The Philipp Plein Resort '16 Collection gives emoji fashion a luxurious makeover. For his summer collection, the German designer fused his opulent aesthetic with iconic images.

With looks only the fashionably brave can wear, this collection offers a wide range of contemporary clothing. Fashion fans are introduced to digitized emoji motifs branded on rounded sleeve coats, leather biker jackets, bombers, mini dresses and more. The most impressive piece from this collection is a bedazzled mini dress that is riddled with various emojis, from the iconic heart-eyed smiley face to the shining star. Among the eccentric emoticons, a pair of squared-off Pac-Man pumps trigger nostalgia.

While this collection does showcase a variety of embellished looks, the Philipp Plein Resort '16 collection also offers less embellished styles and monochromatic clothing.
