Proposition:Traditional tailoring from typical and precious fabrics. Proficiency: Conceptual and professional competence of a contemporary designer. Synthesis: The Cool Tailoring Project by Weber + Weber.
Christian Weber is back – together with his partner Manuel with and a truly groundbreaking project! His talent as an experimental designer – trained at the Los Angeles Fashion Art School – blends with the basics of Italian and Viennese tailoring, giving life to organic perfection.
Weber + Weber’s first project on the pulse of men’s fashion:Christian and Manuel create new clothing for today’s cosmopolitan man as business and life partners.
Manuel Weber gives his contribution as a profound connoisseur of “matter” in the fundamental sense. Born in Carinthia, and deeply rooted in the land and the flora due to his profession as a gardener, Manuel Weber is already naturally aligned in the project that features pure and raw tailoring. It conveys a subtle and cool glamour, without superstructures. The selection and handling of materials is simply a part of his world.
Indeed, materials plays a leading role shaping beauty in the Weber + Weber project: Fitted jackets in extra-light felted wool, and sharp cut boiled wool jerseys define winter; while stone washed linens, indigo treated checks, washed suede or vintage summer woolens define the Summer Season.
Anatomically structured gilets, extra-light denim shirts, and noble ties are worked by hand in the traditional Viennese manner with large and sequential stitches. Bomber jackets in natural leather are waxed, washed, and tied with pleated and soft felted wool. The knitted cotton cashmere shirt and turtleneck are accentuated with wool patches. In the summer months all knitwear is available with a “frosted” finish, and a vintage feel that mimics the good ol’ days. The heavy cable cardigan, as well as scarves, are garment washed for a soft cashmere feel. The typical “yoke” of the jeans provides an extra perfect fit like traditional trousers. Old sartorial techniques and the hand-embroidered cross stitches become part of the W+W style. Cross-genre work runs like a red thread through the work of W+W style and is distinguished by comfort and is stunningly contemporary.
Weber + Weber is raw sophistication. Elegant to the core. Stretching beyond trends, each piece a piece of eternity, and when worn with pleasure it will retain its charm forever. The older it grows, the more beautiful it will become. Each piece has a number; an individual code, detailing its journey, manufacturing details, and materials. Completing the Weber+Weber portfolio is a series of men’s accessories, perfectly in line with the cultivated, environmentally friendly and modern brand vision.
Intellect and heart: On one hand, you have structural perfection, the rigor of edge-to-edge seams, and the strict rules of Italian and Viennese tailoring. On the other, you have the lively and unconventional use of standard materials, a combination of opposing archetypes, and a subtle sensuality that lends warmth to the cool structure of tailored garments. Everything is brought together and perfected with skillfully set details.
