Risk… Experiment… Liberate the wild beast within you! This is the message from the Men’s Fall/Winter 2012/2013 collection conceived by the German designer Philipp Plein, well-known for his edgy collections in Italy and abroad. The PHILIPP PLEIN style is for gentlemen who are not afraid to flaunt their masculine attitude while enjoying the combined pleasures of extreme luxury and original Rock ’n’ Roll.
Not by chance, the fashion show takes place in one of the chicest nightclubs in Milan, preferred stage for exotic international performances in addition to being a favorite hangout for socialites and businessmen from all over the world: William’s Club le Roi, located in the historic Galleria Manzoni, in the heart of Milan’s fashion district. Intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Champagne and performances by the artists of London’s Cirque du Soir famous the world over for their post punk reinterpretations of classic circus acts. Live show by Aaron Keller, German singer in crooner style, son of famous actor Mark Keller and perfect Elvis Presley look alike. A confirmation of authentic rock and roll style.
The new collection represents contemporary hedonism, luxuriously expressed in silhouettes and textures, rigorously exotic and unmistakably exclusive. The beasts of the collection are defined by ostrich skin, python, crocodile and fur. Ostrich skin dresses a biker jacket, coats and vests with sheepskin collars and fur hoods, while blazer lapels are created in python and become the shining star of the collection. As a special gift for the demanding eye, crocodile prevails in the entire collection: from coats to travel trolleys, from classic lace up’s to brief cases, and of course the motorcycle helmet. Crocodile is heating up the new collection. The outstanding season’s luxury “must have” is the crocodile jacket in nabuk, soft as velvet and lined with cashmere for outstanding comfort.
