Its colourful aesthetic and technical approach to knitwear has made it a favourite amongst Kate Hudson, Gemma Chan, countless content creators and now Canadian megabrand, SSENSE. While the Spring 2022 collection is the first to be available through the luxury retailer, expect to see many new whimsical wares coming soon.
Sweden’s Filippa K adds the Billie Sweater to its sustainable wool initiative
In 2019, Filippa K launched the Swedish Wool Initiative, a unique capsule of organic knitwear whose wool was sourced from a small sheep farm in the designer’s home country and is a byproduct of the local meat industry. This week, the brand unveiled the fourth iteration of this project, the Billie Sweater. Like its predecessors, its colour was achieved through a traditional natural dyeing method, and only 100 will be available to purchase. Our advice? Act fast as we suspect this cozy wardrobe staple will be gone very soon.
