Spectacularity, transgression and extravagance are the adjectives that best describe the character of the Philipp Plein brand. Metallic leather jackets, or enriched with studs and patches, decorated t-shirts, ripped jeans, oversized down jackets, glittery dresses and skirts, colorful sweatshirts and high boots over the knee are garments and accessories with a strong impact, which perfectly communicate the rebel soul of the brand and its designer.
Philipp Plein was born in Munich in 1978. He began his career as an interior designer. In 2004 the designer launched the first prêt-à-porter collection, seducing the public with a new idea of fun and excessive luxury. In 2008 the brand opened its flagship store in Monte Carlo and its first showroom in Milan and, in a very short time, it conquered the international scene.
Today the brand, one of the few that is still totally independent, shows during Milan Fashion Week. Philipp Plein fashion shows are unique events, with sensational sets embellished with breathtaking special effects and the presence of DJs and special guests. Not only artists such as Chris Brown, Rita Ora and Nicki Minaj, but also athletes, like Messi and Mauro Icardi, love to wear his creations.
Philipp Plein collections for men, women and children are treated in every detail, starting from the quality of the leathers and the highly sought-after materials used. The icon, a skull studded with Swarovski, a must in his creations, faithfully manifests the brand's nonconformist imprint. Philipp Plein garments, a mix of pop and contemporary art, streetwear and sportswear, are worn by eccentric people that love to flaunt a cheeky and provocative luxury, in full-scale rock style.
