Last season, Philipp Plein’s show broke the internet with a hot strut on the runway by Teyana Taylor and performances by Future, Nicki Minaj, Yo Gotti, 21 Savage, and more. This season it was a futuristic Winter Wonder land on night 3 of New York Fashion Week as guests arrived to the industrial Brooklyn Navy Yard. Greeted by massive foil structures, faux snowflakes on the ground, and falling snow it was an exciting experience. The show opened with a bang featuring a performance by Rich the Kid rapping his hit song ‘New Freezer’ which has recently had social media in a frenzy followed by an opening walk from a Philipp Plein text logo emblazoned robot alongside Victoria’s Secret model Irina Shayk.
The designer took a sporty chic approach this season introducing luxury ski trip attire including ombré fur coats, knee high fur boots, floor length metallic puffer coats, and men’s shearling jackets to name few. The looks were accessorized with crystal embellished ski googles and bags. Winter skiwear was taken to another level.
There was a bit of ’60s inspiration with bold voluminous bump hairstyles in an array of colors on the snow adorned runway.
A lot of diversity was seen throughout the runway including a model wearing her hijab, a man running with prosthetic legs, and multiple ethnicities. Christian Combs , Cordell C. Broadus and Jerrika Karlae were amongst some of the celeb models who slayed their respective looks.
Like previous seasons, there were skulls and a flash of the Playboy logo on some of the clothes. However, Philipp Plein’s name was embellished on most of the lust worthy gear.
The show closed with a shift in clothing from sporty to dapper as a few men hit the runway in tailored suits and chic winter jackets.
The Plein experience is always an entertaining one. For the finale, the models danced under the huge ‘PP’ spaceship housed in the middle of the space while Migos closed the show with their mega hit ‘Motorsport.’ The trio ended the show in true Philipp Plein fashion and the after party commenced. Epic!
