An Irrational Element’s sources are many, ranging from music, architecture and nature to name a few. Even its namesake comes from the words of philosopher Karl Popper and it’s that reinterpreted philosophy of openness and multidisciplinarity that the brand prides themselves on. Helmed by founder and designer Kai Bolwijn and currently based in Antwerp, Belgium, each collection is a showcase for their varied influences.
The brand is defined by its thoroughness, thoughtfulness, transparency and unique perspective. Not trying to reinvent the wheel, each piece is designed to be enjoyed and absorbed into daily wear and use. From utilitarian details and design choices, beautifully textured fabrics the engraved custom horn buttons, An Irrational Element aims to do it all the “right” way and responsibly, resulting in a piece you can be proud to wear and a brand we’re more than proud to stock.
