Philipp Plein – Milan Men’s FW 2014-15

By  |  0 Comments

Ladies your stallions are waiting and strutting their stuff in the Philipp Plein collection in Milan. The show starts off with two cowboys on horses involved in a gunfight. Then the show’s ponies start walking down the runway wearing everyday cowboy attire that includes leather pants, jackets and the Stetson hat which itself is a cowboy staple. Each model had some form of leather by wearing leather pants or jacket and if neither of those occurred then they were holding a leather saddle. Most of the collection was black with varied fabrics and designs. A major staple in the styles was crocodile and snake skin leathers where they were used in variations of black motorcycle jackets with the suede version having an asymmetrical zipper, and the black leather version having four crocodile zippered utility patch pocket sections stitched onto the jacket. Showing that even when using the same color you can have contrast with materials and designs.

Another variation of the western cowboy look was the black quilted leather overcoat with a red plaid inner collar and a fur outer collar. A cowboy isn’t a cowboy though without a pair of jeans. Distressed, torn, or faded, the jeans are what made the collection work as well. Imagine a cowboy with sweatpants, there isn’t one around because they all are wearing either jeans or leather pants. Finally adding some style and flare to the western cowboy theme and look we saw a collection of single button blazers with besom pockets and contrasting lapels. One was a satin lapel, while another pair of lapels had a reptilian skin design. However the most noticeable piece was a black blazer with satin besom pockets with the entire blazer having an onyx gem contrasting outline. If that isn’t enough, the stitched skull and crossbones logo under the right pocket tells everyone that it’s a wild west out there. That was also very evident by the duel to close out the show.

“The clothes do make the man.” How you’re dressed is the first thing someone notices and you only get one first impression, so why not make it great always? My interests are men’s fashion and lifestyle.
