Philipp Plein Presents 'Alice in Ghettoland'
Ever wondered what an Alice in Wonderland and ghetto crossover would look like? Look no further than Philipp Plein's SS17 show in Milan, where pink flamingos, magic mushrooms, ice-cream trucks and a giant carousel all get mashed up together in a Tim Burton-esque mess that somehow works really well together. Plein calls this his "Ghettoland".
Needless to say, this show's set up was one of the biggest and craziest of all in Milan Fashion Week. It also marks Philipp Plein's last show in Milan since he'll start showing in New York instead next season.
Show set-up aside, there is no doubt that Plein wanted to end his Milanese chapter on a high note; his women are powerful, beautiful and in control of their lives. The epitome of street style couture, Plein's collection transforms boring everyday uniforms into interesting luxe interpretations, some bedazzled with embellishments and others complemented by heavy gold hardware.
Strange? Yes. Fashion? Double yes.
