Unconventional pullover for fall and winter that makes deconstruction visible and resolves contradictions of round and angular, soft and "raw" in an obstinate way.

The French philosopher Jacques Derrida founded the method of deconstruction, in which texts are critically scrutinized 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.

As with the 'Derrida' pullover: 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-degree angle that brings round and square together in a wayward way. As with most of the new in-house creations, 'Derrida' features the three stripes in ochre at the cuffs. All this makes the men's sweater an unconventional creation, in which there is a lot of thought and questions.

Women combine the obstinate pullover with the black trousers 'Didion' or 'Feyerabend' and create a casual ensemble for colder days. An unconventional creation for men is created in combination with the trousers 'Gropius' or 'Montesquieu', which are both made of a fine wool fabric.

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.”
