Lindsay Lohan is the new face for Philipp Plein, commanding several great shots for the Spring/Summer campaign. (I love her eyebrows in these pics!) With PP's catch phrase that I strongly support, PLAY HARD!, and the fresh and edgy feel that emanates from the brand, Lindsay Lohan seems to be the perfect face for PP. Personally, what I usually say is, "Work hard. Play harder!" Philipp Plein is stroking my life philosophy!
And now for the fashion! I chose the below look from the Philipp Plein Fall/Winter 2012 show because I love it, of course.
|Philipp Plein FW 2012|
An aside: I denounce the use of genuine fur (I'm a convert), but I still appreciate the texture and feel, so I encourage wearing fine fauxs. Fine fauxs, not gross ones.
A bit about philosophy: "unleash the beast." So, what is the beast? The beast is, as Freud would put it, your most intense drives, pleasure-seeking behaviors, and completely unrestrained self. It's almost animalistic. Ultimately, it's free and it's about what feels good. And, well, you really can't argue with being free and feeling good. Indulge, be spontaneous, and unleash the beast! It's quite the message. This particularly resonates with me; a week before I explored the Philipp Plein site and found this, my friend and I were laughing about our releasing our inner beasts. I was quite enthused to see this!
|Glamrock Glove, $685 USD|
The Glamrock glove is one of my favorite items that is currently available for purchase. These are a wardrobe must for the accessory-addicted. Definitely extravagant, edgy, and classy, they are definitely a SugarSpiceStyle piece. On another note, I'm pining for fashion gloves to hit the runway. Please!!
|Philipp Plein: "The Heart is Every Detail"|
So why did I decide to highlight Philipp Plein? For Philipp Plein, fashion is not purely the aesthetic. It is an attitude, a way of being, a philosophy. It is for "fashionable individualists who are craving to make their inner desires become reality. Because life is too short to be insignificant." So, go ahead, let your inner beast sink its teeth into life...
