On the 17th of January 2013, there I was seated in the front row of the webcast presentation of Dorothee Schumacher’s autumn/winter collection. Unfortunately two minutes into the broadcast the connection hung up and the wish list idea, whereby I could click on my favourite pieces of the show to add them to my own private wish list, sadly also went up in flames.
Fortunately I was able to watch the complete video of the presentation on Dorothee Schumacher’s website one day later, but yet again, I was unable to reserve any of my favourite items on my 2013 Winter season wish list. Having made several attempts to do so, I have now given up, and as a consequence I will, no doubt, be saving considerable amounts of money ;-(
That aside, the autumn/winter 2013 collection from Schumacher strongly supports my interpretation of new fashion rules. This well thought-out collection has a little bit of everything that relates to my personal clothing style. For me, the key piece is the equestrian cape, made out of fur. Wear it over a “two-piece” in the style of the former „Palazzo Pyjamas“, in the 60’s, from Princess Irene Galitzine, and a new strong, but graceful Amazonian is born!
My personal tip for future investments: Buy slim or slightly flared pants and a matching top. The top and the pants must be from the same colour palate. Tight fitting tops should be high necked, preferably without sleeves. Those who prefer a less sporty combination could also wear a tunic on the top.
Which shoes? Well, either simple loafers or elegant men’s shoes. Both work. The variant with the ankle boots, as seen with Dorothee Schumacher, is not too bad either.
