Individualized style islands are an integral part of our lives. We are entangled with these virtually curated environments through social media, data-driven advertisements or virtual reality porn. In MARTIN NIKLAS WIESER’s collections, artistic expression merges with these systems, not as a static decision but as a dynamic process. The collection conceptualizing happens through deep learning neural networks, generative design and AI. Based on datasets, which are collected through automated bots, the process opens up new pathways and possibilities for designing and manufacturing. Human craftsmanship goes hand in hand with computer-aided design. The collections consist of ready to wear luxury garments free of gendered connotations or class. Designed in Vienna and made in Italy by small manufacturers. The brand is committed to promoting a healthy, human-scale economy by building a transparent supply chain of deadstock, biodegradable and recycled materials. Martin Niklas Wieser established his eponymous label in 2022. Martin Niklas Wieser is an Italian designer based in Vienna. M.N.W.’s unique aesthetic is informed by an investigation of proportion and silhouette and fluent referencing of subcultural contexts. Inspired by the human body and the shapes it can form in conjunction with clothes, technology, and its aggressive interference in privacy and identity inform his work. Since M.N.W. shares a working-class background the mundane regularity of the working-class reality that forms his life is an inspiration M.N.W. brings into his work. M.N.W.’s work was featured in leading publications such as 032C, Dazed, iD, Purple Magazine, Vogue and Interview Magazine. M.N.W. studied fashion design at Weissensee Art Academy Berlin and did a research study program at the Royal College of Art London. M.N.W. previously worked as a designer with Proenza Schouler in New York City, Nikolas Andreas Taralis in Paris and as a trend consultant with MY Theresa in Paris, Fernando Romero in Mexico City and others.
