Short coarse textured linen trousers in black
Avant-garde reinterpretation of shorts made of coarse textured soft linen, which surprises with special details and can be worn by all genders.
"Der Schüler Gerber" is at once the first and best-known work of the writer, journalist, publicist, screenwriter and editor Friedrich Torberg, whose grave of honor at Vienna's Central Cemetery lies right next to that of Arthur Schnitzler: his love of stories outlasts even his own death.
The short linen trousers with wide legs from the in-house Atelier, which run just above the knee, are to be understood as a homage to Torberg; they remind us that we will always remain students:inside. In its unconventionality, it can also be read as an invitation to take new paths, to adopt different perspectives, and to think about things differently, because as media theorist Neil Postman said so well? "Kids come to school as question marks and leave as dots." This is something to be prevented, even if in one's own hindsight.
So what makes shorts different?
Running diagonally across the buttocks is a frayed seam that extends into one pant leg. In addition to the two side pockets, there are two backpockets at different heights - one of which has a striking finish in contrasting white. The leg cuffs are frayed - and therefore more question mark-like than point-like. A subtle asymmetry runs like a thread through the summery trousers, which can be worn with sneakers, sandals or summer boots.
Pair 'Torberg' with the light summer sweater 'Tolstoi', whose minimalistic design grounds the trousers' unconventionality, or with the T-shirt 'Serres' for even more extravagance.
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.”
