Autumn/Winter Collection 2008:
‘London Town’ calls out to an eclectic mix – from Royals to WAGs, the King’s Road to Brick Lane, urban to punk, and encompassing high street to vintage – every taste is catered for.
This new collection revisits Georgette’s retrospective nature, drawing on inspiration from the 50’s and 70’s bringing them swiftly into the new millennium. Georgette says ‘These were the times when glamour and fashion were everything, and absolutely essential for making you feel good – my collection enables you to experience this’.
‘London Town’ – the ultimate inspirational city where classic and modern are shown equal appreciation, is the perfect backdrop for this collection. It’s exciting, cosmopolitan and each garment captures a part of its essence. With timeless vintage cuts, combined with modern detailing, this collection ranges from puff sleeve hooded jackets to high waisted skirts, and the essential city body amour – the leather mini dress. The accentuated silhouettes are feminine with a hard edge. Menswear is effortless, metro-sexual – smart and casual. The combination of robust and luxurious materials, of embroidered wools, silks, satins and leather with nuisances of taffeta and denim in royale blues, demon black with accents of burnt orange, silver grey and shades of purple perfectly mirror the diverse mix which is ‘London Town’.
