The German stylist Philipp Plein, founder of the eponymous ready-to-wear brand, is at the centre of the Milanese fashion news. After distinguishing itself with a new boutique, the stylist drew attention to himself during the Italian fashion week.
Opening of Philipp Plein’s new boutique in Milan
Already the happy owner of a point of sale in Milan, the Philipp Plein brand is riding on its success and opening a second boutique in the Italian fashion capital. This new address, devoted to its collections for women and children, opened its doors on the prestigious Via Montenapoleone, the same avenue as the famous pastry chef Angelo Marchesi.
Extended over 150 square metres, the store was decorated by the interior design agency AquiliaAlberg with the collaboration of designer Philipp Plein himself. This partnership bore an elegant and resolutely in vogue concept-store.
The store’s interior is equipped with large marble blocs with a steel finish. The walls are dressed in black and white, bringing refinement and giving the place character. The brand’s logo, of hexagonal form, appears on some pillars.
A chandelier of Murano glass dangles from the ceilings accompanied by the brand’s famous symbol, a smiling skull.
Philipp Plein reveals its spring-summer collection 2015
Like James Long and Zegna, Philipp Plein unveiled his new ready-to-wear collection for men, for spring-summer 2015.
Before revealing his new collections to fashion enthusiasts, the fashion designer expressed his interest in the event. “It will be the most incredible show that the Milan fashion week has known,” he added.
Hence, the show took place in the Botta swimming pool, a place entirely renovated for the occasion by the designer.
Audacious and novel, the collection reveals nautical influences, one of this year’s summer themes. The reefer jackets inspired by the nautical wardrobe, stripes and the predominance of marine blue and white are the major expressions of the German designer’s ocean spirit.
Daring combinations, the fashion designer revisits the badge in a number of his pieces. This ornament is at the centre of the show, adorning vests and unstructured ensembles.
Devoted to its ready-to-wear collection for women and children, Philipp Plein’s new Milanese boutique will not display the brand’s latest men’s collection. Nevertheless, Ohmyluxury has some pictures of the Milanese fashion show.
