Vienna-based footwear label Rani Bageria is a contemporary brand with an individual and cross-cultural point of view that brings together unparalleled design and superb comfort.
Building on her love of ornament as a mode of expression as well as meditation, Rani Bageria finds inspiration in both the past and the present.
The designer draws from influences such as Indo-Islamic architecture to medieval styles and the mythology of the Amazons. Rani Bageria’s shoes, with an aesthetic based on the iconic Pistol boot archetype, radiate a self-assured attitude, firmly placing her designs in the now.
Blending the archaic with the modern, the wearable with the directional, Rani Bageria’s designs encourage movement and bolster a feeling of liberation.
Made for contemporary women who possess a freedom of spirit, who have places to go and things to do, Rani Bageria’s platform ankle boots and mules are the ideal stand-out staple that provides daily comfort.
Using the artisanal expertise of a small family business in Marche, Italy’s traditional shoemaking region, and combining it with her Antwerp Academy education, strengthened by her experience designing at Chloé, Rani Bageria has gained a loyal following with her singular brand of expressive footwear.
Rani Bageria set off as a ready-to-wear label in 2013 before transitioning mainly to footwear. Shop selected ready-to-wear items from the collection archive
