As alluded to in the title of the collection, each piece thereof is a snapshot of STEINWIDDER’s work in progress.
Worn out t-shirts and sweatshirts, ripped apart and torn into pieces, provide the source material for the entire collection. They are carefully reassigned and sewn together to create new designs recalling various rural styles of clothing. The result is a very distinctly patched up and mended look of ragged elegance. Without the use of other supporting materials, inserts or backing, STEINWIDDER reconfigures the torn pieces into sloppy sweater dresses, trousers, oversized shirts and jackets. The remaining traces of usage add to the characteristic style underlying the highly crafted design.
The entire collection is produced in Vienna. It is to be viewed as a project-oriented collection of exclusive and unique pieces, that may be extended and amended to include associatively related designs at any time. Reproductions are created in limited series, showing affine characteristics.
