Electrified color that excites and animal-inspired patterns that bite are top on this year’s trend list. From dramatic ruffles in hot neons to spotted prints, industry sartorialists have resolved to embrace the bold this time around, and they’re doing so with tactile interest as the base of the aesthetic. European designers are playing with melange knitting, textured snakeskin and leopard wovens, and slick finishes that gleam. Italian brand, Thierry Rabotin has contributed to the trend with their reimagined, coveted Georgette ballet flat. The updated Georgette is a youthful expression of undeniable grace and feminine versatility, the ethos of the footwear designer.
Georgette’s offered in two textile options and four stunning color combinations to take even simple wardrobe pieces to the next level with little effort. The ‘africa’ print is defined by a snakeskin motif in blue or brown and is accentuated by a set of monochromatic elastic straps. The ‘shine’ options are chic and classic in black or white patent leather, interrupted by four multicolored straps. The flat’s simple upper is constructed with the brand’s signature sacchetto technique for a comfortable, lightweight fit. A pancake heel, rounded toe, and cushiony footbed make this style adaptable to varying occasions and perfect for prolonged wear.
Whether you’re looking for an office style or something for weekend play, the Georgette ballet flat is a must-have shoe to add to your collection. We love the on-trend ‘africa’ print in blue paired up with a wide-legged denim jumpsuit layered over a turtleneck sweater for a retro aesthetic. Mix textures when you slip into a corduroy A-line dress with a semi-sheer top underneath. Complete the outfit with a felt beret topper for added sophistication. Choose the black patent leather colorway and go for a playful, work-appropriate look. We recommend opting for a navy blue shift dress belted with a brightly hued belt and a bejeweled bib necklace to mix business with pleasure. Tone it down to go from boardroom to bar when you swap the dress for an oversized knit top and boyfriend jeans. Georgette in ‘white shine’ is stylish with cropped skinny denim frayed at the hems, a semi-sheer off-the-shoulder blouse, and delicate jewelry for tapas with your best friends. Go for a short-sleeved T-shirt and relaxed chino pants for a day of running errands on the weekend. Thierry Rabotin’s Georgette is an eclectic flat that blends practical sensibility with punchy hues and eye-catching graphics, the prime combination to bring your personal style into the now.
