The Softest Raw A Poetic Carapace for the Obstinate Character

Walking between the worlds - The obstinate pieces we create connect the body to the world, the internal to the external, dreams to reality, the past to the future. They are the Between between the worlds, they are movable, adaptable, supple bridges between their wearers and the times and spaces they inhabit.

The Here and Now: war, inflation, pandemic and climate crisis challenge us on multiple levels. Outrage is the reaction of so many, who, at the same time, feel they need to gear up, to don an armor as a sign of their outrage, who feel they need a carapace to protect them from everything that is raining down on them. 

The specially coated black Belgian linen in our new collection, manifesting itself in our linen suit, linen trousers, linen jacket, linen coat and harem pants, is our attempt at an answer: It is a soft armor, a poetic carapace. It enfolds without hiding, it provides security without restricting, it becomes one with the person who wears it. It forms an obstinate system which organically reconciles the outside and the inside and has its very own dark-fashion aesthetic.

Versatile, casual unisex trousers in specially coated linen with a slightly lower crotch and pleats. A poetic rarity for freedom-loving obstinate people. The Sorrows of Young Werther, Erlkönig, Faust: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is quite rightly considered the greatest German poet and thinker. His works are world literature and are still intensively received, discussed and appreciated today. But Goethe was also a natural scientist, which makes him nothing less than a universal genius, who - and this was anything but a matter of course - already enjoyed fame and honor during his lifetime. The unisex trousers named after him from the company's own atelier are a tribute to the extraordinary poet - and with good reason, because the obstinate creation made of 100% specially coated and therefore particularly durable, resistant and grippy, structured linen, carries poetry in itself. The slightly deeper crotch offers space when walking, the pleats give the leg a pleasant width. If you don't want to wear this unique creation casually and hipster-style, reach for a belt for more support; if you want to show off more leg, roll up the pant legs without the fabric becoming another or seams showing.Two spacious side pockets on the front provide space for the smartphone or things of similar size that the obstinate likes to carry.  As always, small details provide further poetry:The waistband can be closed via a button, which is positioned slightly off to the side and thus subtly irritating.The concealed button closure runs at a slight angle.The side seam on the pant leg leads into an asymmetrical slit at the hem.The back reveals an unexpected play of seams running from top to bottom.The three ochre stripes typical for eigensinnig wien.With the avant-garde jacket 'Camus' or the oversize coat 'Laozi', which are made of the same material, Goethe becomes a special ensemble for women. In combination with the zip jacket 'Husserl' or the 'short coat 'Fromm', which are also made of the special linen fabric, again results in an unconventional creation for men.

Elegant, minimalist men's short coat made of special linen fabric, which surprises with subtle-extraordinary details - and proves versatility in combination with other obstinacy. "To Have or To Be" is one of the most important works by the German-American psychoanalyst, philosopher and social psychologist Erich Fromm, who is regarded as an influential representative of humanism and devoted his entire life to existential questions.The black men's short coat named after him, knitted in the company's own atelier, is similarly existential: In its minimalism, it poses the question of what is essential. Made of 100% coated linen, the slim-fitting obstinacy with two side pockets and an inner breast pocket has no lapels and gets by with a single button on the front.A touch of subtle extravagance is provided by the unusual details, which are expressed mainly in the cut: At the back, a diagonal seam runs across the shoulders and then extends into a sleeve on one side and across the front of the chest on the other: a metaphor for life's journey, which can run in several directions.The sleeves close asymmetricallyThe hems are slightly frayed and can be read as a stand-in for the chaos that existence brings. Combined with avant-garde 'Meinong' trousers and 'Ricoeur' T-shirt, 'Fromm' becomes an unconventional interpretation of the classic suit; worn with 'Freud' shirt, its elegant side is revealed. If you like it more special, combine the short coat with the extraordinary trousers 'Goethe'.  Brand: eigensinnig wienColor: blackMaterial: 100% linenFit: slim-fitting, minimalistic-elegant eigensinnig wien: special avant-garde fashion for men and women.

