Philipp Plein Stages Raucous Resort Fashion Show at Cannes Estate

by Charles Manning

On Wednesday, Philipp Plein opened the gates of his private estate on the Cote d’ Azur for his brand’s 2019 resort fashion show. The theme was Dynasty meets David Bowie meets, well, Philipp Plein. In other words, it was all about giltz, glitter, and sex appeal.

Before the show, guests milled around in Plein’s lush garden, which included a literal champagne fountain.

The pre-show party was apparently so hoppin’ that moments before the main event, Plein himself felt compelled to run down the runway, imploring his guests to settle down and take their seats. “The models are walking here, move, move, move!” he shouted.

The collection included a capsule of luxe red carpet gowns, which, in stayed true to the rock’n’roll spirit of Philipp Plein, featured large leopard prints, python-style sequins, flesh-revealing panels, and even an off-the-shoulder biker jacket.

The collection also showcased a softer, more romantic side of Plein’s aesthetic, with floral patterns decorating denim dungarees, military-style jackets and silk flared trousers.

Looser shapes and fuller volumes also give some of the looks a more fluid and relaxed ’70s feel.

Check out the rest of the collection below.
