Women’s long linen jacket in grey
Long women’s jacket made of lightweight, linen-like ramie. An unusual creation that combines elegance and roughness with playful severity in an obstinate way.
“Since it is very conducive to health, I have decided to be happy,” is one of the most famous quotes by 18th-century French author, poet and philosopher known by his pen name Voltaire.
The jacket named after him was created in our own workshop and is a tribute to the poet: It was made for people looking for creations that equally combine elegance, roughness and playful severity. On the one hand, the fabric is responsible for the success of this symbiosis: Ramie, also called china grass, is a linen-like fabric obtained from the stem of the ramie plant, a bast fiber. The typical characteristics of ramie are its subtle, silky sheen – and its great lightness.
This women’s jacket features a variety of obstinate details:
the elaborate collar which can be worn both as a lapel and as a stand-up collar
the special sleeves with asymmetrical finish and the three ochre lines
the ocher yellow seam bindings inside the jacket
the seams deliberately left open at the bottom
the subtle, natural-looking horn buttons
the two large pockets for smartphone, wallet and other items and the three-line detail
"Voltaire' matches the women's trousers „Leontion“ and „Brentano“ as well as to the vest „Heller“, which are all made of the same fabric and, when combined with the light jacket, turn into an estival ensemble.
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.”
