The pieces are sure to give the audience a flash into the older days with styles resembling athletic wear of the past. The collection takes the old and makes it new by grabbing inspiration from athletic wear through the decades of the 1770s-1970s, hence the title “Bode Recreation.” George styles model, Skylar Tartz, in a bonnet similar to those worn by women in the 1850s. The look is reborn when styled with a embroidered sheer top, light peach shorts and black lace up ballet flats. Additionally, Skylar was styled in a brown deep V-neckline dress as a perfect acknowledgment to 1970s fashion. The look is completed with a delicate flower choker, further emphasizing the “Flower Power” mindset of that time period. As you move through the collection, although the overall mood is similar, each outfit offers a different story when examining the history behind it. In particular, George Cortina styles a male model in a black double-breasted blazer marked with silver numbers reading 1, 2, 3, 4, while standing next to a pile of tennis balls. This acknowledges the style men in the early 1900s sported when playing tennis. George takes the formal uniforms and gives it a modern twist. Cortina swiped out the common white polo shirt for an eye-catching collared shirt and finished the look with white formal trousers, which was a common occurrence for men’s tennis uniforms at that time. The range of this shoot not only shows the diversity of American fashion over the years, but also emphasizes George Cortina’s versatility within a single concept.
