This is a brave combination of classics, mythology, and fashion by Philipp Plein. This painting brings out the extravagant and extremely sensual nature of Plein's fashion aesthetic. The Laocoön sculpture was set in the surreal context of Plein's universe. The background of the painting consists of purple flowers inspired by the designer's fashion motif. There are metallic decorations around the Laocoön, which refer to Plein's characteristic style, which often uses animal elements in his collections. This painting is a perfect combination of the past and the present, classic art and modernity, fashion and art. The presence of Philipp Plein himself at the event, where the work could be admired, only confirmed its uniqueness and impact.
