built on an attitude that invites rather than excludes
FILLING PIECES is a brand built on a vision of inclusivity, accessibility, and connection with a bonus detail: it won’t break your bank account.
In 2009, founder Guillaume Philibert was inspired by the vision to create a premium brand that was crafted with quality, but not outrageously priced. His intention birthed their timeless Low Top, becoming one of the first designs to bridge the gap between streetwear and high fashion, and since then the brand has consistently dropped styles that continue to blur the line.
Scroll for a few of their latest releases, but first read our exclusive Q&A with French designer Martin Sallieres on how his work for Filling Pieces opened new creative doors and inspired a fresh romance with leatherwork.
The Low Plain Court 683, Filling Pieces' most responsible shoe, is crafted from Dutch Organic Leather, which means it's colored using metal-free tanning. This pair was named after the additional cost of €6,83 to create the shoes with reduced environmental impact.
Buckle up for the brand’s first heel: the Carabiner nailed our first impression of this new style with a sleek black leather upper, lining, and sole complemented by a completely unique in-house designed carabiner heel ― if we could only bring one office supply to work, it’d be these.
Low Top Sky Citè
The OG got a makeover with this drop: the instantly recognizable silhouette that features signature heel padding and an elongated tongue is enhanced with a luxurious velvet upper, plus leather lining to tie the whole look together.
Low Top Crumb
Another fresh take on an instant classic. The recognizable elongated tongue and cushioning remain untouched, but this style gets remixed with the addition of a sleek & subtle two-tone, grained leather ― set on their sleek Fundamental Ripple sole.
Recently, the brand has released a workshop that offered an award to 1 of 10 participants from all kinds of backgrounds who best redesigned their SS20 Court. The idea was for the participants to explore a little more their creative side — and it worked.
