15th January 2019 | Milan
This winter Fashion week enriched its collection with billionaire’s finest fabrics and a stunning polo match that commemorated the event. The billionaire has also announced to sponsor Monte Carlo polo team, one of the strongest polo teams and the winner of three consecutive years of the 'Snow Polo World Cup' in St. Moritz.
Fashion has never restricted itself to a particular season. The toughest winter with relentless snow outside had a breathtaking spectacle that Philipp Plein blithely staged for their fashion week 2019 show with its Billionaire collection at the historic Palazzo del Senato in Milan at the Milan Fashion Week with the mercury hovering around the freezing mark. The guests gathered in the open courtyard to enjoy the sumptuous event that kicked off with something least expected. The fall/winter Billionaire collection (The brand that was founded by Flavio Briatore that passed 51% of its ownership to the designer Phillipp Plein in 2018), showed itself on a very sporty sporting scene that rebuilt its inauguration with a polo match at Palazzo Del Senato in rock time with lots of synthetic snow and elite spectators. A splendid event that also aims at enhancing the galloping growth of the brand. During the pre-spectacle, Phillipp Plein announce that Billionaire would be sponsoring the Monte Carlo Polo Team, that is one of the strongest polo teams in the world (it is also the winner for three consecutive years of the 'Snow Polo World Cup' in St. Moritz) and will be organizing the first 'International Polo Cup' in the Monegasque area. The Milan's courtyard, that was transformed to the wintry polo field, was draped with fake snow glazing all over the night relinquishing every visitor of the event and live ponies that dashed around the field. Thus the Fall / Winter collection is strongly inspired by the sporty elegance of the equestrian world. The polo teams played a four-minute game right before the fashion runway show began, with elite guests rapidly turning into ice sculptures under the freezing night sky with dazzling starlight watering the ground. Staged inside the William Le Roi nightclub in the intimate subterranean pleasure palace in the elegant heart of Milan- The Winter Fashion Week 2019 wardrobe Billionaire wear took fashion timeline to another level.
Billionaire took most of the opportunity of being a sponsor to the most outrageous polo team, i.e. Monte Carlo polo team and invited all its guests to learn the basic rules of a polo game while enjoying the polo parade of dashing suits, royal silk shirts and leather jackets, all effortlessly wrapped in the palette of warm winter shades. The participants and other members of the Monte Carlo Polo Team were dressed in helmets, saddles and riding boots all branded Billionaire demonstrated Polo, while Mr. Plutus arrived on his horseback, the royal enigmatic creator of the brand, who commemorated the beginning of the show. The mysterious creative director of the brand remains incognito with his principle of following clothes more than personality of the brand.
The collection reflects Billionaires desires to celebrate the playboys, fortune makers and all empire builders of this world decorated uniquely with fibers from Billionaire. Billionaire brand with its winter fashion week brings the most exotic collection manufactured in Italy, a new sensation to glamour and a traditional sartorial luxury of Billionaire's menswear. The collection was not just another man’s cup of tea. It required the elegant taste, and for that matter, an elegant bank accounts to fulfill the taste. An uncommon and unprecedented winter wardrobe that not just had an accolade of dreams but was resplendent with muted hues and smell of fabric loaded in silk and marshmallow. The collection included all crocodile varsity jackets, astrakhan macs, reversible shearling coats and an extraordinary selection of Seventies-style crocodile macs that was unsurpassingly as elegant as it was opulent. The old aged models disintegrated the age of their masculinity by wearing those tight fit trousers pairing with ill-fitting shoes and yet walking down the runway with the stunning look and confidence. True, Confidence is the new fashion! In case their uneven gait was due to something more serious, Monte Carlo’s many private clinics are the savior. The trousers are tucked into knee-high crocodile boots and in varsity jackets adorned with mink collars, cashmere blankets and decorated with the Billionaire crest are draped over every member’s shoulders. The brand aims at casting only mature models to create an influence manifested by extravagant collection, a parade of dashing men with silver hair and a filed mustard and peacock green colored suit with snakeskin leaping ornamented with silk shirts and rolled neck. The feeling is ineffable for the relaxation it renders recalling the old world sophistication.
Polo- the sport of kings a perfect supplement to the opulent luxury and unsurpassed glory of antecedents flowing over the centuries has fashion as its left hand. The Billionaire collection was inspired by equestrian and the collection did not lack equestrian influence in its vigor and detailing.
In brief, it’s just the collection to absolutely not play snow polo in. But to watch? More than enough!.
