Elegant women's trousers with small pleats made of light cotton in black
Unconventional avant-garde women's trousers made of 100% soft cotton with special details. Rarity for individualists.
Émilie du Châtelet was an extraordinary intellectual in 18th-century France: she was a mathematician, physicist, philosopher and - together with her lover Voltaire - translator of Newton's works. Allegedly, she even wrote on Newtonian theories during the birth of her daughter (!), from which she ultimately died.
The women's trousers named after her from the company's own atelier are just as exceptional: they have a slightly wider cut, two small pleats on the front and diagonally running detail seams. Other idiosyncratic details include the fabric edges as pocket ends, the three ochre stripes on the pockets and the wave-like cut on the waistband of the back, which can be interpreted as a reference to Heraclitus and "everything flows". The soft material, which is hand-dyed in our atelier and deliberately irregular in its coloring, is 100% organic cotton. Two pockets in the front and another one on the back offer space for things you like to carry with you. All this makes 'Châtelet ' an unconventional creation for individualists.
The avant-garde trousers go perfectly with the blazer 'Christie', which is made of the same fabric and in combination with the women's top 'Michiko' makes a fancy women's suit.
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.”
