Peek & Cloppenburg distributes alpine dress 'dirndl' collection exclusively online via peek-cloppenburg.at
Earlier this month, the Austrian department stores of Peek & Cloppenburg opened the new online store under the address peek-cloppenburg.at. The store contains some exclusively online available labels and ranges such as a collection of traditional alpine 'dirndl' dresses. The dirndl consists of narrow top with wide skirt part, apron, and when the top is sleeveless with blouse. The basic form of the dirndl is since centuries almost the same and functioned originally as stage for expressing with colors, patterns, special fabric manufacturing like permanent pleats, ruffles, tucks, ribbons and other textile and non-textile applications the origin of the wearer. Today, it's used in the most cases simply as fashion-dirndl for festive events like weddings but also for the beer festival 'Oktoberfest' in September and October. The two dirndls (styled with bags) are from the current Peek & Cloppenburg 'Dirndl' collection.
