Even for those to whom Vienna means nothing, Arthur Arbesser’s fashion-wrought adore letters to a abounding artistic birthright of his home city continue to expel a certain spell. Today, Arbesser’s arch concentration was a work of Koloman Moser, a Wiener Werkstätte cofounder and striking artist who died 100 years ago this year and who was a pivotal writer to his city’s modernist flowering.

Moser’s reincarnation around Arbesser manifested as a ribbon settlement indented with notches and a plain ribbon in dry shades opposite black on long, gently contoured dresses and tank dresses. Moser’s designs for interiors, vases, and seat desirous lead pastel coats and skirts patterned with solid stitching, full poplin dresses with peaceful printed gridding, and pants and coats flashy in some-more stripes overlaid with triangles. The power of a settlement was serve bright by a occasional starburst of contemplative two-tone lead jacquard, many strenuously in a violet and russet pleated-skirt shirtdress. Layered over that was a array of prints and knits of flowers, fruit, and animals that came in punchy colors and a hand-applied patina. As a tone and settlement rather rioted above bullion and red obvious boots, a silhouettes defended a serious nonetheless statuesque Adele Bloch-Bauer look: both severe and nonchalant. Cordula Reyer returned for a second deteriorate to Arbesser’s runway and finely inhabited his creations.
