have only just met, we got on like we had always known each other and we think that really comes through in the work we had done together. We worked as a team and as a result, we achieved amazing things! The whole day was really positive and super productive - we got things done with time to spare! It felt more like a group of friends hanging out as opposed to "work"! WHAT A DREAM TEAM!

The best thing about this campaign is that we placed it in to the hands of fashion bloggers. Amazing, right?! And it is by far the best shoot we have done so far because if there's ever a group of people who are passionate about fashion and photography, it's bloggers!

First up, the photographer we chose to collaborate with was one we had known since Hero&Cape launched back in 2011. Jefferson from School Boy Couture photographed our whole lookbook and he had the technical abilities to carry the entire project through. Being a local to Manchester, he was our tour guide for the day too! We've admired his work for years and it was great to finally work with someone we believe in.

We also have Sarah from Temporary:Secretary Blog film and edit a video for the campaign. She also set the styling direction too. Capturing the behind-the-scenes footage, she put a video together which you can watch on YouTube here. It was the first time she had done anything like this, so had been trying to perfect the video for days and days!

Now on to the faces of our campaign! The beautiful people! Our female model, Crystal Lily, is a fashion blogger on Five Foot Four Blog who does modelling on the side. We also had our South London boy, Gareth, who isn't a stranger to shoots either as he has previously been in several music videos with the likes of Jess Glynne, Lily Allen and Union J! Impressive, right?! The interesting thing about both of the models we worked with was that they were both under the model industry height requirements but we honestly couldn't give two hoots about the rules because size or height shouldn't be an issue in fashion (rules are there to be broken, anyway!). But as you can tell, our models were AMAZING and they totally worked it!

Last but not least, Lucy, our hair and make-up artist who helped the models get photo-ready for the day. Lucy's got some skills and the "beauty blogger" in Sarah (@tempsec) wanted to sit and watch her do beauty magic! The best thing was that Lucy was passionate about her work and made sure everything was looking fresh! 

We are really proud of this collection, and enjoyed working with the #HeroAndCapeAW14 team. Everyone took a leap of faith and we think it pulled off.

We hope you'll help us spread the word about our independent business and to share the links and photos with your mates! Please feel free to leave us comments and tweet us with your thoughts on the look book, website relaunch and of course, the new tees!

Follow us on Instagram to see more exclusive photographs!

You can now shop the new range on our website! And don't forget, if you've got a Hero&Cape T-Shirt, upload it Instagram and hashtag #HCTshirtTime to win a new tee!

The PERFECT T-Shirts for Summer!

Tshirts for summer, 90s fashion, fruit print tshirt, hero and cape tshirts

All available from Hero&Cape

Hope you're all having a fabulous Summer so far! We've had a pretty rocky one so far, haven't we? Currently caught in the middle of a thunderstorm so there's no better time to catch up with some things on the old blog! (finger crossed the storm doesn't cause a power cut whilst typing this...)

We have a bunch of new stuff on the website, as you might have noticed! The web design guys are going for a rainbow coloured shop page, just to be a little different from the norm! 

At the moment, we are really in to surface print and an all-over design. We've equipped ourselves with a new screen printing kit which is taking up a large percentage of the studio! But everything is still drawn by hand first before it's all screen printed on our organic tshirts, so there's still that element of illustration. ;-) Our latest designs are inspired by current Summer trends such as tropical prints and 90's fashion. 

Please have a look through our shop and see if there's anything you like for your Summer day trips, festivals and holidays abroad! There's a couple of Fresh Prince inspired prints, a pink flamingo one, a very cheerful smiley face t-shirt and a couple of fruit patterns which are hugely popular this past few weeks! You guys are LOVING the pineapple and watermelon t-shirts which now also come in a cropped tops too!

The Breakfast Club, London

The Breakfast Club, Soho, London

On a Sunday, us northerners love a traditional roast dinner, but it appears that the cool kids in London have swapped the meat and gravy with some fancy pancakes. What's the fuss about The Breakfast Club, we wondered? All this hyped up talk about them has made me hungry and on our recent trip to London, we couldn't help but pop ourselves there and munch on the most talked about pancakes in the Country! 

This is the type of place that the team at Hero&Cape love to hang out. We appreciate it's little quirks and most importantly, we've got a lot of appreciation for the food! The pancakes, eggs and sausage was cooked to perfection and the little shot of syrup added something naughty to our Sunday lunch. Takes on a whole new meaning to the phrase 'breakfast of champions"

Let's Do A Make-Over!

Our web team has been having sleepless nights fun this past fortnight when they undertook the task of giving our website a bit of a make-over. It is something we've been working on for a while now and we're so pleased to finally say that the new site is now LIVE! Woop woop!

You'll find a more stripped down homepage, we've de-cluttered it. Another decision we took was to lose the hand-drawn logo font, which feels quite strange at the moment because handwritten typeface is our thing, something we've been quite passionate about in the past. But... it was time to grow up and give Hero&Cape a slicker, tidier look (but don't worry, we're still going to be injecting lots of fun with our hand-drawn T-shirt designs!). We're really pleased with it, and hope you are too! Visit the site at www.heroandcape.com and let us know what you think. Feedback (good or bad) is always welcome! We value your feedback and we want your honest opinions!

Keep your eyes peels for more updates! We like to keep things fresh!

Hero&Cape At Patty&Bun

Patty&Bun London
patty & bun london review, best burger in london

"No nonsense, fresh, honest, damn tasty burgers with a couple of surprises along the way"

Patty&Bun, James Street, W1U

When in London, do what the Londoners do! For some time now, we have been hearing about Patty&Bun. If it's one thing we like, it is a fellow indie business making good use of the ampersand (and if we're being geeky about it, we share the same amount of syllables. He-ro-and-cape / pat-ty-and-bun.... we were destined to meet!)

On Friday, we met up with one our talented designers, Lee Pitman (have you seen The Golden Fleece T-Shirt he created for us? The intricate illustration was completely drawn by hand). Patty&Bun is one of the best places to eat in London, and have becoming a popular little place if the queues are anything to go by. We were in the queue for an hour but it was 100% worth it. Patty&Bun provided a good atmosphere to chill after a busy week at the studio and the food itself was delicious, I highly recommend the chicken wings! The burger, I admit, isn't the most photogenic little thing but in real life, it was a beauty - I could eat it 'til the end of time! Good portion, full of flavour, and perfectly made.

Keep an eye out new blog posts this week as we give you an insight in to what we got up to whilst we were on a photo shoot trip in London. Can't wait to reveal our new collection, and if you're a fan of the 90's (let's face it, who isn't!) then be sure to stay tuned.
