German designer Philipp Plein shook up New York Fashion Week last night with an explosive Fall/Winter 2018 show that featured robots, rappers, snowmobiles, and a spaceship.

Notorious for his ultra-flashy runway productions, Plein transformed a palatial Brooklyn Navy Yard warehouse into a winter wonderland set in outer space. Fluffy fake snow trickled from the ceiling and covered the entirety of the floor space. A massive spaceship hovered in the center of the room and ejected beams of laser lights. The head of the runway was sealed by a bulbous metallic mountain that was later demolished by a fleet of snowmobiles – clearly the designer spared no expense.

A high-octane performance by Rich the Kid, Migos and others kicked off the event, followed by a bizarre promenade by Russian supermodel Irina Shayk and a Transformer (some guy in a robot costume) who made awkward spurts of dialogue asking front row guests if they were wearing Philipp Plein.

Of course, clothing came into the picture eventually; a series of furry, bedazzled and puffed-up skiwear accented by teddy bear backpacks, Playboy bunny logos and Swarovski-encrusted snowboards. The show concluded with a performance of “MotorSport” and “Bad and Boujee,” where the models and rappers broke out into dance and dabbed their way backstage.
