Carol Christian Poell AW97-98 Leather Jacket
This heavy leather jacket by Carol Christian Poell offers a structured and rigid outer shell that can easily be integrated into one's wardrobe. The leather is very supple to the touch yet keeps the intended shape of the jacket very well. Metal clips are featured throughout to help fasten & close the jacket. The lining seen both inside of the shell & in the hood help with overall comfort & add warmth, making it perfect for tough conditions.
Little information is known about Poell’s 1997-98 collection titled “Aerodynamics” without doing quite some digging. However, that is the very thing that makes Carol such an interesting yet beloved designer. It is easy to feel lost & mystified when attempting to understand the intricacies & meaning of both garments & presentations. Carol Christian Poell has only ever done a handful of interviews, very few pictures exist of him & nothing is known about his personal life. He truly is one of fashion's biggest intrigues. He in fact hasn't released a new collection since 2011, yet it seems like the fashion world is still stuck on trying to comprehend his very first 1994 presentation. Such is the complexity of his work.
Season: Autumn/Winter ‘97-‘98
