Now this is an Unlikely pairing…
Philipp Plein’s show at New York Fashion week was nothing short of legendary. Not only did Plein have Irina Shayk walking the runway for him, but he also transformed Brooklyn Navy into a site right out of Roswell.
To start with, Shayk was beamed onto the runway from a spaceship:
A spaceship which everyone danced under after the show:
But perhaps the best detail of all was when Shayk walked the runway hand in hand with a robot. And this wasn’t any robot. Looking like a Transformers cast member, the Plein-branded robot towered above Shayk, but somehow managed to gracefully take the runway. With a dusting of fake snow on the ground, the entire show was completely filmic.
Of his extravagant shows, Plein told the BBC, “A fashion show is a bit like a happy funeral. You work so hard for months on putting a show together, and then the moment you reveal the collection to the public, you’ve buried it, because then you have to start working on a new one.” But Plein’s latest, UFO – Inspired show, will be hard to forget.
One of Plein’s previous show was a major focal point back in September 2017, when model and singer Teyana Taylor stormed the runway. Taylor, who is probably best known for featuring Kayne West’s “Fade” music video, performed the most incredible dance routine on Plein’s runway, while Future performed live.
Still, Plein’s latest innovation, of including robots in his fashion shows, is likely to get the world even more excited about what the coveted designer will dare to create next.
