Biography

Philipp Plein is a German fashion designer and founder of the PHILIPP PLEIN International Group which includes the Philipp Plein, Plein Sport, and Billionaire brands.

Career

Plein was studying law when he began designing luxury dog beds. Soon his designs drew attention from experts within the interior design industry and in 1998, the company was founded in Munich, Germany.

Plein started making bags and accessories from the leftover exotic leathers, which were sold alongside his design pieces at trade fairs. In 2003 the entrepreneur was asked to design a lounge at the German trade fair CPD Düsseldorf, for Moët & Chandon, where he was also allowed to sell his accessories. The initial namesake casual fashion brand was born a year later in 2004, while the current Philipp Plein luxury ready to wear label was launched in 2008.

Plein is listed as one of the richest individual or family in Switzerland for 2019 by the business magazine Bilanz in their annual Die 300 Reichsten (Top 300 Richest) with a net worth of 300 million CHF.

Brand

Plein's first collections were vintage military jackets which he embroidered with Swarovski skulls and sold at the Maison et Objet in Paris

In 2006 the accessories line was introduced and in 2008 the "Couture" collection was launched.
