Heller Light linen waistcoat for women, wearable on both sides in black/grey

Regular price € 386,75 including VAT

Waistcoat for women, wearable on both sides, made of light, linen-like ramie.Unusual creation for spring and summer with many obstinate details.

Ágnes Heller was a Hungarian philosopher who worked on subjects such as freedom and liberalism. In July 2019, according to media reports, the award-winning 90-year-old author swam out to Lake Balaton and never returned.

We have dedicated our unusual women’s waistcoat that is wearable on both sides and was created in our own workshop to this great thinker. It is made of lightweight, linen-like ramie, which is silky-soft and black on one side and organic-rough in gray on the other. Depending on her mood, the wearer can choose which side she prefers: There is no clearly defined “inside” or “outside”.

What else makes this waistcoat stand out?

  • the distinctive, pointy ends in the front
  • a loop to adjust the width on both sides
  • a double row of buttons with subtle horn buttons
  • the detail of three ochre lines on the side
  • the non-pockets whose only purpose is to add accents

In combination with the women’s jacket ‘Voltaire’ in black and grey as well as the ladies’ trousers ‘Leontion’ in black and grey and grey, all made of the same fabric, the waistcoat becomes part of a light summer ensemble

eigensinnig wien: Special avant-garde fashion for men and women.

Under our avant-garde fashion label eigensinnig wien, we manufacture unique fashion pieces for obstinate characters. We design our collections in an experimental process, enriching them with thoughts and ideas from the fields of philosophy, art and literature or drawing inspiration from philosophy, art and literature. That is why our trousers and jackets, blouses and dresses bear the names of philosophers, literary figures and sociologists. We work with materials from nature, which we like to combine in asymmetrical, avant-garde cuts. Our aesthetic is based on the Japanese wabi-sabi concept: “Pare down to the essence, but don’t remove the poetry.”
