Filippa K Pre-Spring-Summer 2023

The Filippa K man transitions into the new season inspired by personal and collective memories. Therefore, classic silhouettes see a resurgence with a fresh attitude and focus on effortless fashions. Kessler explains, “The starting point of the collection was to go back to Filippa K’s 90s beginnings, exploring the energy and emotions of those early days.”

Kessler reaffirms the brand ethos by revisiting Filippa K during the nineties and bringing the era forward with modern design. “By revisiting those garments, I rediscovered the timeless power they have to them,” recalls Kessler. “The feeling of comfort and the freedom of movement have always been at the core of the brand; it’s important to me to carry forward this heritage. I wanted the collection to feel easy to wear—light, fresh, uncomplicated, and effortless.”
