Tolstoi Special wool pullover with asymmetrical stitching in black

Regular price € 440,00 including VAT

Reduced to the essentials, yet extravagant, slim longsleeve made of thick wool. Minimalist creation in the cooler season for essence-seeking individualists.

"All happy families are alike, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" is the first and probably most famous sentence from Leo Tolstoi's novel Anna Karenina. The Russian writer is still considered one of the most important literary figures and intellectuals in the history of literature.

The slim men's pullover of the same name with the round neckline from the company's own atelier is to be understood as a homage to Tolstoi. Made of pure virgin wool with a rough texture, it is reduced to the essentials and only reveals its sophistication upon closer inspection:

The three ochre stripes at the cuffs are a subtle, obstinate detail.
An asymmetrical seam runs from the back over the shoulders to the front - a metaphor for life, which doesn't always run in a straight line and often only unfolds in detours.

Together with the unconventional trousers 'Diderot', 'Goethe', 'Feyerabend' or 'Montesquieu' in black, 'Tolstoi' can be combined in an obstinate way.
On cold days we recommend to wear the pullover with the men's coat 'Schumpeter' or the model 'Voltaire' for women, which are made of the same material.

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.”
