Philipp Plein “Little Monsters” Capsule Collection FW22/23
THE EVOLUTION OF CREATIVITY
Inspired by art, PHILIPP PLEIN gave rise to his new way of fusing contemporary art and his fashion essence.
A creativity manifesto that interprets the capsule collection with playful sophistication.
“Art has always been a great inspiring source for me and today I’m proud to celebrate and share this Art Gallery to open a new design chapter, where fashion meets art” stated Philipp Plein while welcoming guests in Via Burlamacchi.
For the very first time, the passion and creativity of the PHILIPP PLEIN brand take shape into art and become unique objects. As every form of art does change with times, Philipp Plein is introducing into a marble sculpture inspired by Gruppo del Laocoonte, a Men wearing a pair of PHILIPP PLEIN kicks. The ability to disrupt Art (by placing on a famous ancient sculpture, a playful twist) carries the unmistakable Plein signature where creativity has no limits and it can become a brilliant form of art.
Convinced that art is dynamic, the designer has also built highly innovative and contemporary sculptures of new fantasy characters, collectively called “LIL MONSTERS” and individually named LILBOO, LILCYCLOPS, LILDIABLO, LILGOZILLA, LILSHARK, LILSKULL.
Inspired by art, Philipp Plein gave rise to his new way of fusing contemporary art and his fashion essence. A creativity manifesto that interprets the capsule collection with playful sophistication where “Lil Monsters” appear printed or expertly sewn by hand. A key feature of today’s presentation is also the total black casting. Only black models have been selected for the catwalk, as a token of the longstanding commitment of Mr. Plein and of the Philipp Plein Group to inclusivity and to celebration of the black culture. A commitment which already took shape in 2013 when Philipp Plein was the first designer to feature an all-black casting, an all-black fashion show and an all-black advertising campaign.
