PHILIPP PLEIN MEN AUTUMN/WINTER 2015/16 COLLECTION

 

#PLEINWARRIORS

Philipp Plein Autumn/Winter 2015/16 Men’s collection mirrors the adrenaline-fueled aesthetic of the challenges that men face nowadays. The main colors are black and white, army green, bordeaux and grey. Proportions and cuts are revolutionized while volumes of exotic skins become collection staples as never before.  This represents a turning point for the fashion House, towards an uncompromising modernity, a #pleinwarriors style.

 

The urban match, the battle and  concept of the boxing ring are represented through details borrowed from the world of sports and aviation. A mix of powerful inspirations that translate into an aggressive and extremely refined menswear collection.

 

Baseball jerseys and the wardrobe of underground athletes from  boxing gyms to improvised street arenas transform into symbols of strength and luxury; oversize T-shirts realized entirely  in crocodile or python, running pants reconstructed in kid glove-like leather  and  over the top python jumpsuits. 

 

The  bomber jacket, one of the most relevant symbols of the pioneers of aviation, is revised into a high-volume version. Classic lining goes external while  fur is double-faced and features a play of contrasting volumes and colors.

 

Knitwear shows a rough face; a combination of military style in blatant contrast with  extra soft leathers is seen throughout the entire collection. 3D geometric elements and logo graphics featuring the image of a ferocious panther decorate jackets and T-shirts together with gothic characters.

 

Accessories plainly underline  the strength of the collection. Helmets, kneepads, ergonomic paddings are offered in python and leather. Steam-punk sneakers feature led-lighted soles.
