RUNWAY: Philipp Plein FW16There was a lot to digest at Philipp Plein: croc, skaters, superheroes, tailoring, and Lil' Wayne. Showmanship and an exaggerated lifestyle is what Philipp Plein offers, an amalgamation of everything Justin Bieber, whom Plein mentioned backstage, is known for and ofttimes abhorred for. After all the extravagance and superfluous influences, there actually lies some good clothes. They were mostly all-black from crocodile jackets to black fur to leather pants and black shirts. There was a strong emphasis on performance, think body hugging compression and functionality, ergo the extreme sport references. The disparate references could have been done without but when you're young, beautiful and talented, living life to the fullest without regard is what it's all about and probably no one understands that more in Milan than Plein.
