Carol Christian Poell Glued Wool Coat - AW03 "Space / Inner Space"


    Carol Christian Poell is one of the leading designers in the Avant-Garde world of fashion. A combined fascination with textiles, ingenuity and masterful tailoring Poell’s philosophical view of garments has set him apart from other contemporary Avant-garde designers and has garnered him a cult-like following. Born the heir to a family of leather manufacturers Poell quickly immersed himself in the trade at the age of 15. After a few years of studying tailoring and design in Austria, Poell, feeling despondent about his education, left Austria to attend the Domus Academy in Milan, where he would receive his master's in Fashion Design. It was after this leap and move to Italy that he established CCP. After a small capsule collection in 1994 consisting of only a jacket, trousers, shirt, and t-shirt a clientele of Japanese buyers went on to purchase almost the entirety of his collection. In the consequent year, he pursued a more full-fledged collection and quickly garnered praise from industry favorites, being called one of the most “researched” designers of the time. This coat is fabricated out of fine wool. It features Poell's signature pagoda shoulder and a slim fit at the waist that creates an uncanny androgynous fit. Yellow glue strip along the waist of the garment and detachable buttons. Tear along the waist and glue is beginning to pull apart from use.