Asymmetrical avant-garde women's jacket with smooth horn buttons and quirky details. Extravagant creation for individualists who like to subtly stand out.   The French writer and philosopher Albert Camus worked on the absurdity of existence throughout his life. In his opinion: "the absurd can jump out at anyone on any street corner". Nevertheless, the life he himself had lived dissolutely and intensely would be worth living: it was precisely in the knowledge of absurdity that man could live self-determinedly, rebel and revolt. What did he have to lose? A similarly rebellious attitude is also displayed by the consistently asymmetrical women's jacket from the in-house atelier: everything here is odd in the best possible way. Asymmetry runs like the main theme through the entire creation - from the stand-up collar to the button placket with its smooth horn buttons to the sleeve cuffs and the seams on the back, both of which end in walking slits of varying lengths. Unconventional is also the material of the individualistic creation with two pockets on the front:  Like all eigensinnig wien unique pieces, this women's jacket plays with unexpected details:the open, outstanding lining made of 100% firm but soft cotton, which gives the impression that there is a black top under the jacket.the small, poetic wave on the stand-up collar, which can be worn high-necked or casually folded over.the vase-shaped eye buttonholes, so named because the buttonholes have an eye-shaped curve at the end that makes them more durable and stretchy.the wardrobe hanger, with which you can hang up and then take down the obstinate unique piece wherever you want.the three ochre stripes typical for wayward on the right pocket and on the right sleeve In combination with the trousers 'Châtelet' or 'Goethe' in the same material and the shirt 'Ingarden' in black you get an unconventional ensemble for special occasions.

Long women's coat made of 100% black coated linen. An exceptional creation that combines elegance and roughness with playful rigor in an obstinate way. "As it is very conducive to health, I have decided to be happy," is one of these phrases from the 18th-century French author, poet and philosopher with the artist name Voltaire. The eponymous women's coat from the in-house atelier is a tribute to the poet: it is for all those who are looking for creations in which elegance and roughness and playful rigor appear on an equal footing.On the one hand, the fabric is responsible for the success of this symbiosis: 100% black linen. This is a coated fabric that has something organic about it due to its irregular coloring. The women's coat is full of obstinate details:the refined collar, which can be worn both as a lapel and turned upthe special sleeves with asymmetrical ends and the three ochre linesthe seams that are deliberately left open at the bottomthe discreet, natural-looking coconut buttonsthe two large pockets for smartphone, wallet & co and the detail of the three lines 'Voltaire' goes perfectly with the women's trousers 'Châtelet' and 'Goethe' as well, which are both made of the same fabric and create a special women's suit in combination with the blazer.

Avant-garde oversize coat in light coated linen that can be worn by all genders. Obstinate companion for any season. "For being and non-being generate each other. Heavy and light complete each other. Long and short shape each other. Voice and sound marry each other. The fact that life is a sequence of transitions and unites contradictions has hardly been said in a clearer language than the Chinese philosopher and founder of Taoism Laozi (or Lao Tzu). Contradictions are also combined in the oversize coat from our own atelier, which we have dedicated to the wise master. So the light and coated linen fabric with its fine structure seems weightless, the wearing feeling is therefore a very pleasant and light. Even the silver buttons have a smooth surface that is a pleasure to touch. Two deep pockets in the front offer space for larger small items such as a book or tablet. In addition, we have added some details to the extraordinary unique piece, which can be worn by all genders, giving it a subtly extravagant touch:the flowing lapel, which can be closed with a button, but can also be worn open.the frayed seams, reminiscent of the wabi-sabi aesthetic, where true beauty is located in imperfection.the eye-catching, slightly frayed seam that starts in the center front and continues on the back, losing height along the way and finding its endpoint on the front.the wavy finish - a metaphor for the ups and downs of life.the three ocher stripes on the sleeves, characteristic of wayward.Combined with the trousers 'Châtelet' or 'Goethe' made of the same material, the result is an extremely extravagant ensemble that highly emphasizes the obstinate character of the wearer. For those who like it a bit more subtle and grounded, offset the composition with the light and simple women's shirt 'Ingarden'.

Minimalist, straight cut men's trousers made of 100% black coated linen with special details. Subtly obstinate unique piece for individualists. Alexius Meinong was an Austrian philosopher and psychologist as well as founder of the object theory. For him, objects as such - "pure" objects - are "extrasensory": they can be or not be, because object for him is everything that the mind can grasp - real, unreal, possible, impossible. The association to the sense of possibility according to Robert Musil is not far away.We have dedicated the trousers of the same name from our own atelier to this thinker: they are straight at the leg, minimalist in design and ideal for men with strong upper and lower legs. The typical obstinacy is provided by special details such as the fabric edges as pocket ends, the implied "tear" on the back of the right leg as well as the three ochre stripes on the side pockets and the wave-like cut on the waistband of the back - an allusion to Heraclitus and "everything flows". The high-quality material is 100% coated linen. Two pockets in the front and another one on the back offer space for things you like to carry with you. All this makes 'Meinong' a subtly individualistic creation for those who appreciate understatement.Personal recommendation: combine Meinong with men's jacket 'Husserl' or men's coat 'Fromm', which are made of the same fabric.

