A day before Vice President Joe Biden presented his report on gun control to President Obama is the day chosen by Philipp Plein to showcase his unbelievably tasteless Menswear Fall 2013 Fashion Show in Milan!
Just a month after the unspeakable tragedy that hit Sandy Hook Elementary School, this comes out on the runway under the designer’s mindblowing explanation: ‘a troop of hot, strong, brave young men. Champions of a true ideal, fight only for real love, and ”Regret Nothing”, which is also the groove of a new style battle.’. I join Fashionista in saying: come again?
First time I heard about Philipp Plein, was due to his association with the tabloids darling Mischa Barton. Then Lindsay Lohan followed and – must’ve been last year – I heard that the brand joined marketing hands with yet another controversial character – Uncle Terry. But this show is a new level, even for the Plein people! Clearly, for them, getting coverage with any means possible is more important than anything. More important than life itself.
Vogue’s Hurricane Sandy pictorial is soooo yesterday! (compared to this, it was just mildly offensive anyway!)
