Poell grew up in Austria, forcefully immersed in the leather business against his will. Although he mastered the art of constructing garments and manufacturing leather from his family his entire teenage years, he became resentful towards the fashion industry and its patrons. Eventually, he parted from this business and decided to take design into his own hands. Before he could do so, he needed to master the art of tailoring, so he attended “The Costume Michelbeuern School for Tailoring and Dressmaking” in Vienna, until he grew unhappy there, at which point he moved to the “Domus Academy” in Milan. After receiving his masters in fashion design, he shortly after established a company under his namesake “Carol Christian Poell” in 1995.
Carol Christian Poell has remained one of the most enigmatic designers to date within the avant-garde menswear scene. Poell’s design techniques are more comparable to an artist like Francis Bacon rather than a fashion designer. Every piece tells a story – beginning with the garment’s construction and ending with how it is sold to the customer. Poell characterizes these customers as “victims” who develop intimate relationships with their respective articles of clothing, whether they like it or not.
