Based in Lugano, Switzerland, Philipp Plein is a namesake lifestyle brand that includes men’s and women’s apparel, children’s wear and accessories. A self-described “believer and dreamer,” Plein pours his heart and soul into every aspect of the company. The result is annual sales on the rise with steady double, even triple, digit growth each year. The Philipp Plein collections, primarily manufactured in Italy, are influenced by his personal experiences, tastes and desires that evolve constantly. They tell a story and Plein dips into the theme he chooses, like an actor preparing for a specific role. He is attentive to the needs of the client, who in his mind ultimately consecrates the success of a fashion brand.
