from the wardrobetales rundholz repository (no. 20 08 24 17)




some rundholz outfits seem so "plain" to me. in the face of such outfits, i start thinking about being a bit more selective about which pieces i should choose in the future. while i like the "plain" pieces, i live for the more "out there" pieces. so why not just pick only those in the future? recently, i "downsized" my fluevog collection, by keeping only those pairs that were uniquely fluevog. it was hard to do -- it took more than a year to accomplish -- but, in the end, it felt right. i feel like it is time to do the same thing with my rundholz collection (but on a going forward basis). sticking to what i truly like when i admire a label is hard for me, particularly when i have limited access to it. i am driven by a need to have as much of the label as i can get my hands on. but at some point, this need does lessen. maybe it is because i have so much of the label already. maybe it is because my relationship with the label matures.  whatever it is, there is a shift in how i approach collecting/maintaining/curating a label. some things to think about as i step into a new season of rundholz.

i am wearing rundholz mainline s/s 2017 (harness and shoes) and rundholz black label s/s 2017 (dress and jacket).

I know exactly what you mean about being selective with an admired label. I have recently reached the same conclusion about rundholz: I need to just choose new pieces that are not like ones I already have. (No more basic black tunics!) For me also, the need to acquire more is heightened by limited access. I wear larger sizes, so there's even a limited number of rundholz pieces that work for me. Also, I'm buying them all online, and I have to be cautious about what will really work in person. It helps me at the moment that I'm not as excited about the current season. I've bought a few pieces (too warm to wear yet), but I don't think it's one of their better seasons. I'm looking forward to seeing what you select.

I do like that jacket. I think a closet reaches capacity sooner or later where you need to edit and things naturally slow down.

loriken: i just made some clothing purchases from the a/w collection. i consciously tried to pick only pieces that really, really (really) excited me. for the first time in a few years of shopping a/w rundholz collections, i walked away with the least amount of black! i am looking forward to an a/w of wearing two of my favourite colours, red and green, although probably never together, since i am a monochromatic dresser at heart .

I really like this year's autumn/winter collection of Rundholz a great deal. I love the khaki green and this year's red which is dark, moody and a bit rusty. Both of these colors are able to function as neutrals (in the way black functions as a neutral). The Pea Green is another matter: but when color is called for, that green is sure a show stopper! Looking forward to seeing how you construct this season's cool-weather wardrobes. Thanks as always for your terrific posts. Jan
