Filippa Knutsson is one of the two founders of Filippa K. Having been educated in London, Filippa Knutsson returned to her native Stockholm in the mid-80’s to work for the successful family-owned fashion company Gul& Blå, initially as a buyer and later as a product manager. After six years Filippa decided to start her own business designing clothes that she felt were simply missing in the marketplace – uncomplicated yet modern clothes to suit every occasion.
In 1993, Filippa Knutsson together with Patrik Kihlborg founded Filippa K. Designer Karin Segerblom who previously worked as a designer at Gul&Blå, also joined the company at an early stage. In its first year of trading, the three ran the design and business from home. Their entrepreneurial spirit together with a unique early design ambition, allowed the brand to grow very quickly. Today, Filippa K has developed from a ”kitchen table project” into one of Scandinavia’s most successful fashion company, with a strong position in the fashion market as leading in modern minimalism, high quality and long-lasting wearable design.
Today Filippa K is sold in 20 countries, has nearly 50 brand stores in Europe, 25 shop in shops, and is represented by more than 600 selected retailers worldwide. Filippa K’s head office is located in Stockholm.
