Austrian Romance

THE ROMANCE OF SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAINS, DISNEY LIKE CASTLES, LAKES LIKE POSTCARDS AND A REGAL HISTORY THAT READS LIKE THAT OF A FAIRY TALE.

It appears Salzburg, and all the romance of the Biedermaier era, has been a bit too much for designers to resist. Tapping in to some secret childhood wishes, of the Austrian variety, Karl Lagerfeld took the narrative lead – what’s new? – On Princess life, with his almost couture Métiers d’Art collection. Whether it’s by association or the magic of Atelier synergy, Pre-Fall collections have that certain period tapped.

A spray of field flowers, gowns that appear suspiciously like they were influenced by Lederhosen or outfits perfect for a lovely day of dressage, whether we are willing to admit it or not, designers aren’t the only ones who have been royally whisked away.

Maybe it has something to do with timing, wedding season? Or maybe this is something that revolves naturally, after all fashion is the ultimate respite from reality, which may be the most loved element of couture. Whilst Schloss Leopoldskron is not for sale, we can put on some Mozart, give in to the girly-ness and wear couture that has been wrapped in that very dream.
