Notes from a Swedish stylist


As Filippa K launches the Not That Complicated campaign, Emma shows three ways of wearing her favorite Filippa K garment – one that she's pretty sure she will use for the rest of her days.

All garments from Filippa K.
On September 28 Filippa K launches a new campaign, Not That Complicated. It visualizes Filippa K’s design philosophy by exploring the idea that seven perfect pieces is all you need to create a versatile wardrobe. Seven timeless and wearable garments are styled into 18 looks (by our dear friend Columbine Smille).

In today’s complex world, simplicity is the purest form of luxury, and the Not That Complicated campaign stresses that a long lasting, beautiful and simple way of dressing is the essence of Filippa K.

I was very happy when Filippa k asked me to style one of my favourite Filippa K pieces in three different ways. The garment I chose is a navy blue silk shirt. I’ve had it for two years and I haven’t had to wash it a single time! I have only used my lavender water to spray it down and then aired it and steamed it. If I got a stain I have just spot cleaned it, this way the silk will last longer and not get tears.

I love this shirt because it’s so easy to style and translates great from day to night. It is a timeless design that with the right care I will wear for the rest of my life. For day I match it with jeans and for night with black tailored trousers, earrings and heels. One of my favourite looks this summer was the shirt with a Filippa k skirt and sandals. For fall I will change the sandals for suede boots.
