It all started with a vision.
About the brand
In 2009, Guillaume Philibert wanted to design a premium sneaker at a fair price point. This led to the birth of the Low Top. The first shoe to bridge the gap between streetwear and high fashion.
The Low Top became more than just a piece of footwear. It was a symbol of affordable, luxury design. A product that levelled the playing field. One that proved good design can unify.
A sneaker adopted by people of all sexes, races, religions, and sexualities. Today, the Low Top continues to be a symbol of a world united through the power of creativity, where boundaries between people have been erased. But we didn’t stop there.
Our offering has continued to evolve, adapting and expanding to now include more innovative footwear silhouettes and a full ready-to-wear collection complete with bags, accessories and eyewear.
The desire to challenge the status quo and inspire through sheer creativity has never left us. With this mission, Guillaume has continued to push boundaries in the realms of luxury streetwear for over 10 years. Navigating the traditional fashion industry in a way that encourages diversity, inclusivity and representation. Fostering an environment for young creative talent within Filling Pieces itself, and now also on Holland's Next Top Model 2022. Joining the team as a judge, alongside the talented Yolanda Hadid, Philippe Vogelenzang and Loiza Lamers - in search of the next top model within the Netherlands.

We believe in unity through diversity, using design as a language to create positive change.
At Filling Pieces we champion youth, independence, creativity, inquisitivity and ambition.
We aim for the highest standards, whilst nurturing young talent and further encouraging the personal growth of our employees. Through our global network of family and friends, we connect like-minded people with the goal to create a better world. Our shared vision of the world is one free from division. We believe that the differences between us as individuals, is what make us stronger collectively.
Filling Pieces encourages those who dare to show initiative and stray from the beaten path, because we believe that only by finding our own way beyond the boundaries set by society can we improve.
Our way of life allows us to experience joy every day, and we wish to share these beliefs with the world.
Bridging the gap.
We are not a traditional company. Our innovative approach is not only to be seen in our products, but also how we operate as a team. Celebrating a flat internal structure, Filling Pieces is a place where everyone has an equal say. We nurture talent and reward dedication.
We are young. We are ambitious. We are a team and we are family.
At the end of the day, the successes we have been able to celebrate as a brand are thanks to the team of talented individuals who have worked so hard to achieve them. The Faces of FP is a project dedicated to those who make our brand different, innovative, and diverse; the Filling Pieces family. Keeping it close to home, the analog portraits were shot in our satellite store by Corentin, a member of our PR team, and are accompanied by answers to the question “What does Filling Pieces mean to you?”.
