CULTURE DIET

Philipp Plein, Designer and Professional Mischief-Maker, Is Still Really Into Prison Break

Fresh from a collaboration with the graffiti artist Alec Monopoly, the German designer shares his culture diet.


Steven Klein

The German designer Philipp Plein is no stranger to spectacle: Among his recent runway shenanigans are tapping Paris Hilton to star in his controversially titled spring 2017 carnival extravaganza, Alice in Ghettoland, and taking his bow at men’s week in Milan by racing down the runway on a motorcycle. So it came as something as a surprise that, to debut his resort 2018 collection, Plein decided to simply stay at home, instead inviting the Cannes crowd to his nearby villa. Not that it was at all a staid affair: Hilton and a barefoot Winnie Harlow were just some of the models prowling the premises, known as La Jungle du Roi, with Harlow even falling victim to the spray can of Alec Monopoly, the L.A. graffiti artist Alec Monopoly whom Plein collaborated with this season, while making her rounds on the pool-surrounded runway. See what else Plein has been getting up to lately with his culture diet, here.
