BN Style Special: Tubo’s Spring/Summer Collection is the Chicest Collection All Season Long!



This is easily THE coolest collection all season!

Here’s why:

Tubo by Sandrah Tuboberini uses their debut collection to restructure and reinvent our everyday classics such as peplums (with a mid section see through panelling), gloves (with appliqués), slim flare pants (with exaggerated belle flare), skirt pants (with full on posterio and anterio skirts) and jumpsuits (with side frills).

And Just like global cult favorite Vetements, Tubo knows how to break and reinvent the rules because they’ve mastered them perfectly and very scarcely in Nigeria, a designer comes along with the rare ability to convey the raw energy of iconoclasm while staying true to classic roots — catching whiffs of the old and new and mashing them into one.

Tubo’s style is authentically and originally theirs. I cannot think of a Nigerian brand that has their style and aesthetic. In a field full of many stubborn grasses, Tubo is the rose in the midst.



Here; a perfect disection of the shoulder blade with the use of off-shoulder asymmetry is a perfect example of how classics (in this case off-shoulder and asymmetrical cuts) can be reinvented and made cooler


Even good ‘ol gloves look better than ever with appliqués


This duchese lace see-through blouse with the bust cups is THE most mind-blowing piece that I’ve seen all season long. Elsewhere, this here would be a best selling cult number. Gigi Hadid, Kendall, Rihanna, Kristen Stewart et al, will all wear this, without a second thought!

    I agree. Definitely chic!!! Could see myself in everything here. Yes some clothes could have been finished better, but I don’t even mind. Love it.

    As usual, picture overload with no details of how to buy.

      But what Ada_ugo said is very valid.

      It’s tiring seeing collections with no details of where to shop. Must we turn into social media detectives because we are looking for cloth?

      Richard where is the iconoclasm here? Are you kidding me or did you just copy and paste your review from some fashion website? These pieces are nice but there is not a whiff of iconoclasm here abeg.
