Austrian fashion designers on tour: Paris, Vienna, Tokyo
Fashionoffice selected fashion, beauty and accessories pieces from collections of Austrian design labels which will show in March in Paris: a bag (which makes think of wickerwork of classical coffee house chairs) in relaxed elegant style by Bradaric Ohmae, WienerBlut's unisex fragrance 'Sale Marino' which pays homage to Viennese Belle Époque, the bracelet and sunglasses with art sculpture appeal by Polaire, and a pant suit with flower pattern by Austrian Fashion Award 2014 winner Rani Bageria.
fig.: The elegant bag in relaxed style makes think of classical Viennese coffee house chairs' wickerwork! It's from the current collection by Bradaric Ohmae. The label was founded by Tanja Bradaric and Taro Ohmae in 2012; both studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (classes of Raf Simons, Veronique Branquinho and Bernhard Willhelm).

'Sale Marino' is one of six unisex fragrances of the 'Belle Époque Edition' by the Viennese perfumery house WienerBlut. The creations of the label (founded 2008) are inspired by 'Taschentuch Parfums' - perfumes which were applied to handkerchiefs at the fin-de-siècle (end of the 19th century).

The black sunglasses and golden bracelet are designed by Polaire, a collective which works in various fields (arts, architecture, fashion...). Photos: (C) Polaire.
The pant suit with bordeaux and black flower print on white is from the FW2015/16 collection of knitwear and footwear by Rani Bageria. Rani Bageria received the Austrian Fashion Award 2014. Photo: (C) Maria Ziegelboeck.
