Thanks to everyone for helping us name and tell the story of this jersey! We were unanimously taken with the words and storytelling of Flora Suen of Berlin! Look forward to a post of the top three finalists!
Words by Flora Suen
Cycle over to your grandmother’s house – or to any turn of the century apartment in Berlin for that matter – and take a gander at the taps. See, right there! The little coloured shapes in the middle of them that dutifully announce the temperature of the water. Red on the left, blue on the right.
The TSH Robinet jersey is a design that turns on both faucets whilst grinning from ear to ear. Have no fear, it won’t flood grandma’s bathroom with a lukewarm mix of water though! The results throw what we know about the second law of thermodynamics out the window. It’s scalding hot, it’s refreshingly cool, it’s your sprint finish in an alley cat and your sunset watts on a former airport runway. Never tepid, it taps into your temperament.
Not content to leave it at just one pun, the Robinet jersey also taps you on the shoulder. Its sleight of shape demands your utmost visual concentration: vermilion circles, ultramarine squares, and the zig zags of snow framing them ever so precisely. The colours nod in greeting to TSH’s Francophilia and its US American base. Rouge, bleu et blanc: le robinet! Shut off the faucets, dry your hands and tell grandmother you’ll be down for tea in just a sec’.
