Made it to Antwerp on a wednesday noon to see the brand new Filippa K for the approaching sun lit season. The whole collection does justice to what FK is in its essence - the cleanest cut scandinavian basics executed at the top of the minimalist game. Even though it seems like, if played wisely, there is something perfect for any given moment... day and night. The solitude of neutral hues provides for great layering options, causing my fixation on a navy bomber to evolve into a paired up duo with an ice-cream coloured sweatshirt and a pair of leggings. This is probably the first time I am openly ok with the aforementioned type of bottoms, as ordinarily anything resembling tights and worn with a sweater is a big 'no-no' for me. FK did a pair of suede-ish tight-ies so close to skinny jeans and so soft that you could possibly spend hours on a plane wearing these and probably still feel alright by the end of the day. Plus there is just enough ankle exposure with these to make things interesting. Sportswear bra tops seemed even more appealing and I even considered adding up to my styling equation. Although worn on its own with anything high waisted would do just fine. But my favourite of all, if I ever had to choose, would be a classic leather backpack from their mens line. I love the idea of being able to add certain level of functionality and cool, without having to commit to anything baggy and disproportionately oversized. Cannot get it out of my head.
You can see the collection in more detail over here.
