Azealia Banks and a Roller Coaster Impress at the Phillip Plein Womenswear “Street Wear Couture” Collection
Fashion One invites you to join us as we take a look at the Phillip Plein show for autumn/winter 2015 shown at Milan Fashion Week. The collection is entitled “street style couture” and the spectacular runway show took place in front of a specially made working roller coaster!
Rapper Azealia Banks opened the show with a stunning performance wearing a Plein “warriors” luxe football shirt and light up soled sneakers. We spoke exclusively with the designer who says he wanted to make something recognizable and different, emphasizing the importance of originality and just being yourself before talking about the incredible roller coaster set which he considers to be a piece of art.
The collection featured cut out vinyl bodycon garments, leather trousers, snakeskin tops and dresses with fur coats and trim, reimagining staple street wear items like sports shirts and stadium jackets amongst super sexy split leg gowns and patent party dresses. Plein says he pays attention to the trends born on the street and watches the way young women style themselves and mix things together. Now these self same girls will surely want to throw some cool Phillip Plein pieces into that mix!
