Philipp Plein Runway Show For Milan Fashion Week Featured Models, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tyga Wearing Kobe Bryant/Plein Jerseys With Gold Helicopters in Background; Receives Immediate Backlash on Social Media

Tomorrow is the memorial service of Kobe and Gianna Bryant as fans worldwide continue to mourn the losses of amazing human beings. This will take place at the STAPLES Center where Kobe spent all 20 of his NBA seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers an won five championships. A private funeral was held for friends and family members earlier this month.

This week was also Milan Fashion Week and Philipp Plein had its fashion show and displayed something disgusting in the eyes of Kobe fans last night. They attempted a tribute that featured Jada Pinkett Smith and Tyga along with models that sported Lakers-colored jerseys in the form of tank tops and sweatshirts that displayed “Plein” on it. In the background, two gold helicopters were displayed and a helicopter is what killed Kobe and Gianna.

Fans took to Twitter to voice their displeasure on the fashion show and nobody should blame them at all. High-end designers continue to not think much when it comes to these type of things. They often come out with products that are racist/insensitive. This Philipp Plein incident also took place in the country that Kobe was born in.

Plein is now saying that the jerseys’ proceeds will go to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation. The tank top edition is on sale for $2,070 and the sweatshirt is $3,150. Check out reactions to these Kobe/Plein jerseys and the helicopter by Philipp Plein at Milan Fashion Week.
