His fashion sense and fearless attitude perfectly match the PHILIPP PLEIN mood and lifestyle. I am excited to see what we will come up with together.”
The deal was consummated by ONE Entertainment Managing Partner and CEO, Brent A. Johnson, JD, Floyd’s International Appearance and Brand Management lead based on the inspiration of seeing the two creative geniuses collaborate in Cannes at Philipp’s Gala Show this past May.
