Dark romance coursed through Philipp Plein’s maximalist, sexed-up lineup for pre-fall. Hearts, roses, skulls and graffiti prints featuring declarations of love — motifs carried over from his spring 2016 collection — toughened up Plein’s ladylike minidresses and leather motorcycle jackets. Tight black viscose gowns were festooned with crystal embellishment, transparent mesh cutouts and leather accents. Nothing was subtle, but Plein exercised relative restraint with suiting.
