Filling Pieces celebrates 10 year anniversary with exclusive documentary and opening of a brand new flagship store in Amsterdam

Filling Pieces celebrate their 10 year anniversary by opening their biggest flagship store and by releasing their very own documentary ‘Bridging the gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces’, which gives enlightening insights into the journey so far. The documentary is available as of today on Filling Pieces’ YouTube channel.
The Amsterdam-based fashion brand Filling Pieces will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary this month by launching a documentary called ‘Bridging the gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces’. The documentary gives exclusive insights into the journey of founder Guillaume Philibert and the brand, and tackles important social issues such as discrimination and mental health.
Bridging the gap: 10 Years of Filling Pieces, tells the story of creative director Guillaume Philibert Chin and the journey that got Filling Pieces to where it is now. What once started with the creation of the Low Top shoe during his Engineering studies, eventually resulted in Filling Pieces becoming a household name not only in the footwear industry but also in the international fashion industry. The documentary shows what values have been important to the brand over the past ten years. In the documentary we see his friends and family sharing their personal stories and how they experienced Guillaume as an entrepreneur, son, and husband. The documentary also tackles the relevant topics of navigating the brand through the current global crisis and dealing with mental health issues such as burnout and stress.

“I started designing my first shoe in 2009 in my parents’ garage in Heemskerk. Nice and luxurious shoes were extremely expensive at that time which is why my main goal was to bridge the gap between high-end fashion and streetwear. With my first model, the Low Top, I wanted to make luxury shows available to everyone. This mission has always been at the core of my company and of every decision and design I make. It’s absolutely amazing to look back on the past 10 years and see how far we’ve come but I also can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us!”. – Guillaume Philibert

Filling Pieces aims to spread values in which diversity is celebrated and different cultures enrich each other by combining different influences from fashion, culture, and design with one another. With his brand, Guillaume wants to contribute to positive change and redefine luxury by making it accessible and inclusive for everyone. Bridging the gap between different people, different cultures, different preferences, and different styles.
Next to the release of their documentary, Filling Pieces will also be opening their new flagship store in the centre of Amsterdam in July. With 300 square meters, this is their biggest store to date. The flagship store will not only exhibit and sell their collections but will also be a place of gathering for community creatives and entrepreneurs, where themes such as inclusivity, mental health, music, sport, and art will be discussed during exclusive panels and workshops.
The documentary will be available here tonight at 9PM CEST.
