A lesson in wardrobe essentials
Spotted in L'Officiel: a lesson in wardrobe essentials by Nina Bogstedt from Filippa K. We believe that ‘a good wardrobe starts with the right basics’ and that is why we agree with Filippa K’s head designer: investing in basics, is investing in a valuable wardrobe! Read the interview with this oh-so stylish woman here:
‘They themselves call it ‘staples’, which literally means essential . The Swedish fashion brand Filippa K boasts that their collections are full of these staples.’
What is a wardrobe essential?
'A garment that will become your favorite from you whole entire wardrobe, that can be combined in many different ways and that will withstand the test of time, in both design and quality.’
What basic should be in every woman’s wardrobe?
‘A great pair of jeans, a simple cotton top with just the right neckline, a soft white blouse in silk or cotton, a nice black blazer and a black dress.’
