Carol Christian Poell White Woven Blazer GM/1993L ELEFANT/4 - AW04 “Instant Collection”
Details 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 aside 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 masters 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. 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 blazer is intricately woven in a wool and cotton blend fabrication and features Poell’s signature shoulder pads, slim-cut, and is lined with a cupro fabric.
