Philipp Plein Spring 2018 menswear
Philipp Plein. And what’s so conflicting is that the very same thing that makes him so likeable is what make him so loathable.
Plein genuinely goes his own way. And even though that way absolutely isn’t my way—no way!—his personal blend of braggadocio and balls, plus a taste level so unabashedly trashy it’s almost genius, has seen him carve out a niche it is hard not to admire. Plus he’s an interesting guy to talk to.
