PHILIPP PLEIN presents his 2015 Cruise Collection in New York on Thursday 4th June.
The collection is a sophisticated marriage of signature non-conformism and high cultural references. Classic waisted evening coats and A-line dresses, elegantly cut in silk fabrics, receive an injection of youth with bold prints and emoticon motifs.
The emoticons continue to take centre stage in the collection: magnified and rendered in CRYSTALLIZED ™ - Swarovski Elements, lending them a pixellated quality reminiscent of Pac-man, Tamagotchi and other vintage games.
We see them emblazoned across bomber jackets and as luxe additions to the signature accessories. Drawing inspiration from contemporary art, the PHILIPP PLEIN Cruise 2016 Collection elevates the quotidian to the status of must have, while guarding the brand’s key element of fun.
