A Brief History of Philipp Plein

Despite having no background in the fashion industry, Philipp Plein has become one of the most influential names in contemporary fashion. Best known for his opulent and extravagant fashion shows, the philosophy behind the brand is certainly ‘more is more’. Plein does not believe in doing anything without fanfare and is determined to gain attention for his brand in the most unrestrained ways.

Philipp Plein was born in Munich. He was on the path to becoming a lawyer when he left school to pursue a career in fashion. An initial investment from his father, a heart surgeon, was the thing that started the brand that exists today. Plein began his foray into the world of fashion by making luxury dog beds. This quickly led to the design and manufacture of luxury designer furniture.

Plein’s work was spotted by the famous champagne brand Moet and Chandon. The brand requested that he create an installation in 2003 and in exchange, Plein could promote his furniture at the event. In order to best advertise the array of leather and colours he could offer for the furniture, Plein created handbags as unique and playful swatches. Many people at the event requested to purchase these bags, leading Plein to realise that his design talent could extend far beyond furniture. He went on to create one of his most iconic products: crystal-set vintage military jackets. This product spread his name far and wide, allowing the Philipp Plein brand to be born.
