Fashionable at the Festspiele


Every year, “dress to impress” is the unofficial motto of Austria’s Festspiele. Especially in Salzburg, where the art-loving high society makes an appearance. An appropriate wardrobe is a must for this highlight of the social calendar. Your one-stop shop: the Goldenes Quartier.

Your dress code for premieres: a floor-length evening gown. This white version with black dots by Alexander McQueen fits the bill thanks to its deep neckline. And those who like things a little more eye-catching can opt for the sequined and embroidered dress by Emporio Armani. At matinees and garden parties, of course, you have the option of wearing a cocktail dress – and in that department you certainly are spoilt for choice.

With accessories, too, there is an embarrassment of riches for you to choose from. The Capri earrings by Pomellato are true head-turners and are practically made to match the structured floral clutch by Miu Miu. Stylish headwear for the summer heat is provided by Brunello Cucinelli.

These sandals by Prada will upgrade a simple dress in seconds – why not colour-coordinate them with this bangle by Bottega Veneta? Everything you need – from your premiere programme to your fan – will fit nicely in the gold-spotted handbag by Louis Vuitton. The micro bag by Valentino is small but showstopping. Though it won’t hold much more than a lipstick and a phone.
