Mühlbauer x eigensinnig wien Hat-making tradition meets avant-garde fashion
Designed by eigensinnig wien, handmade by Mühlbauer Hats: Extraordinary limited edition hats from the traditional manufacturer in the heart of Vienna.
Eigensinnig not only creates avant-garde fashion, but also merges it with philosophy and art in a distinctive way. The vision is to make a person's own essence visible and to emphasise his or her individuality. Well, hardly anyone would dispute that the head is by nature the most visible part of the human body - so why not place 'Eigensinn' right there?
Together with the traditional Viennese manufacturer Mühlbauer Hats, founded in 1903, unique hats and special caps from hair felt, wool and lambskin in black were therefore created on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of eigensinnig wien, which were handmade in the hat maker's atelier.
10 years of avant-garde fashion flirts smilingly with 120 years of the hat maker's craft. Experimental design goes hand in hand with established history. Tradition salutes innovation. A contradiction? Those who know 'eigensinnig' already know the answer.
The extraordinary results of this unique cooperation are called Bowie, Simone, Steed and Rembrandt. Sounding names, with an obstinate character and full of poetry - for instance, the special Fedora hat, the soft balloon cap, the unconventional bowler hat or the artistic and rebellious men's barrel hat. The exceptional hats of this 'eigensinnig' quartet are rare, precious and confidently grace obstinate heads of all genders. They are cosy, faithful partners for autumn and winter and playfully lend their wearer an individual charm.
