Inside the Filling Pieces Showroom in Paris

During our time in Paris, we were invited to visit the Filling Pieces Showroom, where the Dutch brand were showcasing their AW18 collection.

Located in the historic district of Le Marais, known for it’s maze of narrow, medieval streets lined with bars, patisseries and eateries, the glass-fronted showroom revealed itself in a small courtyard, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. Through the transparent façade the contemporary interior was striking, the white walls in the hallway contrasting both with the surrounding buildings (all well into their hundreds) and the slate styled kitchen and office space.

Once in, the Filling Pieces team leapt from their table to greet us all clad in matching, one off Filling Pieces clothing. Following a short chat and a much needed coffee we were ushered upstairs to view the art installation we’d heard so much about and were not disappointed. The piece referenced the themes the brand adopted when designing their AW18 collection, while offering a truly visceral experience. A group of miniature Icebergs sat on a shallow pool of water moving around freely as a nod to the natural world, which was the predominant inspiration for the collection. The gentle red light that protruded from behind the translucent sheet of icicles added to the atmosphere as we progressed through to the main showroom.

The footwear sat on an immaculately white elongated honeycomb shelving unit. The collection was exciting, introducing many new silhouettes to the range as well as a series of new, luxurious materials. The unisex range boasts clean lines and timeless shapes all constructed with meticulously with premium material to the usual Filling Pieces specifications. The footwear was every bit as much a part of the art of the space that was curated incredibly by the Filling Pieces team. It was a real spectacle from the brand, and a highlight of our time in Paris.
