Designed with a leisurely feel in mind, but updated to be modern and chic, Devi Kroell had returned to the fashion scene with DAX GABLER, a new line whose name draws from her grandmother’s maiden name. The Tyrolean heritage was evident throughout the garments, with their indigenous roots, as well as in the practical nature of the bags. Rooted in hunting and gathering traditions, the straps are for gatherers to tie catch in, for example, while the mostly over-the-shoulder styles are not only practical, but should be plenty popular with the “It Girl” set. The ponyhair was shaved thin, the slice leather was almost metal-like, all of which made for a minimal yet rich collection.
The bags were cast in a subdued color palette that were more elegant than “of the moment.” Hopefully, this line will follow in the same path.
