|PARIS, Jun 29, 2009 / FW/ — The brainchild of designers Marcus Hausleitner and Karin Krapfenbauer, the HOUSE OF THE VERY ISLAND label lies in a body work of formal accents on the bricolage, the deconstruction and reconstruction of given dress codes.Based in Vienna, this organic label is centered on ecological sustainability as well as social and political discourses, notably the issue of stereotypes created by these discourses.
Rooted in the framework of underground artists, musicians and film-makers in its home city, the designers and the label has a natural affinity to the cultural construction of reality and identity, especially the issue of gender and its performance is crucial to all our approaches towards a fashion statement.
Created through ironic distortions and citational shifts, the clothes are meant to suit all genders and give way to individual expressions.
