Austria, my home-country. What do I do? Should I do something very traditional? Should I look at Austrian designers? Should I do something purely inspired by the landscape again? Or the history?
I ended up creating something a little traditional, like using traditional fabrics and an ‘alpine’ colour palette, but the clothes themselves are actually quite fresh and modern. Adriana’s outfit consists of a pair of Lederhosen (not the traditional kind, though) and a crop top. The top is very boxy, but slightly gathered underneath the bust. It closes in the back with a snap button and a knot. I think that it evokes this traditional costume feeling, which I wanted to achieve, but at the same time it is a very fresh take at it, without being to literal or kitschy. Also, it is perfect for summer. Only the weather on Spielberg didn’t really play along today.
