New York/Amriswil, June 2013:“Street Couture” or when the fashion show extravaganza takes to the streets of the world and everyday life becomes truly extraordinary. A reportage of moments taken from ordinary everyday life and reinterpreted in real PHILIPP PLEIN style, with his own unique touch of irony, provocation and surprise. The most mundane actions and places are transformed into something spectacular and eccentric. Because everything in Philipp Plein’s style is taken to excess, while always remaining sophisticated.
This is the concept of the new A/W 2013/2014 campaign photographed in New York by the young Italian photographer Francesco Carrozzini.
Nine different urban situations, in some of the most recognisable locations in the Big Apple. Dancing in the dead of night on Fifth Avenue. Lining up in front of a “Photo Booth” occupied by ardent lovers. A woman steals the show from the masterpiece in an art gallery. A sex bomb in a laundromat, wearing only fine jewellery, accessories and ultrahigh heels, waiting for her dress to come out of the washing machine. And, in the heart of Manhattan, a woman dressed up for a big night out, pushing a vacuum cleaner.
The designer Philipp Plein plays a cameo role in the background of each photo, while ensuring that his new collection is always the true protagonist. Stunning clothes and accessories, where the excellence of Italian quality enhances the art of seduction, displaying the natural power of attraction exuded by those who want to please and be pleased, but above all who want to have fun doing whatever they want, living each day as it comes, to the fullest, without limits or inhibitions.
Thanks to her strong personality, the top model Chloe Norgaard interprets these new urban stories to perfection. Her unconventional beauty, emphasised by her signature Technicolor hair, represents the perfect incarnation of PHILIPP PLEIN style.
“For this new campaign I wanted to focus fully on a photographer like Francesco Carrozzini, who demonstrates extraordinary sensitivity and creativity,” says Philipp Plein. “This is why I enjoyed being featured in his pictures. It was fascinating to discover how I am seen by an artist like himself.”

Moscow/Amriswil, June 2013:All over the world the strong expansion of the PHILIPP PLEIN brand is clearly observable. With the new opening of PHILIPP PLEIN Moscow SEASONS the Swiss fashion- and lifestyle-brand makes another significant step, especially in Russia. Together with the newly opened store, the brand now operates four stores within Russia, three of them in Moscow. Globally, PHILIPP PLEIN is represented at the most important luxury and lifestyle locations and counts twenty-one brand stores.
To open its fourth store in Russia, no other location could better suit the brand than one of the most impressive shopping malls in Russia’s capital, Moscow SEASONS. Along with this top position, PHILIPP PLEIN Moscow SEASONS represents the contemporary and cosmopolitan luxury of the Swiss brand in every single detail. Each individual decorative touch has been chosen exclusively in order to enhance the brand’s image and creativity.
White and grey colours, symbolizing pure and essential aesthetic at its very best, find its unmistakeable liaison with rich, distinctive materials. Glossy and matte finishes compliment the spectacular contrast between light and shadow. Mirror-adorned panels reflect light and colour from the window which creates a dazzling visual effect and attracts passers-by to come into the store. Upon entering they are surrounded by a rare atmosphere of luxury that transmits a cosy feeling of space and caresses the senses.
This dynamic store concept has been realized in close collaboration with Milan’s AquiliAlberg architectural firm as for earlier projects of the brand. 150 sqm of space dedicated to PHILIPP PLEIN Women’s as well as the Men’s Collection. A new feature is the integrated department for accessories that focuses exclusively on these masterpieces of the collection. A separate succession of counters that reflects every perspective of shape, colour and material of the featured articles.
For the Men’s and Women’s collections, the interior design enforces the look & feel of the respective pieces by the chosen elements and colours. To exalt the femininity of the women's collection, pure white colour is used for wood panelling and marble adorned walls. By the installation of shelving in reflecting high gloss steel, the impression is even more intense. In contrast, to focus on male virility, slate grey and the burnished reflections of smoky crystal were utilized.
The space’s opulence is re-enforced by the suspended elements faceted like diamonds that symbolize the ironic and unconventional style of PHILIPP PLEIN. Two huge Murano glass chandeliers with myriads of light and the oversize skull studded with CrystallizedTM - Swarovski Elements presiding over the shop window leave a lasting, powerful impression of the brand that many now see as the leading player in new luxury: transgressive, extreme, but always very captivating.
With PHILIPP PLEIN Moscow SEASONS there are now twenty-one PHILIPP PLEIN flagship stores around the world. From Monte Carlo to Milan, from Moscow to Berlin and from Vienna to Saint-Tropez. Not to mention Forte dei Marmi, Düsseldorf, Marbella, Baku, St Petersburg and Seoul.

The accessories area is a succession of counters reflecting every perspective of shape, colour and material.
Suspended elements faceted like diamonds underscore the opulence of the space; a huge Murano glass chandelier with myriads of light and the oversize skull studded with CrystallizedTM - Swarovski Elements presiding over the shop window, symbolises the ironic and unconventional style of PHILIPP PLEIN.

PHILIPP PLEIN BOOM BOOM ROOM at Jimmy’z in Monte Carlo
Milan, 27 May 2013 - Last Saturday, during the Monaco Grand Prix, the night really heated up thanks to the highly sought-after and ultra-exclusive PHILIPP PLEIN Party to mark the opening of the legendary VIP Room at Jimmy’z, redesigned and decked out by the designer Philipp Plein in his strong, unique, provocative style. Everything in the room has been taken to excess, but with great sophistication.
Philipp Plein, together with the Swiss fashion house that bears his name, creates everything from clothing to accessories, from furnishings to toys for grown-up kids. The brand has established itself throughout the world, reinterpreting the aesthetic canons of street and underground culture in luxury terms. For continuously evolving design, free from limits, inhibitions and prejudices. The atmosphere of the VIP Room at the most famous club on the Côte d’Azur, renamed BOOM BOOM ROOM by PHILIPP PLEIN, is the very essence of this style and lifestyle.
This highly exclusive and deliberately dark space is packed with details and fittings that evoke the legendary clubs of the 1970s. The soft lighting shines through the large surrounding windows installed by Philipp Plein in place of traditional booths, allowing guests to observe their favorite stars within. Crocodile print leather covers the main wall, which features PHILIPP PLEIN’s customized logo for Jimmy’z, and acts as a backdrop to the cocoon-like environment. Precious marble for tabletops developed specifically for serving champagne in abundance, thanks to a special central sunken ice bucket, which guarantees just the right bottle temperature.
Steel, a real hallmark of the PHILIPP PLEIN Home Collection, is used in the framework of the circular seats, typical of 1970s clubs. Seats are updated with stunning crocodile print leather upholstery, also seen in the circular oversize sofa, along with other smaller sofas dotting the room. A huge mirror creates an illusion of space and reflects the party into infinity. Smack in the middle, the infamous oversize skull studded with CrystallizedTM Swarovski Elements, enclosed in a glass showcase, integral part of the PHILIPP PLEIN concept and present in all of the Swiss fashion house’s displays and flagship stores.
On Saturday night, the BOOM BOOM ROOM by PHILIPP PLEIN was christened by an exceptional hostess: the sensual Cassie, a world-famous pop star and dancer, and partner of the legendary Puff Daddy.
Grace Jones in the enchanted forest of PHILIPP PLEIN
Milan, 23 February 2013 – The young designer Philipp Plein invited Grace Jones, the queen of disco music , onto his catwalk. In a dreamy atmosphere of an enchanted forest, just like a fairy tale, fascinating and mysterious, the grand voice of Grace Jones echoed through the trees. Strong and magnetic like PHILIPP PLEIN’s new Fall/Winter 2013/2014 collection.
The live performance by the famous Jamaican singer, actress and model signalled the beginning of a parade of exquisite beauty, enveloped in a rare and magic atmosphere. In front of an international audience including celebrities, members of the fashion elite and a young dynamic jet set crowd.
A second live performance by Grace Jones at the much lauded PHILIPP PLEIN after party, right after the fashion show, featured a selection of the diva’s famous repertoire. This bewitching evening continued into the late hours with a dj set by Marcelo Burlon .
Like a fairy tale, the new PHILIPP PLEIN collection is bursting with the wonders of Italian-made luxury. Some of the highlights: a luxurious silver fox fur with crystal covered sleeves; The sheepskin coat with murmasky collar and cuffs over a long crepe tunic; Ultra glitter Cinderella pumps and maxi fringed shopping bags; the mermaid dress in cardinal red satin , cinched at the waist with a metallic snake ornamented belt; and a sexy evening dress in silk velvet with extra- long zipper, accentuating the sensuality of the “Cinderella “ slippers.
And just like a fairy tale with a happy ending, where love triumphs, the arrival of PHILIPP PLEIN’S bride. Sexy in her body hugging bright white dress, under a cape in jacquard knit, with white fox edging.
“Once upon a time there was a forest thick with as much love and beauty as could possibly be imagined. One day we discovered that our happy endings had been stolen from us. Welcome to our world” by Philipp Plein.
Paris, 18 January 2013 – “Regret Nothing”. An expression that can be interpreted to mean “no limits” or “no rules” in interior design. A way of thinking that Philipp Plein proudly applies to everything he does, without any regrets. He imposes his unmistakable, unique, unconventional and provocative style on his entire range, from clothing to accessories, from home furnishings to toys for adults and children alike, reinterpreting the aesthetic canons of underground cultures in extra-luxury terms. His is an unprejudiced and constantly evolving design.
Following the men’s fashion shows in Milan with PHILIPP PLEIN Homme and the children’s shows at Pitti Bimbo in Florence with PHILIPP PLEIN Petite, PHILIPP PLEIN is now in Paris to relaunch his Home Collection at “Maison & Objet” from 18 to 22 January 2012, marking an important return to his origins. In fact, the Swiss fashion house started out with a home furnishing collection in 1998. Since then, the PHILIPP PLEIN brand has been an unstoppable success, offering an eclectic style that fears no comparisons.
Featuring cosmopolitan influences, fine materials and details drawn from all PHILIPP PLEIN creations, the Home Collection represents the very essence of the brand. It deliberately breaks boundaries and is sometimes even over-the-top, but never dull, always taking things to the limit. It comprises upholstered furniture, chairs, tables, lights, household linen and furnishing fabrics, as well as guitars and skateboards with astonishing decoration elements, including razor-like sharp studs. There are also lots of toys, for adults and children alike, including a huge teddy bear embellished with CRYSTALLIZEDTM – Swarovski Elements, symbolic of the PHILIPP PLEIN Petite line, made in a limited edition of just 10, some of which can be found presiding over the children’s sections of the flagship stores in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Kitzbühel and Moscow.
In fact, play is an integral part of the designer’s work. It is with this spirit that the home furnishings from PHILIPP PLEIN combine seemingly opposite, irreconcilable materials and textures with no “regrets”. Plain and severe industrial-style steel is clad in soft nappa leather, fine ostrich and luxurious python; in lamps, the new LED lighting allows light to pass through the sturdy marble block base. There are no rules, except gratifying one’s living space with expressive codes that refer to languages of pure, unhindered creativity: rock, punk and hip hop, re-interpreted and introduced to the world of luxury and finery.
The following items will be making their debut in Paris: a large table with structure made entirely of steel, featuring the laser-cut motto on the top: REGRET NOTHING. A desk covered in crocodile print leather with legs and edges embellished with silver laminated python applications, paired with the new version of the “Jet Seat” chair, with crocodile-effect leather body and inserts in silver python wound around the chrome-plated steel base, simulating sinuous snakelike movement. The same python applications feature on the steel table lamp. Lastly, the bed with its steel structure and rich crocodile skin cover, designed to be strewn with mink and hand-embroidered silk cushions, large and small.
