ABOUT US

WHAT WE STAND FOR?

Filling Pieces is an Amsterdam-based fashion label with a strong core in luxury footwear. 


Founded in 2009 by Guillaume Philibert, the brand continues with the aim of bridging the gap between different worlds. Influenced by its melting pot of cultural roots, Filling Pieces believes in bringing together opposites and creating a world where talent and creativity can flourish.


What started out as one sneaker silhouette created to form a bridge between streetwear and high-end fashion segments, has now grown into a design label with an extended product portfolio of Ready-To-Wear and accessories. All products are carefully made - mostly in Portugal, with a high value on quality and craftsmanship. The brand's global distribution network exists of high-end boutiques, department stores and top-tier sneaker accounts which include Barneys New York, KITH, SSENSE, Selfridges, United Arrows & Sons, Mr Porter, and END. Clothing.


Having a strong and diverse cultural background and deeply-rooted connection to the worlds of art, architecture, music and sports, Filling Pieces champions its international community of like-minded people, with seasonal activations, showrooms, and experiences in London, Paris, New York and its hometown, Amsterdam.


Filling Pieces’ headquarters is home to a group of talented individuals with a multitude of ethnicities and backgrounds, which gives the brand its global outlook. The company also has a production office and development lab in Portugal. Within the next few years the brand's ambition is to open up physical retail locations in its key markets - London, New York, Paris and Amsterdam, whilst also expanding its e-commerce.

OUR HOME

A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

It makes a difference being based in an inspiring work environment. The Filling Pieces headquarters are centrally located on the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. The building we call home is a former bank, with money vaults on every floor act as a unique reminder of this. A masterpiece of architecture, you won't be able to help feeling inspired by the central spiral staircase, high ceilings and minimal interiors. On summer days during breaks the team likes to relax in the garden and play table tennis. A bar on the ground floor has been host to some infamous FP parties too, a perfect way to kick start your weekend!  


Design is only one half of our story. Our product is lovingly handcrafted by a family-owned atelier in Portugal. A wealth of experience has been handed down from generation to generation. Our new production facility is where all our new silhouettes and soles come to life, with a better climate than in Amsterdam!

HOW WE GREW

OUR FAMILY

In 2009, Guillaume Philibert - then an architectural student - founded the brand in the city of Amsterdam.


It began with the low top silhouette, a shoe designed to bridge the gap between streetwear and high end fashion worlds.


In 2014 Highsnobiety announced Filling Pieces as the 'best breaktrough brand of the year'. 


In 2016 Filling Pieces introduced it's Inner Circle' range - a highly exclusive and premium collection separate to the mainline. This is the brand's creative space where our designers are free to explore novel techniques, technical materials or new footwear and marketing concepts.
