On this episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Guillaume Philibert, founder of Filling Pieces. He founded his brand ten years ago when he was just 19, and since then has expanded his business from sneakers to a full apparel line.
Guillaume rolled up to the studio smelling like a straight vacation, and it’s because he was on the island of Mustique celebrating KITH’s latest collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger alongside Ronnie Fieg and a crew of certified clout-havers.
We talk to Guillaume about how he ran his brand for ten years, the lessons he learned along the way, and the importance of putting in work overtime. He stresses there’s no such thing as overnight success—unless of course you’re Lil Nas X, which is why we also discuss the artist’s new Wrangler collab.
Then we listen to voicemails from The Dropcast Hotline, where we had listeners ask questions about what it takes to build a brand today. Guillaume drops some great advice anyone can learn from.
And don’t forget, for a chance to end up on a future episode, call The Dropcast Hotline at 833-HIGHSNOB (833-444-4766). We’ll see you next week and thanks for the support!
