UTE PLOIER was initially established as a menswear brand in 2003.
Her current collection marks the debut of her womenswear line.
The brand’s DNA is a vision of sensual yet edgy femininity. The collection fuses exquisite premium fabrics and elegant comfort with references of masculine tailoring.
UTE PLOIER stands for a sophisticated yet easy to wear attitude with precise shapes and subtle details just as its menswear line. Materials and color combinations reveal the label’s love for surreal art and unexpected twists. Artisanal and regional manufacturers are carefully selected to guarantee highest quality.
UTE PLOIER is sold in selected stores in Europe, USA and Japan.
Designer Ute Ploier studied fashion design at Central Saint Martins in London and the University of Applied Arts in Vienna under the direction of Raf Simons, Viktor & Rolf and JC de Castelbajac.
Her collections won her numerous prizes, including the «Prix Hommes» for best menswear collection at the renowned «Festival d'Hyères» for fashion and photography in France.
Ute Ploier was also a finalist at the prestigious «Swiss Textile Awards» in Zurich.
Ute Ploier’s work has been featured in i-D Magazine and the New York Times Magazine among others.
Hirofumi Kurino of United Arrows describes her style as intelligent with a twist of humour, cool but not cold, simple but not minimal.
Besides her own line, Ute Ploier has collaborated with clients such as La Redoute or Topman.
Ute Ploier lives and works in Vienna.
