FILIPPA K EXPLORES THE FEELING OF FREEDOM IN ITS AUTUMN/WINTER 2023 COLLECTION
For this new collection, Liisa Kessler, the Creative Director of Filippa K, found her inspiration in The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner, Werner Herzog’s 1974 documentary.
The film, about the famous ski jumper Walter Steiner, explores the feeling of solitude and the lightness of being able to escape the daily grind of life by jumping into the air.
“When the world feels heavy and complicated, I guess we want to be able to take off to a lighter state of mind,” explains Kessler.
Steiner’s lean and singular silhouette also serves as an aesthetic for the collection, taking inspiration from the ski jumping suits of the 1970s.
The collection is balanced through its use of transparent layers, as airy, crushed fabrics and a glacial palette emphasise lightness and movement.
