Philipp Plein Resort 2019 à Cannes

For his Resort 2019 collection, Philipp Plein once again opened the gates to his private palace on the Cote d’Azur, ‘La Jungle Du Roi’. At the entrance, on a wall of white roses, the word ‘PHILIPP PLEIN DYNASTY’ was framed by two giant ‘Ziggy Stardust’ lightning bolts – signaling an event charged with high-voltage power. The runway created in gold glitter was surrounded by the exotic garden’s palm and banana trees. The show began with David Bowie’s Rebel Rebel pounding through the speakers …

Inspired by the iconic 1980s TV drama Dynasty, this season the Plein woman exudes all the brazen attitude of Alexis Colby with an injection of glam-rock. Bright-coloured 70’s style hair and glitter nails, she is a force to be reckoned with: strong and sexy in sequin suits, palm-leaf embellished bombers and hoodies, studded denim mini-skirts, skin-tight leather trousers, carrying a transparent PVC bag and wearing metallic skull stilettoes.

Holding their own next to these goddesses, the men are equally bold. Whether bare-chested like Dynasty hunks or dressed in dollar-bill print shirts and suits, turquoise tailored python biker jackets, sequined shawl-collared tuxedos and embellished cowboy hats, these are fun-loving characters who also mean business.

Elsewhere, there is a new women’s focus on elegant, sophisticated eveningwear: a capsule collection of ultra-luxe gowns for exclusive red-carpet events. True to the rock’n’roll spirit of Philipp Plein, there are large leopard prints, python-style sequinning, a biker jacket ball gown along with flowing chiffon and lace bodices. From coiffured head to high-heeled toe, it’s a statement of strength and allure.

Reflecting the natural surroundings of the Plein villa, the collection also has a softer, more romantic side with floral patterns decorating denim dungarees, military-style jackets and silk flared trousers. Looser shapes and fuller volumes give a fluid, relaxed 70’s feel, revealing a quieter confidence.
