RUNWAY: Philipp Plein FW17As if Philipp Plein didn't have enough to do - he showed two different collections during Milan Fashion Week - now he jumps across the Atlantic to show his eponymous collection in New York. The collection is diametrically different from that of the other European who jumped across the pond to show their eponymous collection this season. Plein's FW17 collection offered American iconography, splashed between cross and bones and a goth-like aesthetic. At its core, the collection was every bit as Italian gaudy and maximalist as his previous collections: fur, alligator, and patent leather everywhere; this time, with celebrities like Madonna looking on. Unlike these exotic skins and hyper-expensive fabrics, the collection, which aimed to pay homage to the city and country it was showing in, felt inauthentic.
