Marking the departure from their reputation as a footwear brand, Filling Pieces return to Paris with a virtual runway showcasing their first full collection. The 27-look presentation consists of eyewear, bags, accessories, small leather goods, apparel and of course, footwear.

Founder and creative director Guillaume Philibert commented that he is “beyond excited and extremely proud of the collection to be shown in Paris this week”, labelling it “The best to-date”. Without needing to access a show, consumers as well as buyers can visit the FP showroom and view the AW20 SPIRIT collection modelled by the likes of Nick Goulden, in the form of a pre-recorded runway beamed onto the walls.

The concept of SPIRIT as a theme stems from the belief in a fifth element bonding earth, fire, water and air. Spirit also represents the desire to understand the unspoken bonds that unite humanity. Each element is interpreted with a unique design direction throughout the collection. Continuing the theme, Filling Pieces have commissioned Makers Unite to produce several pieces for the RTW AW20 collection. The Amsterdam-based organisation nurtures the creative talent of refugees, helping them to integrate into society. A topic which resonates deeply with FP’s brand heritage.