All the home furnishings are made by hand and, on request, can be customised and adapted to suit the environment and atmosphere of their new home. This kind of customisation service is almost unique today, offered only by a very few companies, exploring a concept of contemporary luxury that verges upon the visionary. Every item is designed with quality in mind. Quality is what PHILIPP PLEIN is all about.
Florence, 18th January - Ride the wave of rock. Make rebellion your special talent. Break all conventions. Play at being grown-up whilst enjoying the fact of being young. This is the mood of the new PHILIPP PLEIN Petite collection for boys and girls aged 4 to 16, to be featured on the catwalk of the 76th Pitti Bimbo for the first time on Friday 18 January 2013. For next winter, the famous Swiss fashion house has created pieces and patterns bold and bright enough to melt the polar ice. Girls are dressed like mini space creatures. Dresses and cardigans in black and white lurex, with matching scarves, gloves and hats. Studs and crystals applied to form large skulls and butterflies on the back of trench coats and overcoats in total black and tartan cloth. Geometric leopard print motifs, stylised flowers and butterflies are featured on the mini dresses and tops in silk blend chiffon. Laminated down jackets and parkas in iridescent silver, denim jackets in bright gold to be worn over T-shirts in all-over mirror sequin embroidery and leggings decorated with crystals that form the double P symbol. Cardigans painted in pastel colours with hand sewn stones on the wrists, and super slim jeans embellished with studs and crystals that create small skulls on the back pockets. For the youngest girls too, there is no shortage of luxury articles, from patchwork fox furs to nappa leather and leopard effect pony jackets. Perfect for catwalk princesses! The boys’ collection is inspired by the great maritime tradition, with hip hop and neo punk aspects. Elegant mini suits made from stretch cool wool in blue, black, grey and ecru, to be worn with two-tone 100% cotton shirts trimmed with denim, perhaps under a trench coat or overcoat with leather lapels, martingale and oversize buttons featuring military-inspired coats of arms. To be combined with blazers featuring a large skull-shaped resin patch pressed onto the back, denim sleeves with black and white printed Popeye graphics or T-shirts with fun terrorist pets drawn on the chest. Look like a young heartbreaker in the denim jacket with leather sleeves and oversized snaps with exterior logo, to be worn over a piquet polo shirt with double two-tone collar, large wool scarves and jeans with studs applied to the back pockets. Luxury lined jackets in ultra-soft sheepskin. Carefully crafted little masterpieces that evoke the Homme collection mood. The sportswear pieces complete the look. Mini chenille tracksuits in pastel shades for her, in jersey fleece for him. All distinguished by the unmistakable skull symbol. Last but not least, shoes to suit every taste! For girls the collection includes ballet shoes covered in gold and silver crystals, sneakers in quilted fabric and leopard effect leather boots with oversize zip decorated with flowers. Boys, on the other hand, wear high top sneakers with a relief skull impressed on the upper, studded combat boots and warm winter boots with oversize zip and cosy sheepskin lining. For even its very youngest patrons, attention to detail and to the origin of each piece is an indispensable requirement for the Swiss fashion house, which has chosen to apply a small tricolour flag to each item, emphasising its authenticity and the high quality of strictly Italian production.
For this special debut on the catwalk, the message from the designer Philipp Plein is loud and clear: “Fashion is all about playing, having fun, being brave enough to experiment and not taking oneself too seriously. It is about making room for that freedom and carefreeness that we only enjoy in our dreams. For adults and children alike.”
Regret Nothing. Mess with the best, die like the rest!
THE SPECTACULAR LANDING OF A MILITARY HELICOPTER ON THE RUNWAY OF THE NEW PHILIPP PLEIN HOMME FALL/WINTER 2013/2014 COLLECTION.
