A dedication to the extraordinary, a devotion to beauty and a passion for rock and roll are the strong character traits that have compelled Philipp Plein to give rise to a brand notorious for both unbridled luxury and edgy style. Philipp Plein was born in Munich in 1978 and educated in Switzerland and Germany.
His strong interest in art, architecture and foreign cultures was shaped early in life through the extensive travels with his family, providing exposure as a child to the world’s most important museums and cultural exhibits. In 1998 he entered the world of design by producing exclusive furnishings in steel and leather initially for family and friends, which soon became a full-time professional activity, demanding enough for Plein to abandon his law studies. His involvement in leather craftsmanship led him to experiment with leather garments and accessories, and finally to launch his own fashion brand in 2004. The company continued to grow and two major milestones were reached in 2008 with the opening of the first flagship store in Monte Carlo and the first commercial showroom in Milan. As the young, affluent consumer continued to discover this fresh unconventional brand, Philipp Plein concentrated on creating a world-class production network, thereby guaranteeing the unsurpassed level of luxury demanded by his discerning clientele. The market has applauded this insightful collection that combines young, rock and roll style with impeccable quality.
PHILIPP PLEIN designs unique creations, interpreting an extraordinary contemporary lifestyle. Based on the designer’s dynamism and positive spirit, this creed is the driving force that has made Philipp Plein’s eponymous label the successful international brand that it is today.
PHILIPP PLEIN collections are fun, provocative and always luxurious, with an attention to craftsmanship that is rarely matched within the industry. The PHILIPP PLEIN brand and lifestyle are a tribute to the passionate individualist who transforms their innermost desires into reality, who makes a daily promise to live their dreams."
