Natural autumn hues play a central role: russet, forest green, olive, moccha, walnut, taupe, mahogany, umber, wheat, midnight blue, steel blue, ivory and maroon are used repeatedly. This colour choice underlines the closeness to nature of the wearer plus the traditional character of these outfits. Additionally, delicate ribbons give the looks a very feminine overall image. The detail- awareness of the dirndl dresses, blouses, costume jackets, skirts and sweaters definitely deserves devotion. It is highly inspiring to observe these precious designs. Floral embroideries, stripes and traditional prints certainly stay in mind.
Worth of mentioning is also the fact all creations of this collection are produced by manual work. Thus, quality is seen as a very important factor and you can notice this in its material choice as well. It contains of silk, cotton and linen- which are all natural materials.
This line convinces us due to its feminine, romantic yet traditional character plus its sustainable production. We cannot wait injecting these creations into our Autumn/ Winter 2019/20 wardrobe.
