In many ways Filippa K epitomises Swedish design. Clean lines, muted tones, subtle details and sumptuous fabrics have been the backbone of Filippa Knutsson and Patrik Kihlborg’s brand since their debut collection in 1993. The Celine of the Swedish fashion scene, theirs is the effortless and uncomplicated aesthetic for which Scandinavian has become renowned.
For SS15 womenswear, Filippa K loosens up an otherwise strict colour palette of black, grey, navy and white, and intersperses warm beiges, powder pinks, emerald green and lemon yellows amongst a monochrome story. Rather than colour, the focus is on diversity of fabrics, with a draped suede coat featuring as a primary look.Proportion is key for Filippa K, with draped, pleated and folded details offering interesting, un-fussy silhouettes that will favour the androgynous. The generous proportions of AW14 have been refined, with belted waists nipping in voluminous coats and jumpers. Trousers are worn loose and languid, whilst skirts drape above the knee of to the middle of the calf. Mules and show-stealing pointed toe, lace-up brogues promise to be on every fashionable foot next Spring/Summer.
Brits, if you cooed over WHISTLES AW14 than you will be besotted with Filippa K.
