The Natalie Ratabesi Resort 2014 collection takes inspiration from seventies summer music festivals. The collection conjures images of open fields with its use of overalls, lace peasant tops and cowboy-esque hats. Some of the silhouettes also resemble long prairie dresses and long cowboy coats. Although the garments take subtle direction from workwear, this resort collection is easy to wear and ideal for relaxing in.

As the secondary source for inspiration, the Ratabesi collection brings in specific elements from garments that were worn in open-air concerts in the seventies, like kaleidoscopic prints and bell bottoms. The modernized palette of muted neutrals keeps the collection from looking too psychedelic. These looks manage to modernize both of these inspirations, keeping garments that could easily be sported at a modern-day music festival.
