Stockholm-based fashion designer Filippa Knutsson and her partner Patrik Kihlborg founded their contemporary clothing and footwear collection Filippa K in 1993, using Knutsson’s home as the company’s HQ. From the start, Filippa’s goal was to create the kind of fashion she felt was missing in the marketplace — uncomplicated yet modern basics to suit any occasion. The brand’s philosophy is based on three key concepts: style, simplicity and quality. Timeless silhouettes recast with a modern edge is the Filippa K signature aesthetic, which can be seen in everything from her jacket and parka designs for men to her chic jeans and shoes for women. Consider it fashion for modern urbanites who love understated sophistication and strong design.
Founded in 1993 by Filippa Knutsson and Patrik Kihlborg, Filippa K is a Stockholm-based label conceptually grounded in style, simplicity and quality. The minimalist urban elegance of the first collection received a lot of attention and became the foundation for the brand’s style over the years to come. Filippa K is distinctive fashion for modern urbanites “who possess personal integrity and an eye for good design. People who are confident enough to be sophisticated, yet curious enough to be fashionable.” Considered one of the leading brands in Scandinavia, the company has grown rapidly since its beginnings and today, has over 35 stores in Europe and is represented by 750 retailers word wide. With a loyal international following and features in top fashion press, Filippa K is an exciting addition to Gilt Groupe.
