Philipp Plein doesn’t do fashion week by halves. For the brand’s AW19 show, guests were gathered in fancy Midtown New York restaurant The Grill for a black tie, three-course meal to witness not one, but two collections: Billionaire, and Philipp Plein.
First: for Plein’s Billionaire collection: a lavish range of luxury menswear including croc and snakeskin jackets, velvet and paisley suits, and textured oversized bow ties, modelled by New York’s finest salt & pepper gentlemen (read: “daddys”).
The Philipp Plein range followed, starring neon plaid and turtlenecks, camo print, and studded statement belts. To round off the evening, Lil Pump took to the stage to perform (rumours of a Kanye West appearance proving false), bidding guests – which included Paris Hilton and Bella Thorne – farewell with their track “I Love It.”
