Philipp Plein’s New York Fashion Week Spectacle Had It All: Robots, Olympics, and Migos

If you couldn’t make it to the Olympics, Philipp Plein‘s Fall 2018 New York Fashion Week show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is where you might wish you could have been instead. The fluffy, fake snow-covered ground hinted that the audience was about to have a wintry experience, just before two snowmobiles revved up their engines to race around the arena and introduce a performance by Migos (sans Cardi B). Then, a humongous Philipp Plein space ship was lowered from the ceiling, and Irina Shayk touched down and emerged with her robotic techno-transformer of a partner, while a recording of Frank Sinatra crooning”Fly Me to the Moon” blasted for all to hear. That sound like a lot to process? Well, then came the models: Scions Myles O’Neal, son of Shaquille O’Neal, and Christian Combs, son of Diddy, and Cordell Broadus, son of Snoop Dogg, emerged from behind the spaceship carrying metallic and bejeweled skis, snowboards, masks, and goggles to complete their intergalactic aprè-ski looks. Go behind the scenes, here.
