Bridging The Gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces
Filling Pieces celebrates their first decade by presenting the film Bridging The Gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces. Made in collaboration with Vice, the documentary shows an exclusive insight into the trials and tribulations of Creative Director Guillaume Philibert’s brand from Amsterdam.
In 10 years of existence, Filling Pieces grew from one single shoe to an international fashion brand with full footwear, clothing and accessories collections. At the intersection of high-end fashion and streetwear, Filling Pieces bridged the gap between different worlds and cultures within fashion and beyond. Bridging The Gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces retroactively follows Guillaume Philibert and his colleagues on this journey. From the first steps within the fast-moving world of fashion until the moment Philibert, as the founder and creative director, is standing at a unique crossroads for himself and the company.
Filmed over the course of one year, the documentary is made in collaboration with Vice and directed by Joey Boink. It features critical figures behind the brand, such as Philibert’s friends and family, and prominent figures in the international fashion industry such as Daily Paper’s Hussein Suleiman, Pyer Moss’s Kerby Jean-Raymond and Highsnobiety’s David Fischer.
Next to the release of their documentary, Filling Pieces will also be opening their new flagship store in the centre of Amsterdam in July. With 300 square meters, this is their biggest store to date. The flagship store will not only exhibit and sell their collections but will also be a place of gathering for community creatives and entrepreneurs, where themes such as inclusivity, mental health, music, sport, and art will be discussed during exclusive panels and workshops.
Bridging The Gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces will premiere online on the Filling Pieces website on the 30th of April at 21:00 CEST.
