Billionaire Fall 2018 by Philipp Plein: Separating the Men from the Boys

MILAN, Jan 14, 2018/ – From St Moritz and Aspen to Kitzbuhel and Courchevel, this season the Billionaire man and his band of jet-set brothers are to be found high up in the mountains. As the sun sets over snowy peaks, they gather in an exclusive men’s club for an evening of apr├Ęs ski entertainment. Some fly in from a business meeting on their private helicopter and others come straight from a day on the slopes, but they all arrive dressed to stand out in the crowd.

Staged inside the William’s Le Roi nightclub – an intimate subterranean pleasure palace in the heart of Milan – the Autumn/Winter 2018 wardrobe takes made-in-Italy luxury menswear to another level.

Combining protection from the cold climate but never compromising on ultra-quality and style, daywear features thick-knit Norwegian-style jumpers, three-piece suits in heavy corduroy, a loose fit herringbone overcoat, puffer jackets made from shaved mink with cashmere lining, a bomber in white mink and fur-lined mountain boots equipped with metal hardware. Shirting is constructed from beautiful silks and decorated in micro-design geometric patterns and, for moments of sheer opulence, there are python trenches and bombers, and full-length overcoats in mink and silver fox. Triple-lens sunglasses add the perfect protection whether from snow glare or dancefloor lights.

Elsewhere, eveningwear is a lavish display showcasing a burgundy velvet evening jacket with quilted detailing, a striped two-way sequinned tailored jacket, shawl-collared cocktail jackets with gold frog-fasteners and completed by velvet slippers with gold embroidered chevron motifs. And, for the last word in louche after-dark loungewear, there are matching silk robes and pyjamas in exotic Kashmir prints.
