Tuesday Night Band Practice is the bizarre name of a British group that creates original and unique collections
Right from the name TNBP, which stands for Tuesday Night Band Practice, you realize this is no ordinary designer team but something more. The group was formed in 2009 in London through a meeting between Robin Graves, musician and illustrator, and Mark Murder, designer of menswear and rebel guitarist. The two began playing together and while making music began thinking of an original project: to create a fashion collection for young musicians.
This idea resulted in the TNBP line that reflects items typical of rock gear: printed T-shirts and leather jackets of asymmetrical cut made of nappa. The colours chosen for the collections are black, grey and white. In 2010 American-Indonesian designer Rika Nourita joined the group, adding a feminine touch to the project.
The TNBP collections are singular because they interpret the theme of the hard rock artist without ever being predictable. Today the brand is a great success in England, where it is known above all on the underground music scene in London, and other European countries including Italy.
