This season’s collection inspired by 70’s Saint Tropez was fun, chic and feminine. With sleek lines and a stylized 70’s cut, the collection breezed easily across the runway.
Revitalizing several iconic 70’s must haves like the turban, kaftan and trench coat, Georgine designer Georgine Ratelband brought her own distinct feel with the fresh colour palette of orange, aqua and gold. Much like she did last season she successfully balanced a retro vibe with contemporary design. It is often tough to find the right balance when referencing a past era for a modern clientele but Ratelband shows herself to be a master of this.
The use of sheer bright wraps against the solid gold pieces worked beautifully, and the wraps were definitely among my favourite pieces. The beautiful two tone trench was also a stand out. This classic basic made into a bold statement piece with the light blue detailing overtop the neutral base.
I have to mention the accessories. Ratelband has shown herself again to be multitalented, with the creation this season of fantastic fur totes and wraps with fun mottos printed onto them. However for me the must-have piece was the surfboard clutch, done in collaboration with Max Steiner Design- they are spectacular right down to their wrist band cuff detail.
