What’s In Your Wardrobe? Simone Drichel

We were absolutely stoked that Dr Simone Drichel agreed to let us have a peek inside her enviable and fashion-forward wardrobe. As a senior lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Otago, she’s a very busy lady. Simone was born and brought up in Germany. She first came to New Zealand as an au pair after finishing high school and fell in love with the country. She later returned to complete a PhD in Wellington, a city where you can “walk everywhere”. When she was offered a job in Dunedin, Simone accepted with no hesitation and she has now lived here for 10 years. She finds Dunedin has a great sense of community and it’s easy to get around. One of her favourite places is St Clair beach.

Of course, the fashion is also a big attraction. Simone’s favourite shop is Plume which not only stocks NOM*d but also her other favourite labels Maison Martin Margiela, Comme des Garçons and Rick Owens. In fact, her love of these labels is shared by NOM*d designer Margarita Robertson. Simone became aware of NOM*d while in Wellington when she spotted a student wearing a covetable bell-sleeved jersey and it just grew from there! Her collection of NOM*d pieces is second to none. Her favourite collection is ‘Bedlam’, with ‘Turncoats’ coming a close second.

Jacket by Rick Owens, jersey by Comme des Garçons, scarf by Company of Strangers, shorts by NOM*d, leggings by Zambesi, gloves by Maison Martin Margiela, shoes by Rieker. The Rick Owens jacket is probably Simone's all-time favourite piece.

Thanks very much, Simone, for entering into the spirit of the occasion and posing so willingly for us. It was so much fun!
