After spotlighting two footwear options in its Fall/Winter 2019 collection, Filling Pieces has unveiled this season’s ready-to-wear styles for Spring/Summer 2020 centered around the theme of “family.” Within the collection, family is defined as “a bond between human beings that is based on spirit and mutual beliefs, rather than blood.” The SS20 editorial, shot by photographer Miftha Bahardeen, documents ready-to-wear designer Dieylane Cisse as he travels back home to Dakar, Senegal.

For the first time, Filling Pieces unveils its first-ever dress shoes alongside both formal and casual silhouettes that, like past collections, bridge the gap between streetwear and high fashion. The collection is designed around a set of fictional family members — each with their own distinct style — that challenge stereotypes and the status quo: the “CEO Mom,” “Worker Father,” “Rebel Cousin” and “Preppy Brother.” The “Waspy Dress Up,” assigned to the brother, is the first of these styles to be released for Spring/Summer 2020.

Elsewhere, relaxed acid-washed T-shirts and shorts contrast with matching blazers and trousers, and lightweight jackets and pants sport a solid striped pattern in a retro style. “Filling Pieces” brands the sports jackets in cursive script, while DNA graphics are printed on tees, emphasizing the collection’s familial focus.

Beginning April 7, the first drop of the Spring/Summer 2020 collection will go live on Filling Pieces’ website. The second drop will follow later this month.
