Filippa K was founded in 1993 and is today a leading Scandinavian fashion brand. The head office is situated in Stockholm, Sweden. With a holistic approach to business Filippa K is grounded in the energy of combining classic craftsmanship with modern knowledge. In the design, it can often be seen in the juxtaposition of tailoring and modern sportswear, each piece draped by designers in collaboration with seamstresses and pattern cutters. The offer consists of a womenswear line, a menswear line, shoes and accessories and in addition, the Soft Sport collection. Soft Sport was created with a need for refined activewear in mind. It’s a collection of luxe, functional and feminine garments for low intense training and travelling that completes the Filippa K offer.
