You know ‘Filippa’ – the girl from school you might not recall at first but in fact her every ounce of detail is subconsciously filed your mind. Like how she never had to brush her hair after gym class or the way she did casual Fridays in a simple white t-shirt and a pair of slacks, and still looked better than the rest of us put together. She read dog-eared classic foreign novels during lunch and always ate an apple in the bus home. She’d smell of white soap, not the cheap, sugary, mall-bought perfume that comes in a turquoise bottle that all the girls bought over spring break. The boys all secretly admired her, teachers adored her; you may even have had a small crush on her too, although in your teenage daftness always looked up to the mean girl with one too many shades of eyeshadow past school regulation. Today, you want nothing more than to be a ‘Filippa’.

The Stockholm-based label Filippa K may not be a new player in the game, but one that I know I will keep returning to. I’d personally only recently encountered the brand on my trip to Brussels a few months back, and then saw a few pieces in Liberty, every time drawn by the same reason: the girl in the campaign – she was my ‘Filippa’, the Filippa K girl, when growing up. Effortless, natural and kind-seeming; one who wove her life around family and passion, with nothing but a handful of essential pieces in her wardrobe. Likewise, the brand is all about sustainability, fair-trade, and quality in garments. You have to agree that they have the most beautiful curation of basics.

This is to date, one of my favourite collaborations – shot in a beautiful Airbnb we were staying at over Copenhagen Fashion Week. It’s nothing close to the actual ‘Filippa’ but here’s me trying anyway.

  3. Love Filippa K, and I think indeed, here in Belgium it’s pretty well known compared to the UK. I bought my first Filippa K piece when I was about 17, I’m 28 now and I still wear those same trousers! Such great quality, and it fits your aesthetic so well! x

  4. Lovely post. Cant say I have ever heard of the label Flippa.

  51. Filippa sounds like a really awesome brand, vaguely heard of it, will have to explore more. Yeah, the current “us”, we all perhaps secretly want to be like her back in school even though we outwardly show that we would rather be the relatively “famous” one… the “old” us when we were young *_^

    I hope I am making sense! hahaha

    Love what the brand stands for and the philosophy. Thanks for sharing and Shini, don’t be too modest, am sure you are at par in portraying the brand as much as what the brand is all about and looks like!

    Have a great new week ahead *_^

  52. Hi Shini,
    Are you currently taking on any new clients?
    I’m about to launch a ‘concept’ skin cleansing collection. I’m a beauty therapist and skin health consultant.

    I’m also about to represent an international beauty brand and my website and social media all needs a massive make-over!

    If you are taking on new clients can you please let me know your rates?

    Kindest,
    Amy
