PHILIPP PLEIN FW2014/15 Women’s collection fashion show kicks off as the stage lights up, a customized black matte Chevrolet El Camino appears at a vintage gas station. The car door opens and British actress/pop star Rita Ora descends, decked out in studs and cowboy hat gives a high voltage performance.
Legendary super model and international celebrity Naomi Campbell appears on the catwalk to introduce the new collection, Philipp Plein’s personal homage to the American Dream. A grand finale of fireworks that engulf the El Camino, followed by a huge explosion on the mega led screen mark the end of the show in grandiose Texan style.
“I visited Dallas with my family when I was fifteen, and was captivated by its pioneer spirit. Today America is my new frontier. I designed this collection looking west. Using precious fabrics and sophisticated skins like hand brushed, gold flecked python, not to mention strong denim pieces inspired by the American Dream.
I created ultra- feminine dresses adorned with tartan flounces and veils in contrast with voluptuous limited edition evening silhouettes embellished with delicate leather paillettes. Black & gold dominate the collection alternating with houndstooth, mink and chinchilla for dramatic effect.”
