Thesis: traditional tailoring made of ancient gestures and precious fabrics
Christian Weber is back – together with his partner Manuel with a truly breakthrough 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 a perfect osmosis.
The first project of cutting-edge tailored menswear Weber+Weber: Christian and Manuel, connected in business and in life, create a new garment for the modern cosmopolitan man.
Manuel Weber gives his contribution as a profound connoisseur of matter. Born in Carinthia, rooted in the land and the flora, due to his gardener profession, Manuel Weber is already naturally aligned in the project of purist and raw tailoring, conveying a subtle and cool glamour, without superstructures. The matter selection and composition is simply part of his world.
Indeed, matter plays a leading role shaping beauty in the Weber+Weber project: Fitted jackets in extra light felted wool and sharp cut boiled wool jerseys for the Winter Season; Stone washed linens, indago treated checks, Washed suede or vintage summer woolens define the Summer Season. Perfect for hot summer days the traditional but newly cool tailored waist coat.
Anatomically structured gilets, shirts in extra light denim, paired with reverse handstitched ties following the ancient Viennese technique, made with large and sequential stitches. Bomber in natural leather, waxed, washed tied with pleated soft felted wool. The knitted cotton cashmere shirt and turtle neck are finished with wool patches. The knits are all “frosted” in the summer months and have a vintage feel. The heavy cable cardigan as well as scarfs are garment washed for a soft cashmere feel. The jeans yoke applied on the traditional pant, always very fitted. Old sartorial techniques and the handmade stitched cross become part of the W+W style. The genre contamination is pervasive, but always distinguished by comfort and absolute contemporaneity.
Weber+Weber is raw sophistication. Raw elegance. Beyond trends. Each item stays with the wearer forever, never losing its charm. The older it grows more beautiful it will become. Each item has a number, detailing its journey, manufacturing details, materials, as an identification card. Completing the Weber+Weber world is a series of male accessory, perfectly in line with the educated, eco-friendly and modern brand vision.
Intellect and heart: on one side, the structure perfection, the rigor of edge-to-edge seams, the strict rules of Italian and Viennese tailoring; on the other, the liveliness shaking up the standard use of materials, combining opposite archetypes, warming up the cool structure of tailored garments with a subtle sensuality, outlined by details.
