​First Look: Spring 2020 Style Trends

Posted by Victoria Lett on Jan 30th 2020

Thierry Rabotin puts a directional spin on the ballet flat for an aesthetic to wear now and later.

Flat shoes are having their moment. Timeless and easily adoptable into any style, flats are a wardrobe essential. Thierry Rabotin’s fresh take on the classic shape is emblematic of the designer’s savoir faire with clean lines and sumptuous constructions. Arriving at Hanig’s Footwear ahead of the spring season are two exclusive remakes of the  Georgette 2230 and the Grayson 2239 in an all-new color combination. A contemporary playfulness noted in each silhouette brings them into the modern era and amplifies their individual versatility.

The Grayson 2239 ballet flat has been updated in a muted taupe shade. Handcrafted from a supple leather, the shoe features a color-block design achieved by the contrasting cap toe. Additional detailing on the upper includes a dainty bow at the front and tonal throat trim. A pancake heel and flexible rubber outsole finish off the design. The Georgette is optioned in navy and silver washed leather. The navy version sports bright crisscrossing bands across the front, while the other iteration has a neutral set. The system offers slip-on ease and lightweight security that moves naturally with your foot. A shock-absorbent rubber outsole attenuates impact and distributes it evenly across the bottom of the foot. Coupled with supportive footbed cushioning, Thierry Rabotin’s signature nappa leather lines the interiors of both silhouettes for enhanced durability and instant step-in comfort.

Classic button-down shirts return as a key basic for next season. Keep it fresh by pairing one in a tunic length with the silver wash version of the Georgette 2230 shoe. Distressed, skinny-legged jeans, oversized sunglasses, and a chained shoulder bag complete the look for a weekend of museum hopping. Earthy materials have also made their way onto the runways, representing the fashion industry’s quest for improved sustainability practices. Match up the Grayson 2239 in taupe with a raffia tote bag for a vacation-inspired aesthetic. Paperbag waist pants and a simple T-shirt creates a just-back-from-vacay vibe. Graphic color will be bigger than ever in the springtime, and the Georgette 2230 slip-on in navy is ahead of the curve. Go bold in high-octane hues by choosing a bright flare skirt balanced by a navy blouse to keep your look polished and mature. Whether you adopt one of the season’s trends next season or honor your personal style right now, Thierry Rabotin’s Grayson and Georgette women’s flats are versatile headliners to keep in rotation.
