‘When customers come into Fabiana Filippi flagship stores, they see themselves reflected in the very essence of our collections. This is because Fabiana Filippi shops have not been designed as mere showcases but rather as welcoming gathering places where customers feel at home. The flagship store in Rome is in a historic building on one of the most important luxury shopping streets in the capital and it is a prestigious showcase for the finest of Italian fashions. Some walls are covered in white panelling, which contrasts with grey elsewhere; white wood coffers cover the ceilings; the floor is in grigio d’oriente marble; the furniture is made of brushed brass; display counters of brass and glass are positioned over carpets with warm grey stripes. It’s a northern European design concept that interplays in a casually elegant way with fine 20th-century decorative art pieces, such as a nero marquina marble fireplace inspired by the architect Gio Ponti.
The autumn/winter 2017/18 Fabiana Filippi collection is marked by femininity, with crisp silhouettes and the finest and most captivating yarns and fabrics. Our customers can focus on soft coats and capes that drape easily over a silhouette. Oversized lines are combined with well-defined shapes, such as stirrup trousers and masculine-inspired tailored jackets in check patterns. These can be worn over shirts with a romantic, Victorian flare. The outerwear is extra-soft, in baby camel or alpaca or in new technical jacquards with fil coupé embellishments. A mix of natural materials is used for the trench coats. Yarns are blended with velvet, creating a sporty-chic relaxed look. The very roots of Fabiana Filippi are in the finest quality yarns and fabrics, which are expertly crafted with great attention to detail. We scrupulously control every phase of production.’
