#NYFW Georgine Ratelband Spring 2015

It's getting cold  here in New York. I am dreaming of a luxurious resort to spend the frigid months and Georgine Ratelband just returned from one. Her Spring 2015 collection for New York Fashion week was inspired by her trip to Thailand’s posh island of Koh Samui.

Retro jetsetters like Loulou de la Falaise and Bianca Jagger also served as muses for the 1970s global glam. The collection is definitely not for the office. There are a lot of luxe lounge wear with shimmering fabrics that take socialites from beach to the ultra-exclusive nightspot. Think elegant flowing pants and caftans, cropped tops and metallic swimwear.

 Big floppy wide brimmed hats and silk turbans evoked the glamorous movie stars of decades past. My favorite accessory was the surfboard shaped handbags attached with a chic bracelet cuff like a cheeky nod to surfer’s ankle straps. These looks may have been meant for the beach, but don’t look for flip flops on this runway. Every model wore slim, strappy heels.

Georgine is a very young brand. The designer only graduated from Milan’s Istituto Europeo di Design in 2011. Her label was launched when a luxury retailer in Antwerp purchased her thesis collection. The collection quickly gained a following promoting a luxury aesthetic that we would all love to partake…
