Roquentin Mens short coat with zip from special linen in black

Regular price € 690,00 including VAT

Extravagant men's short coat with zip in textured linen that can be worn in many ways. With obstinate details surprising rarity for spring and summer.

The randomness of his existence puts Antoine Roquentin, the main character of Jean-Paul Sartre's first novel "The Disgust," in just such a condition. However, the main work of existentialism is not only a dark one, because in it Sartre also addresses a consolation: the fact, called contingency, that existence is a unique one. Therefore, it allows the individual to invent himself.

The same possibility lies dormant in the men's short coat from our own atelier, which we named after the anti-hero. The versatility of this avant-garde one-of-a-kind piece, handmade from special linen with a striking structure, virtually invites the wearer to reinvent himself again and again. The casual cut obstinacy with two side pockets and two inside pockets proves courage through some obstinate details.

This includes:

the zip with two closures that can be moved in either direction as desired, giving plenty of scope for wearing styles ranging from high-necked to open. If you like it particularly unconventional, place the two closures in the middle.
the unconventional collar, a hybrid of stand-up collar and turned-down collar.
the frayed finishes at the hem and sleeves, reminiscent of the wabi-sabi aesthetic, where true beauty is located in imperfection.
the lining in contrasting color, which becomes an eye-catching detail when the sleeves are worn casually rolled up.
the three ocher stripes on the pocket and sleeve, characteristic of obstinate.

 In combination with the trousers 'Kafka' made of special linen in black and the light summer pullover 'Artmann' in black, 'Roquentin' results in a very extraordinary ensemble for individualists who appreciate the special and rare.

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.”
