The runway, a roulette wheel ablaze with lights, color and tantalizing models. The sexy gentlemen of PHILIPP PLEIN’S new sporty elegance. An international audience with celebrities from the world of fashion and entertainment attended the PHILIPP PLEIN Homme Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show, for its debut in the official MILANO MODA UOMO calendar. Opening the show, the Supermodel Isabeli Fontana, portrays PHILIPP PLEIN’S Goddess of Fortune for the evening.
The guests seated, a blinding spotlight, followed by the appearance of the beautiful supermodel, Isabeli Fontana, in Milan exclusively to open the show and play her game. The first spin….. then the second…. JACKPOT!Lights, music and color invade the theater. On the runway, the new PHILIPP PLEIN Homme Spring/Summer 2014 collection and the worldwide debut of PHILIPP PLEIN Underwear, the latest incarnation from the daring Swiss Maison. Philipp Plein played his cards right, and has won again. Betting on a new frontier and a guarantee: the quality of ”Made in Italy” production remains an unmistakable element in each of his creations.
Mixing & Matching themed the looks on the runway. Combinations without rules: extremely refined, formal classics with pieces derived from the street, absolutely underground, like the legendary leather jacket. A classic from PHILIPP PLEIN, revisited in sporty chic style. Realized in bicolor red and black, with studded lapels and quilted sleeves, worn over a sweater and shirt complete with an ultra-classic black bow tie, sporty cotton shorts and playing card adorned loafers. A cluster of elegance, fashion created by contrast. Like a game of cards: fun, intuition and surprise. The classic yachtsman look is transformed. Total white like a Million Dollar Man. The leather jacket is covered in mini ABS plastic studs, light and resistant to the elements, seen also on bags and slip-ons, rigorously white. The super slim tuxedo is toned down with camouflage lace ups or baggy jogging pants. The backpack, luxurious while sporty, is an integral part of even the most classic look, and perfectly underlines the sporty elegance proposed by PHILIPP PLEIN. A style that is never dull and always unexpected. Because to be a winner today one must be both a refined gentleman and a clever improviser at the same time, according to Philipp Plein, who ended the show accompanied by the beautiful Isabeli under a cascade of phoney one dollar bills, featuring “Natural Born Winners” to play in his casino. An international crowd from the world of fashion and entertainment, enjoyed the afterparty with DJ set by Marcelo Burlon, champagne and cocktails a go-go. Among the guests were the television personality Fiammetta Cicogna, fashion blogger Eleonora Carisi, It girl Candela Novembre and the actress Barbara Snellenburg. Guests played, danced and partied until the late hours, as desired by Philipp Plein. Play the game, challenge the cards, try it again. Always for fun and only for pure entertainment.
