How do you show time? Not as the passing of days, weeks, years – but as a feeling.

For Spring/Summer 2024, Filippa K places her collection in a borderland, with the brand’s past and future dissolving into a single, distinct yet elusive sensibility. Fundamental to this is the idea of ​​soft Scandinavian summer light, which gives a warm, faded touch to both the collection and the accompanying backdrop on the catwalk.

30th anniversary
This collection comes at a time when Filippa K celebrates his 30th birthday. Drawing from the house’s rich archive, the collection celebrates the history and work of founder Filippa Knutsson , but also underlines the evolution at the hands of former creative director Liisa Kessler , who continues to use the house’s minimalist instincts to to give it a warm appearance.

To capture this spirit, the SS24 collection embraces archival fabrics, silhouettes and details. This includes the reintroduction of shirts and polos in plain and striped jersey – main pieces of Filippa K collections since the early 90s. These are complemented by high-button blazers in summery textured fabrics that exude a vaguely retro sensibility. Classic underwear styles continue to form the basis for seasonal knitwear, while bandeau silhouettes illustrate the house’s minimalist aesthetic.

The feeling of the past
Overdye and bleach treatments in a neutral palette are combined with new summer denim styles with a stripe motif, while SS24 also sees a reissue of an early Filippa K cult classic, in the form of stretch denim jeans without back pockets. The bleached washes on knitwear, which often feature classic lace details from the 90s, emphasize the sense of the past in the collection. Combined with beaded details with raw edges – another archival detail – these pieces look for ‘beauty’ in the way a garment ages and develops perceived imperfections. The recently introduced 93 monogram* is applied in a typically subtle Filippa K manner, embroidered on jersey and knitwear and embossed on denim styles .

The SS24 collection uses these references through the use of fabrics that radiate the ‘shine’ of the future. Trousers appear in raw linen with a metallic coating that gives it a vinyl-like sheen, while tanks and dresses come in a crinkled but soft steel-viscose blend, offering an almost industrial, tactile quality.

A new fabric: Re:sourced Crepe**
This season also sees the introduction of Re:sourced Crepe** , a new recycled, renewable fabric made from a combination of textile waste and wood cellulose, developed in collaboration with Södra, Lenzing and Riopele – three leading companies in sustainable textiles.

The evening wear: Feeling of ease
The sober, monochrome aesthetic of SS24’s evening wear creates the characteristic Filippa K feeling of ease within the collection. Relaxed tuxedo suits, easy-to-wear slip and bandeau dresses and a men’s suit in cotton silk with a subtle sheen are examples of evening wear that doesn’t feel restrictive, but rather gives the wearer a sense of relaxed confidence.

The SS24 accessories
Details in the accessory range also play a role in defining the visual signature of the SS24 collection – in particular an exaggerated buckle detail, applied to the new 93 Buckle Bag. The crocheted bags with bamboo handles evoke memories of the youth of the 90s and homemade creations. The house also continues to evolve its eyewear offering, through an interpretation of a classic aviator shape, filtered through a ’90s lens.

The collection’s signature buckle detail has also been applied to footwear. The stiffer shape is complemented by styles with frayed fabric edges and a loose bow. This season also continues Filippa K’s collaboration with Swedish Hasbeens , introducing a heeled version of the clog styles that debuted in June.

Filippa KX RAV by Sweden
For the SS24 jewelry line, Filippa K has collaborated with Skåne- based jeweler RAV by Sweden . RAV specializes in handmade jewelry with unique amber stones that have washed up on the shores of southern Sweden after being shaped by nature over millions of years. Their organic form has been left largely untouched, except that they have been polished to emphasize their rich hues, before being incorporated into necklaces, earrings, belly chains and bracelets. In this way, our natural past is brought into the present, refracted through the 90s lens of Filippa K, to convey a sense of time – not as something strict or similar to a certain time, but as the expression of a feeling.

The collection will be launched in different drops. Drop 1 is now available online and in Filippa K stores.
