ute ploier.

i’m adding a new menswear line to my favorites list.

first brought to my attention via modeman, i thumbed through the past collections and discovered i liked most of this eponymous line. restrained, modern, with a clear, detailed, and forward-thinking hand at work. ute ploier presented its first collection in the fall of 2005, and is designed by its austrian namesake, a woman with great aesthetic taste. ploier was a student of well-known belgian industrial/fashion designer raf simmons at the University of Applied Arts of Vienna, and launched her label after she won first prize for “best men’s collection” at Hyeres [french fashion festival]. to be honest, i was surprised to find that the gepetto of this line was a woman; pleasantly surprised, that is.

here are four of my favorite looks from fall/winter 2009:
