GEORGINE

SPRING 2017

Georgine Ratelband, the designer for New York City womenswear label Georgine, gave us the quintessential mix of uptown meets downtown, an updated and glamorous 90s grunge collection. It’s exactly what a young girl gets when she raids her mom’s closet with beautiful designer pieces, but she throws in some combat boots, red smudged lipstick and a messy bob, a la Courtney Love. Season after season, Georgine is in tune with what young, hip, cosmopolitan women want. Her past collections have been refreshing and luxurious, with a distinct New York City edge.  And for Spring/Summer 2017, Georgine held fast to her roots. We saw her classic fur pieces (always a favorite), as well as trench coats, slip dresses, sequins and cut-outs. Georgine sprinkled some punk into the collection, for example,  safety pins forming an anarchy symbol on the back of a silver metallic leather jacket, which was truly stunning. There was a black bra gown with slits from top to bottom which were held together by hundreds of small safety pins, a fabulous nod to Gianni Versace’s S/S 1994 safety pin collection. Our favorite pieces were the long metallic t-shirt dresses and the day-glo, spotted yellow fur coats. Onward, Georgine! Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.georgine.com/
