Glamour is now Plein to see

As opening parties go, the Philipp Plein inaugural bash had enough bling and star power to power a city. The extravaganza was sparked off with a touch of Feng shui with a megawatt lion dance performance that set the mood for the evening. And then the party just spiralled up to a crescendo.

As for the interior of the boutique—it is dialled up in the very image of the designer himself as well as his eponymous line. There was glitter and glamour everywhere, from the Murano glass chandeliors to the marble flooring.

A large shimmering crystal skull greeted the guests into the dedicated women’s and men’s sections, spread out over two levels—with separate entrances for each to give guests a taste of things to come from the bold designer.

Adding to the shine was the local and regional glitterati. Actress Fiona Xie and Korean singer superstar DJ Kim Hyoyeon were among the guests. The tunes at the boutique were spun out by DJ Jade Rasif who passed the musical baton on to DJ Hyo for the after-party at Cé La Vi.

Of course, the centre of attraction was the designer Philip Plein himself, at home amidst the glamour, posing for pictures here, chatting with guests there—he seemed to be everywhere, just like his collections!
