Raiding the Closet: Georgine Channels “Glam Grunge” for SS17

Trash-Talking in High Style

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’s a more interesting concept of dressing,” said the designer. “Luxury goods coexist with rock t-shirts; intricate couture beading meets motorcycle jackets; and lightweight furs are punctuated by combat boots.”

Ratelband also drew inspiration from the way young women pilfer the closets of their mothers. Specifically, Frances Bean Cobain and Zoe Kravitz came to mind, who have mothers with the most incredible closets.

The looks mixed edgy glamour with teenage rebellion-chic, combining Kravitz’ latter-day Superfly style with post-grunge glam, in fun fur coats, spiderweb lace, and metallic motos.

The result? A streetwear collection that’s varied, fun, and imminently wearable. Want to transition from fine dining to raising ruckus?
