HOUSE OF EIGENSINNIG
eigensinnig becomes an independent creative house
So, as always, everything remains different; the desire for change is our driving force. Fortunately, it is paired with a certain inability to be content, because someone who is content wants to stay in the status quo where nothing moves at all.
„Life begins at the end of your comfort zone,“ Neale Donald Walsch said. And so we are taking a step forward, motivated by this creative discontent and productive unrest. We are leaving the familiar path and entering our own terrain. „There’s still time to change the road you’re on,” Led Zeppelin sing in „Stairway to Heaven”.
„WHO, IF NOT WE?
WHEN, IF NOT NOW?"
STARTING 2023: OUR OWN LABEL ONLY, EXCEPT...
„WE OWE PROGRESS
TO THE GRUMBLERS.
PEOPLE WHO ARE CONTENT
DO NOT ASK FOR CHANGE."
HERBERT GEORGE WELLS
EIGENSINNIG CONSISTS OF MANY MINDS
We have eigensinnig partners at home and abroad who support us every day with their knowledge, their experience and their benevolence. And we know when we have to consult others and their expertise – like for our first collection of hats, which we developed in collaboration with Mühlbauer. Cooperations are a constitutive characteristic of your creative house, and there will be many more. We are already working on unique leather pieces; we will tell you more about them very soon.
"YOU ARE, IN FACT, A MASHUP
OF WHAT YOU CHOOSE
TO LET INTO YOUR LIFE."
THE NEW WORKSHOP: AN OLD SPACE FOR EXPERIMENTS
„TREES WITH DEEP ROOTS
ARE THOSE WHICH WILL GROW TALL.“
ENDLESS WORLDS OF IDEAS
Despite its flexibility and expansibility and elasticity, the identity of eigensinnig is solid and firm. It is like a tree with roots reaching deep into the ground, deeply anchored in the earth, extending downwards and to the left and right – as if something was yawning into the earth, as quickly as a crack working its way through a thick ice cover to divide frozen water: your eyes cannot keep up with its speed. And then, in the world above, at the top of the trunk that builds up a new layer every year, creating a new delicate ring – leaves and fruit are sprouting on proliferating branches.
The tree’s wisdom is its knowledge when it has to grow and blossom – and when the time has come for rest, retreat, greenlessness and asceticism. Vita activa – vita contemplativa. Becoming – passing. Being awake – sleeping. What would a rhythm be without the constant up and down?
"PAINT IT BLACK."
BLACK, OF COURSE
The world, in our case: That means ideas and thoughts and melodies and works of art that delight us and move us. That means books, conversations, poems, fragrances, theories, the forest, the sea, the nothing, doubt, the unconscious, pop culture, and so much more. Our avant-garde fashion is inspired by thinkers, philosophers, artists, and – another acknowledgement of our identity – it is primarily in black. Because black is poetry without words, and we never forgo poetry – despite the reduction to the essence which is part of the wabi-sabi philosophy that guides our actions.
Welcome to the House of eigensinnig, where more than just fashion is happening – and will keep happening.
We have been a creative house for almost 10 years. We create designs that make our eigensinnig obstinacy visible. Tailor-made. According to your wishes, to accentuate your character.
