Roller-coaster highs and lows at Philipp Plein Fall/Winter 2015

Feb 26, 2015

Philipp Plein's Fall/Winter 2015 Women's collection was a fashion roller coaster -- literally.

The German designer built a striking fun fair ride structure in the 1920s Palazzo delle Scintille for his Milan runway show on Wednesday, with the fun-fair theme perfectly matching the collection's luxurious twist on exaggerated street style.

The amped-up glamorous vibe revolved around mink and fox fur basketball jerseys with python and crocodile inserts. Two-tone fur stoles and wild Mongolian Kidassia coats also featured heavily, with outer wear worn over geometric bandeau bras for a sporty look.

The color palette was slick -- mainly monochromatic black and white, with flashes of orange. The lines were also kept sharp, with couture capes, fitted dresses and python and crocodile jogging pants the order of the day.

Accessories were laden with attitude -- think flat black leather boots with straps and belts worn high.Wide-brimmed hats added width and a shot of old-school glamour to the overall aesthetic.

Swarovski Elements' 3D-effect multi-color "Crystallized" lent the collection a techno effect, and a diamond panther motif decorated each piece of the collection. Who needs the fun fair to get their adrenaline fix with shows like this?
