ANFANG GUT, ALLES GUT | EINE KURZE GESCHICHTE

ALL IS WELL THAT BEGINS WELL | A BRIEF HISTORY

About how it all began, the ups, downs and detours that marked our path and where the future will take us. Immerse yourself in an obstinate story.

X JAHRE EIGENSINNIG

X YEARS EIGENSINNIG

On 18 October 2022, eigensinnig celebrated its 10th anniversary. It was a celebration by obstinate people for obstinate people and a special evening full of nostalgia, emotions and memories.

FORME D'EXPRESSION | HERBSTLICHE STRUKTURWELTEN AUS SCHWARZER MATERIE

FORME D'EXPRESSION | AUTUMNAL STRUCTURES MADE OF BLACK MATTER

Koeun Park creates extravagant fashion in experimental processes in the colour of the avant-garde, the existentialist and the intellectual: black. Her designs are made from natural materials and oscillate between delicate playfulness and dominant strictness.

HANNIBAL | EIN STILVOLLES RENDEZVOUS VON TRADITION UND MODERNE

HANNIBAL | A STYLISH RENDEZVOUS OF TRADITION AND MODERNITY

The classic and elegant pieces of the traditional designer's new autumn/winter collection are embedded in minimalism and understatement, and possess a graceful, almost mystical touch. The deep connection to nature is reflected on the one hand in the processing of high-quality, natural materials, on the other in the subdued colour palette.

DER EIGENSINNIGE MANN

THE EIGENSINNIG MAN

Who is the eigensinnig (i.e. obstinate) man? What aspects does he carry within himself and how do they manifest themselves in his fashion style? About the elegant and the unpolished, the unconventional and the excessive, as well as the equanimous and the minimalist man. An attempt to gauge a multifaceted character.

DAS SCHÖNE, DAS SCHRECKLICHE UND DAS NEUE

THE BEAUTIFUL, THE HORRIBLE AND THE NEW

About the beauty of life, the shadow that permanent crises cast on us and how we deal with it. An essay about humility and gratitude, the confidence to dare new things and continuous change in the spirit of the avant-garde.

DIE EIGENSINNIGE FRAU

THE 'EIGENSINNIG' WOMAN

Who is the eigensinnig (i.e. obstinate) woman? How does obstinacy manifest itself in fashion, style and everyday life? About the noble and the mysterious, the androgynous and minimalist, as well as the rebellious and the extravagant woman. We attempt an approach to the many facets of the eigensinnig woman.

DAS JAHR UND DAS GEFÜHLTE JAHR

THE YEAR, AND THE PERCEIVED YEAR

About dancing to the beat of the pandemic, why disappointments are not defeats and productive intoxication for modern sisyphosis.

DER ZWEIFEL

DOUBT

Who would we be if we never doubted? Our thoughts on doubt between not believing
and not knowing. On doubt as a motivator and methodic doubt. And on the
potential usefulness of provisional doubt.

THE NEW SHOWROOM

THE NEW SHOWROOM

The new eigensinnig is more than just fashion. The new showroom is a hybrid between a gallery and a stage. The new collection is a radical tribute to black. 

Der zehnte Charakter, der x-te Charakter - Robert Musil, Mann ohne Eigenschaften, eigensinnig wien

THE TENTH (NTH) CHARACTER

The "Tenth Character" is a term that was coined by the Austrian writer Robert Musil. In our essay, we have given some thought to what this might mean. The text is both about the tenth character and about the other nine. It is about a sense of possibility and a sense of reality, about freedom of choice as a curse and a blessing. About the “LinkedIn Facebook Instagram Tinder” challenge, about being able to say no, and about self-optimization. About the frenetic standstill, about the phrase “I prefer not to”, and about negative space, which also plays a role in the works of musicians such as Devendra Banhart or James Blake.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO THE OBSTINATE CHARACTER

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO THE OBSTINATE CHARACTER

Who is the obstinate (i.e. "eigensinnig") character? How can they be described? How do they live, how do they impact on the world and how do they let themselves be influenced by it?

Schwarz in der Mode: Eine Hommage an die dunkelste Farbe | eigensinnig wien

THE DARKEST COLOR: A TRIBUTE TO BLACK

“Black says, ‘I don’t bother you – don’t bother me’,” avant-garde designer Yohji Yamamoto says. Why is black the color of the avant-garde, of existentialists and intellectuals, and why is it the most popular color in fashion? An essay about the most contradictory of all colors, about the “new black” in fashion, about space and the “dark night of the soul”, about Amy Winehouse, Albert Camus and several big names in avant-garde fashion.
