Filippa K is also the first brand introducing Re:sourced Crepe – a new recycled and renewable material made from a combination of textile waste and wood cellulose.

How can you demonstrate time? Not as the passage of hours, days, or years, but rather as an emotion. The Filippa K collection is positioned in a transitional place for Spring/Summer 2024, fusing the brand's history and present into a singular, distinct, intangible sense. The concept of gentle Scandinavian summer light, which gives the collection and its runway background a warm, faded touch, is fundamental to this.
SPRING/SUMMER 2024 FILIPPA K look 6, a tailored coat with sharp shoulders in a cotton linen blend, with a custom jacquard beige and caramel striped pattern. Worn over an ivory cotton linen bandeau top with asymmetric buttoning inspired by historic Swedish bodice silhouettes, and 90s-inspired cotton briefs in taupe.
"In looking back at 30 years of Filippa K, we asked ourselves how we can show the meaning of time within a minimal collection. We explored how we could inject a feeling of soul and emotion into the clothing."
— Liisa Kessler, Creative Director
The launch of this collection coincides with Filippa K's 30th anniversary
As a result, it makes use of the extensive legacy of the brand, commemorating its beginnings and the contributions of its creator Filippa Knutsson while also highlighting its progress under the direction of Creative Director Liisa Kessler, who keeps the brand's minimalist instinct alive.
The SS24 collection draws inspiration from vintage materials, shapes, and details to express this essence. Included in this is the return of shirts and polos made of plain and striped jersey, which have been mainstays of Filippa K collections since the early 1990s.
High-buttoned blazers in textured summer fabrics with a hazy vintage aesthetic go well with them. Bandeau silhouettes are a perfect example of the house's minimalist approach, while traditional undergarment shapes continue to influence seasonal knitwear.
The newly introduced 93 monogram*, meanwhile, has been applied in a typically subtle Filippa K manner, embroidered on jersey and knitted items, as well as being embossed on denim styles.
The SS24 collection juxtaposes these references rooted in time with fabrics that carry the lustre of the future. Trousers appear in raw linen with a metallic coating that gives it a vinyl-like sheen, while tank tops and dresses have been rendered in a crinkled yet soft steel-viscose blend, offering an almost industrial, tactile quality.
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 together with Södra, Lenzing and Riopele – three leading companies in the field of sustainable textiles.
The pared-back, monochrome aesthetic of SS24’s eveningwear provides the signature Filippa K sense of effortlessness within the collection. Relaxed tuxedo suiting, easy to wear slip and bandeau dresses, and a men’s cotton-silk suit with a subtle sheen further exemplify eveningwear that doesn’t feel constricting, but instead allows the wearer to convey a feeling of laidback confidence. Details within the accessories range also play a role in establishing the SS24 collection’s visual handwriting– in particular an exaggerated buckle detail, applied to the new 93 Buckle Bag. Crochet bags with bamboo handles,
meanwhile, evoke memories of 90s youthfulness 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 styles. Its more rigid form is
complemented by styles that bear frayed fabric edges and a loose bow. This season also sees the continuation of Filippa K’s collaboration with Swedish Hasbeens, introducing a heeled version of the clog styles debuted this June. For the SS24 jewellery range, Filippa K has collaborated with Skåne-based jeweller RAV by Sweden. RAV specialises in handcrafted pieces featuring 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, save for being polished to emphasise their rich hues, before being incorporated into necklaces, earrings, belly-chains and arm cuffs. In doing so, our natural past is brought into the present day, refracted through the 90s lens of Filippa K, to convey a sense of time – not as something strict or linear, but as the expression of a feeling.
