Inspiration Behind Our Holiday Catalog

H

Since our holiday collection is our most dressy, we wanted to balance out the elegance with a healthy dose of fun. After all, the holidays are a time of laughter and parties and glitz—so we styled our holiday Tea models to match.

We imagined a chic holiday party in Berlin with a mix of opulent elegance and punk irreverence. We paired gorgeous gilded dresses with black tights, twirly embroidered skirts with skater-style high tops and festooned cozy sweaters with sparkly skull brooches.

While in Berlin, we were inspired by very the pop-punk scene of the late 70’s and 80’s. The music of Berlin in this era inspired everything from hairstyles to culture and it traveled all around the world. Let your little ones be inspired, play music and put on a show at your holiday party!

Images pulled for inspiration for the Tea Collection Holiday catalog photo shoot.

For hairstyles, we took a look at West Berlin’s punk style and Neue Deutsche Welle (New German Wave) in the 70’s and re-imagined those audacious mohawks in fun bouffant styles with braids and retro finger waves.

It’s lighthearted style that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Time to dress up, turn up the music and dance!
