Dorothee Schumacher founded her namesake womenswear brand in 1989. The German designer is inspired by women, and looks to empower women through her wearable and versatile designs. The brand began as a t-shirt collection, and has since expanded to encompass full ready-to-wear lines for women, including shoes, bags and accessories.
With modern femininity a core aesthetic of the label, Dorothee Schumacher utilises expert drapery and contemporary silhouettes to create timeless yet current designs. Lightweight fabrics form flowing shapes on the body, while mainly muted tones provide a wearable and sophisticated aesthetic. Dorothee Schumacher designs are unconventional yet have a wide appeal for their luxurious and elegant designs.
The brand has a high-fashion edge, creating pieces that will enhance any wardrobe. Tailored trousers, tunic dresses and relaxed jeans are perfect pieces for the everyday, while leather dresses, knee-high boots and floaty gowns make a statement for any occasion. The cool, romantic feeling of Dorothee Schumacher collections means that even day-to-day items are effortlessly opulent, taking daily dressing to new levels.
Dorothee Schumacher has stores across Europe, with many in Germany, and other boutiques in Spain, Poland and Russia. Their collections can also be purchased through the brand’s online store, and through My Theresa and Farfetch.
