images-5 images-7

loving this new brand FILLES A PAPA, conceived and designed by two sisters: boundaries collapse between formal and casual wear, masculine and feminine, rough and refined. Sequins adorn utility shapes, while oversize styles are combined with skinnier fits. Rich in contrasts and influences, FILLES A PAPA’s clothes are energetic, smart and uninhibited. Day and night become one, while sartorial codes clash and blur, offering a new chemistry for modern girls.
FAP is an instinctive, honest and spontaneous brand. Created for girls who naturally ooze confidence, Carol and Sarah’s clothes are for the rebellious, the playful and the liberated. Finding their sources of inspiration within Punk and Rock’n’Roll culture, they have developed a wardrobe made out of strong and assertive looks, hovering between American sportswear and European chic. Their collections are a message of freedom and independence, worn with aplomb and fitting bodies closely. Debbie Harry’s cheekiness and Kim Gordon’s ageless glamor come to mind.
Graphic and structured at the same time, jackets have a slimming effect on the silhouette and legs are shown off in tight pants. Evening fabrics lose some of their drama in comfortable and fluid shapes, as easy to wear as a tee-shirt. Layered according to circumstances, and made for everyday life, Filles A Papa’s garments quickly become stylish friends. Refusing to take themselves too seriously, Carol and Sarah are having fun with fashion, celebrating its vitality and paradoxical nature.
