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. 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, and the world of PHILIPP PLEIN is enjoying a phenomenal success today with corporate headquarters in Europe, North America and Asia, mono-brand stores, a strong rate of expansion, and currently a turnover of over three hundred million euro.
Philipp Plein lives by his creed of breaking rules and barriers, doing the unexpected and shaking people out of their complacence, while never ignoring the main objective of having fun and enjoying life.
