Carol Christian Poell, an Austrian designer who holes up in a studio in
Milan's Naviglio district where he quietly designs an ultra-niche, cult
label that he doesn't always produce and only shows to the public when
he feels like it.

Carol Christian Poell, born in Linz in 1966, lives and works in Milan,
Italy. After having been trained as a men's and a ladies' tailor in
Vienna (Michelbeurn), he studied fashion design at the Domus Academy in
Milan where he also founded the production and distribution company
C.C.P. Srl together with his partner Sergio Simone. After having
presented his first men's collection in 1995, he developed his ladies'
collection from classical elements of traditional menswear three years
later. The distribution network for his articles of clothing and
accessories, which are quite extravagant in terms of production
technology, includes more than 40 dealers all over the world.
