Lake style in Burgenland
On 1 October 2011, I made a trip to the lake 'Neusiedl' in Burgenland, ca. 40 km (30 minutes) from Vienna. Burgenland is the most eastern province of Austria nearby the border of Hungary. The lake is the largest Austrian lake and part of Hungary.
On that day I was sitting quasi in the 'front row' of the lake-catwalk. I will mention on this page three clothing-lines which are probably signature styles of Neusiedl:
- at first the leather clothes of the motorcyclers, from hell-cowboy fantasy alike black outfits with fringes on trousers (seen in men's groups), to futuristic-comic ultra-sportive upholstered suits (not for the ones who ride on 125 ccm bikes; minimum 1000 ccm) worn by couples, who are arriving in masses at the lake
- the comfortable jeans and sneakers combination seen on UK, Arabic, German... tourists and Viennese excursionists - from the more elegant to the very urban, heavy used look, it was the one I liked the most
- and the third style which impressed me, stands for the ones who are dressing up glamorously for the occasion of being seen at the lake catwalk such as a woman in a sunny yellow dress made of semi-transparent veils-skirt and belly-top.
