Despite some serious misjudgment regarding his runway show, Designer Philip Plein debuted his latest collection at Milan Week which ended with a blingy fashion homage to Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi, both of whom lost their lives along with seven others in a tragic helicopter accident on January 26th. Profits from the capsule collection will be donated to Mamba & Mambacita, Bryant’s charity.
