Foucault Versatile and wide coat of flowing material in black

Regular price € 550,00 including VAT

Elegant and versatile oversize coat made of soft, flowing rayon in black, which can also be worn as a dress or blouse by obstinate women.

Truthful bliss, according to Michel Foucault, can only be achieved through self-care and transformation. The introspective oversize coat with elongated and flowing wavy back draws the eyes of the outside world to the "self-culture" of the wayward and brings Foucault's Epimeleia heatou principle to life. With every movement, the body can unfold freely thanks to the wide cut. A high-necked, two-part collar allows the lively rayon fabric and its wearer to turn in on themselves at the same time. Worn sometimes as a dress, sometimes as a coat or blouse, a new transformation of the self is in store with every sunrise.

Every handmade detail of the casual viscose coat shows two sides of the truth, which is why only Foucault comes into question as the namesake for the avant-garde top:

The unconventionally cut coat is significantly longer at the wavy back than at the front. Thus, back and shoulders up to the wavy collar appear like a gently shimmering water surface, whose self hides much more
The collar with extraordinary wave can be worn lying down or standing up and obstinately completes the changeable aesthetics of the unique piece
Seven attention-grabbing buttons
close the coat, which can also be worn open or half-open to emphasize the wayward self
An asymmetrical hem with an artful pleat serves as a finishing touch for the long sleeves, which can be casually pushed to the elbows for a new look at yourself
Three unobtrusive ochre-colored bars decorate the side seam

Combined with the unconventional harem trousers 'Averroes' and the tie 'Dreyfus' made of the same material, an avant-garde ensemble for special occasions is created.

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.”