Casual men's jacket made of the finest linen with zip and unusual details. Minimalist versatile companion for the cooler days and nights of spring and summer. "We want to go back to the 'things themselves,'" said the Austrian-German philosopher and mathematician Edmund Husserl, who is therefore also considered the father of phenomenology. He drew attention to the fact that all consciousness is always consciousness of something - be it real or imagined objects. Man and the world, subject and object, are therefore always connected. This subjective sense of connection to the world also radiates from the men's jacket named after him from the company's own atelier: It always defines itself in relation to the one who wears it - and vice versa. The exquisite material from which we have created it - especially light and coated linen - makes it particularly benevolent towards the world and the wearer. Versatile makes them the refined zip, which can be moved in either direction as desired. This results in different ways of wearing - from high-necked to casual-half-open to completely open for all those who appreciate free space. There are also two side pockets for the things you like to have with you. And then there are the obstinate details:the small, discreet stand-up collar.the seam that runs diagonally across the shoulders and extends into the sleeve.the small slit at the bottom zipper end.the vertical, asymmetrical seam on the back.the small waves at the cuffs of the sleeves.the obstinate characteristic three ochre stripes on the pocket. Combined with the trousers 'Meinong' in light linen in black and the pullover 'Artmann' in cotton in black, 'Husserl' becomes the third part of an unconventional ensemble for special occasions.

Light, minimalist women's jacket with zip and obstinate details. Subtly extravagant creation for individualists who know what they want.  Poetry, novels, children's books, stage texts, radio plays, and mixed forms thereof: the oeuvre of the Austrian writer Friederike Mayröcker, "who, as a black figure in her note-strewn apartment, has already become a legend during her lifetime" (Ö1), is considerable. A quick glance is enough to determine: The woman loved experimentation, the new and the unknown, and consistently exposed herself to it throughout her life.  The slim-fitting women's jacket from our own atelier that we've dedicated to this great word artist might even have liked to wear herself, who loved black so much. Made of light coated linen with two side pockets, the creation is similarly experimental and avant-garde as large parts of her work. Just as presumably everybody:r reads something different out of Mayröcker's texts, so probably everybody can interpret something different into the wearer of the women's jacket - depending on how she wears it. The zip makes the jacket extremely versatile: its two slides can be moved up and down at will. Particularly unconventional is the version in which the slides are placed in the middle and thereby open the jacket in both directions. Special are also the details of the ladies jacket:the slit at the bottom zipper end.the small, poetic wave at the end of the sleeves.the asymmetrical seam along the collar.the vertical seam on the back that ends in a small, unexpected slit at the hem.the back, which looks like a screen broken into several parts, separated by seams that partially extend over the shoulders and into the sleeves - a metaphor for different phases of life or the many parts of this obstinate woman.The three ocher stripes on the pockets and sleeve, typical of eigensinnig wien. Combined with the pants 'Châtelet' made of the same material in black and the shirt 'Behn' in white made of bamboo, the result is an unconventional ensemble for special occasions.

Unconventional avant-garde women's trousers made of 100% coated linen with special details. Rarity for individualists. Émilie du Châtelet was an extraordinary intellectual in 18th-century France: she was a mathematician, physicist, philosopher and - together with her lover Voltaire - translator of Newton's works. Allegedly, she even wrote on Newtonian theories during the birth of her daughter (!), from which she ultimately died. The women's trousers named after her from the company's own atelier are just as unusual: they have a slightly wider cut, two small pleats on the front and diagonally running detail seams. Other idiosyncratic details include the fabric edges as pocket ends, the three ochre stripes on the pockets and the wave-like cut on the waistband of the back, which can be interpreted as a reference to Heraclitus and "everything flows". The light material is 100% coated linen. Two pockets in the front and another one on the back offer space for things you like to carry with you. All this makes 'Châtelet ' an unconventional creation for individualists.The special pants go perfectly with the avant-garde jacket 'Camus' or the oversize coat 'Laozi', which are made of the same fabric and in combination with the women's shirt 'Ingarden' create a fancy ensemble.
