The new Philipp Plein men’s collection for Spring Summer 2016 is inspired by the ” hip-rock” style. A combination of hip hop, heavy-metal, rock and rap. But most of all, a reinterpretation of the world of punk.
Dramatic opposites are combined in the same look to create a striking and ultra-modern outcome. Oversized t-shirts and extra skinny pants. Zippers and padded shoulders worn over classic knitwear. Details of the world of bikers with a quilted effects.
White, black and red are the main colors. Strong, divergent and primary, they dialogue as the slang of a rap song. Prints and embroideries bring heavy-metal band‘s ultra colorful and sharp writings from the 1990’s back into fashion: Gun’s and Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden. The hard and romantic aesthetic of their concert T-shirts relives according to the style of PHILIPP PLEIN. The same happens with PP78, the House’s logo with all the designer’s favorite hashtags and the ones created for the collection.
Studs and patchwork technique decorate every surface; rather than just details, they become true protagonists of the #PleinPunk male image. Hand-finished leather jackets carve out an extremely important space. With writings, designs or handmade airbrushing, they are customized as if they were created for a rock star.
Formal menswear is completely redesigned as a remix of the tradition of tailoring. Cotton suits are deconstructed offering a new skinny fit with slim black, studded or graffiti printed ties. The shoes are extra-luxury sneakers made with fine leathers and embellished with studs and customizations that make them as precious as unique pieces.
