edwardian summer with TBA


TBA garments during these years really had reflected enchanting optimism of new generation that is in fond of sweet fashion. Binbin McNiven always had a crush on Edwardian memories of the past, so like our ancestors she has great appreciation for details. Every time Binbin amuses us with her visions projected into to be adored, she always leaves us breathless. While in the autumn collection there was more playing with edgy vibe of her sophisticated girl, for spring and summer she took us again to the great romance. It’s true that never was a label that connects in this way the romance of lost time with 1960s sparkling time. This romance is never boring; it is adventurous party of love for dressing up. Ensembles that look ideal for summer garden party, irresistibly remind of pages from Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, written by hand and illustrated by British artist and teacher Edith Holden at the beginning of the last century. This summer, TBA delightful frocks came to life again with the help of the silk, organza and lace. As her signature, little Peter Pan collar is still here and made of pearls on orange skater Amelie and white Dawn. Except for the collars, Binbin is extremely popular among her fans with all her scalloped playing (trimmings, hems and necklines) so she created awfully perfect white dress for summer time; sheer in combination with scalloped organza insertions on the front. Like in the last good time of upper class, when Binbin creates a blouse (this time lilac April and cream Bethan blouse) you cannot settle down for cheaper solution from high street. It really bothers you. Not to mention pale pink Simone and olive Odette dresses. Really can’t think of nothing else and your mind is truly bedazzled. And all you want to do is live in the past time, read books on the tea parties and talk with the birds.

I LOVE TBA, it's so cute! it's true, you can't settle for high-street versions of their pieces, they always look sloppy! So I settle for vintage stuff I guess (can't really afford tba haha), at least you feel it was also made with love and care <3

I am so taken by the ladylike details of the collars and the flouncing material. I have become an official TBA fan.
