Burgenland Insight: Austrian designer of sustainable linen fashion Julia Deiger was inspired by Lake Neusiedl for her latest DeLin 'The Lake Collection'

This week, Austrian label Delin's 'The Lake Collection' was launched with a campaign photographed by Schladming, Styria-based Mateja Kordic, who posted an atmospheric video on Instagram showing the special color play of the sunrise on the water and reeds of Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland. In recent years, the steppe lake has been under special scrutiny due to the record-low water level, which many saw as one of the signs of climate change, while others argued that the lake had dried up in the mid-19th century and that fluctuations were greater in the past than today.

The protection of the environment and nature are strong themes in the fashion collections of Julia Deiger for her label 'DeLin', which was founded last year. In 2017, the Esmod graduate with work experiences from brands like Stone Island in Milan started her design studio 'Deiger Studios' for bespoke tailoring and design. For 'The Lake Collection', Julia Deiger has incorporated the characteristic gray of the steppe lake into the range of airy clothing pieces and bags. The highlight of the collection is a shirt called 'Dein Liebstes Hemd' (Your Favorite Shirt) with an oversized cut suitable for both men and women. The sustainable materials are sourced from the linen producer 'Vieböck' in Upper Austria. Two new bag styles were introduced with the new collection. 'The Larger' and 'The Cross-Body Bag' are made from antique linen sourced from local antique dealers. The bags and clothes are manufactured under fair working conditions at 'Handwerk Wien' in Vienna and at 'Gloriette' in Stegersbach, Burgenland. 'The Lake Collection' is available at
