The unorthodox grandeur of Austrian designer Ute Ploier’s most recent collections has not only confirmed her meticulous eye for form and fabric but her status as a designer who moves beyond the creation of merely serviceable clothing. Dealing with male archetypes – boxers or gentlemanly craftsmen – Ploier’s assuredly masculine garments are made, and her stories told, with the utmost respect and precision. Ploier spoke with Dazed Digital in Paris regarding the psychology of her clothing, their providence and the processes of their creation – and meeting the designer was not entirely unlike discovering a long-lost member of the family.
"I think it’s like a second skin, a piece of clothing, so I go to great effort to make a man who wears my clothes to feel comfortable and sensual."
Coming to Topman in September, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
