BY ARCHANA AITHAL ROSE
Driven by a fervor for rock ‘n roll, German designer Philipp Plein has long danced along the crossroads of cutting-edge and couture. Each season, the undeniable showman fuses avant-garde style with top-end luxury to create pieces that satiate a taste for the unexpected. His latest offering is a biker jacket that perfectly embodies that fusion. Crafted in tinted python skin with padded and quilted details, this expertly tailored piece employs plenty of metal zippered hardware and is finished with a saffian leather patch sewn onto the yoke. The jacket is lined with soft nappa leather and punctuated with a tonal shearling collar for an extra layer of warmth.
