Philipp Plein pulled out all the stops for his namesake label’s fashion show at Milan Fashion Week. It had a spinning carousel. It had Fat Joe and Fergie. It had Paris Hilton as a guest model. It had a marching band. It even had an ice-cream truck.
The spring/summer 2017 collection, with metallic fabrics, chain embellishments was futuristic looking. Thigh-high gladiator sandals, torn denim and layered bling dominated the runway, creating looks that wouldn’t seem out of place in an sci-fi movie about intergalactic space warriors.
