Filippa K is a name to watch at the moment, the Swedish designer’s latest collection is at the forefront of the new minimalism. One of my favourite items are these soft grey leather lace ups. Somewhere between an ankle boots and a shoe (perhaps the men’s equivalent of a schboot?) they look very unassuming but the tinge of lilac in the grey gives them a refined je ne sais quoi. Filippa K has stores across Scandinavia, and is stocked in stores in the rest of the world.
