Editorial

Philipp Plein’s models looked straight out of ‘Grease’ with a love of ‘Fast & Furious’-style racing. Greased hair complete with quiff, cigarette in the hand or behind one ear, T-shirts with rolled up sleeves worn with lots of chain necklaces, a rebellious, irreverent look – all the ingredients were there for a challenge with fire, like the flames reproduced on the bottoms of jeans and sporty trousers and on bomber sleeves in bold red that contrasted with black or denim blue. Another recurring motif was car racing prints (the clothes included a competition suit) and tigers and snakes applied in swarovski to shoulders, sleeves, front and back, but there were also studded biker jackets, patched denim jackets, sequinned bombers and blazers and shirts worn with a raised collar over a bare chest. The colours were mainly black, white and red.
