Every year we welcome a new fashion brand on the Indian turf and await the wonders that come with it. Better dressing, more options to choose from, and dear men, your style quotient ups a little more as German fashion brand Philipp Plein squirms its way on to the racks of The Collective stores. At a recent launch event in Mumbai, MH saw the full range of signature denims, jackets, t-shirts and accessories that have been sourced for the Indian folks. Pst, a little birdie also told us that most pieces brought to India are already pre-sold, so read up fast and get those credit cards out to shop, now’s the chance…
Signature Swarovski-embellished skulls took over our attention from the minute we entered the store’s section dedicated to the brand. We feasted our eyes on the tees, leather jackets, statement jeans, belts and sneakers - all sparkling with rebellious studs and true to their rock ‘n’ roll nature, oozing with edgy style and luxury. With customers looking for fashion-forward designs, it was about time that The Collective stocked up on Philipp Plein and added the multi-brand store to their plethora of high-end international brands. Select pieces from the latest mainstream menswear collection have found their spots on the racks at The Collective stores. The pieces of the current lot are sourced keeping in mind those who want to make an individualistic style statement by way of their clothes.
The Indian Market Is Ready For This Rebellion
We had a little chat with Amit Pande, Brand Head of The collective. He shed light on the increasing demand for the brand coming from regular customers, the fact that dressing up in edgy clothing is picking up as a trend across India, and more, and this time we were ready. He told Team MH, “We had been contemplating bringing the brand to India, before which we looked at various trends across the market. Customers had been asking for Philipp Plein and given the fact that most of the collection here was sold out even before it was displayed is testament to the fact that people are receptive to, and appreciate the brand’s attention to detail, the craftsmanship that goes in the leather items and everything else it stands for.”
Price And Availability
Brace yourselves. Expectedly, like all things high-end, international styles by Philipp Plein also come with a fancy-shmancy price tag. Belts start at ₹60,000, t-shirts from ₹55,000 and sneakers around ₹60,000. The bomber jackets will set you off by an upward of ₹2 lakhs but the swag that comes along, justifies your deep pockets and shining personality. Look forward to seeing women and kids wear on the racks soon too!
