Drawing inspirations from 1930's Deauville, la garconne icons like Coco Chanel, and vintage French Elle magazine's from the 80's, Filippa K has crafted a women's spring/summer collection that is both classical and strong. Traditional French classics (stripes found on working class boaters and fisherman and bright jewel tones inspired by the sea) are found throughout the nautical-inspired collection.
Structured shoulders, tuxedo-style blazers, and summer peacoats are paired with canary yellow knits, royal blue cotton shorts and candy pink silks. They add a balance of meticulous, masculine tailoring and the lightness/softness of femininity (something Coco Chanel had mastered that influences women in the art of dressing well to this day).
Here is just a taste of what is to come at our shop for Spring/Summer 2010:
