MUST SEE! Georgine Runway Collection 2017

For Spring/Summer 2017, Georgine Ratelband, designer of GEORGINE, was inspired by the type of girl who shops at Bergdorf Goodman AND Trash & Vaudeville.

“I think it is a more interesting concept of dressing, one where luxury goods coexist with Rock t-shirts, intricate couture beading meets motorcycle jackets and lightweight furs are punctuated by combat boots,” remarked Ratelband.

Keeping that in mind, Ratelband also drew inspiration from the way that young women always pilfer the closets of their mothers, and how they would wear more classic pieces, but with their own twist put on it.

Specifically, Frances Bean Cobain and Zoe Kravitz, who have mothers with the most incredible closets, came to mind for Ratelband when designing this collection.

MUST SEE Christian Siriano | NYFW SS17 Collection

Designer Christian Siriano unveiled his Spring/Summer 2017 Runway Collection at
New York Fashion Week.

From Christian Siriano: “My Spring 2017 collection is perfect for a getaway on the Isle of Capri. Vintage photos from the late 1960’s and 1970’s particularly Settimio Garritano’s photos of Jackie Onassis’ vacations in Capri from 1969 to 1973 inspired a cool, modern seaside collection fit for a world traveled woman. Garritano captured Onassis’ effortless chic and elegant silhouettes. The turquoise waters and citrus orange stripe umbrella lined beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea inspired a bright and bold color palate. In the collection are soft cotton stripes, woven raffia, textured lace, and sheer organza overlays: casual elegance for day and evening.”

ABOUT THE SPRING/SUMMER 2017 COLLECTION Four looks, inspired by the various prints, textiles, and colors incorporated throughout the Spring/Summer 2017 Collection is available immediately after the show, exclusively on Amazon.com , on September 10th , 2016.
