Men's pullover for autumn and winter that makes deconstruction visible and resolves contradictions of round and square, soft and "raw" in an obstinate way.
The French philosopher Jacques Derrida founded the method of deconstruction, in which texts are critically scrutinised and disassembled in order to arrive at their essence (which may well be contradictory!), in the 1960s. An experimental approach of disassembling and reassembling is also the method we like to use in our own collections. Contradictions often dissolve into harmony.
This is also the case with the 'Derrida' jumper: the asymmetrical seams and frayed,open hems make deconstruction visible. The light viscose-wool blend looks organic, reminiscent of stones and barren landscapes. The collar is special with its 90-degreeangle, which brings round and square together in an idiosyncratic way. As with most of the new in-house creations, 'Derrida' also has the three stripes in ochre at the sleeve ends. All this makes the men's jumper an unconventional creation with a lot of thought and questions.
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.”
