GEORGINE F/W 2016

FAIRY TALES

For Georgine’s F/W 2016 line, designer Georgine Ratelband found her inspiration in her childhood memories of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Using rich fabrics, finishings and chic silhouettes, Georgine delved into examining the innocent, sanguine characters of utopian worlds and also the moodier, challenging villains we see throughout the stories.

Some looks were undeniably devoted to specific characters. A fur lined, red hooded coat opened the show signifying Little Red Riding Hood. An array of blue dresses suggested Sleeping Beauty and the unexpected to-be princess, Cinderella. A shortsleeve sweatshirt emblazoned with ‘Grumpy’ across the chest does more than imply one of the most well known Seven Dwarves. We also see Hansel and Gretel expressed through a pink sleeveless dress adorned in wrapped candies and ribbons tied in bows. The deep woods that many of the stories are based in are portrayed through pieces made in brown, burnt umber and forest green colors. Further supporting the idea of nature we see separates made of metallic palm leaves, highly textured butterflies and flowers.

The darker looks towards show’s end were dedications to the evil queens, mothers and step mothers of famous folk lore. Adorned with a drastic cat eye and a very dark lip, models walked down the runway in sequins, leather gloves and black reptilian texture. Body conscious dresses were made of sheer silk, velvet burnout and patterned lace would have made any villain proud. Words Xina Giatas. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.georgine.com