An international audience including personalities from the world of fashion , sport and entertainment attended the show last night at Milan’s Teatro Alcione, transformed for the evening into an airport runway complete with a military helicopter, landing simulation, transporting PHILIPP PLEIN’S new fashion heroes.
Milano, 14 January 2013 – ONLY KILL FOR REAL LOVE by Philipp Plein. Teatro Alcione, 9pm, it all starts with a spectacular landing of a military helicopter on the catwalk transformed into an airport runway. A masterly simulation obtained through special effects of lighting, sound and music. Flowing out of the helicopter, surrounded by sensual pin up Bombers, a troop of hot, strong, brave young men. Champions of a true ideal, fight only for real love, and “Regret Nothing”, which is also the groove of a new style battle.
To prepare for the fashion war that awaits them, for next the next Fall/Winter 2013/2014 the PHILIPP PLEIN men are outfitted in the glorious military tailored tradition revisited through revolutionary Punk and Hip Hop cultures, and interpreted in an extra-luxurious key through the use of prized materials such as cashmere, snakeskin, deerskin and crocodile.
Terry Richardson, Lea T and Poppy Delevingne are the stars of the PHILIPP PLEIN Spring/ Summer 2013 campaign.
The famous American photographer once again shoots the Swiss maison's advertising campaign for Spring / Summer 2013. Featuring Richardson himself alongside two international top models.
A new Versailles. No longer lit up by candle light, but by ultra-modern neon lights that are reflected endlessly in a sophisticated mirroring effect. Contemporary wood-panelling. Two new leading ladies: top models Lea T and Poppy Delevingne. This is the subject of the new PHILIPP PLEIN Spring Summer 2013 campaign, shot for the second timeby the famous American photographer Terry Richardson.As "king of the gang", once again in this shoot, he has moved to the other side of the lens and become a star of the campaign himself.In fact, the slogan of the new work will be “Terry Richardson and the gang”, confirming the photographer's total artistic and personal identification with the spirit of the brand. For last season's campaign, FW 2012,Richardson made the surprise decision, for the first time in his career, to feature himself alongside the famous British actor and singer, Ed Westwick, celebrity testimonial of the Swiss maison.
The stars are Brazil's Lea T and British model, Poppy Delevingne. The former, a rebellious non-conformist, the latter, sophisticated and aristocratic. Sexy, as they are swathed in super figure-hugging nappa leather, ethereal, as they are caressed by light and airy lace and voile. Luxurious, in silk laden with opulent rococo prints.Their highly sensual and contrastingfemininity is emphasized by the appearance of two identical male twins in each shot, real toy boys playing their provocative and impertinent games. In pure PHILIPP PLEIN style.
The women depicted are strong and seductive, as dictated by the Swiss maison’s founder and designer himself for the new collection. A young noblewoman amuses herself by joining an aristocratically punk party, with a skillful mix of luxury and outrageousness, opulence and rigour. Irreverent and sensual scenes set in imaginary halls of the Court of Versailles, re-styled in the severity of black and white, with dark walls,illuminated by post-industrial neon white.
The campaign for the upcoming Spring/Summer season by PHILIPP PLEIN pays homage to the ostentation of a glorious epoch that now belongs to the past. But it is also a tribute to the contemporary woman, self-assured and decisive, who loves to amaze and surprise with continuous contrasts, skillfully blending severity and provocation, classic with modern, sensuality and strength.
"I am happy that my creations will again be interpreted with the artistic inspiration of an undisputed genius of contemporary photography like Terry Richardson,” said Philipp Plein. "The fact that he wanted to shoot self-portraits together with Lea T and Poppy Delevingne in these new images for Spring Summer 2013 makes me even prouder of my work. I hope that our combined energy, both Terry's and mine, and our idea of beauty will be appreciated by many, if not by all."
