Carol Christian Poell
Carol Christian Poell Tornado Trousers
This distinct piece from Carol Christian Poell earned it’s now famous name due to the intricate yet comfortable tornado-like stitching that runs diagonally up the legs of the trousers. This particular technique creates a multitude of pleats and creases that add both volume & visual interest to the trousers. Despite the trousers looking very disorganized & heavy, the form fitting lining on the inside of the legs make this pair of trousers surprisingly comfortable. Hidden front metal clip & hidden buttons on the back of this piece add to its already futuristic & severe look.
Carol Christian Poell has cemented himself as one of the most popular & boundary pushing artisanal designers perhaps ever, due in great part to his technically complex designs. His bizarre yet beloved techniques of object dying, blood dying, leather tanning as well as his sculptural artworks span close to 30 years. The quality of Carol’s work in addition to his obscure presentations, mysterious & low profile brand presence have made Carol Christian Poell a house favorite here at Akaibu.
