Antonia Larsson Pihl, born 94, is the Stockholm based fashion designer who graduated from Beckmans College of Design in 2018 and she is already endorsed by the celebrity scene of Sweden. She is well known for her edgy stage clothing and with her use of logos she makes sure there’s no doubt who the designer behind the creation is. Whether it comes to clothing or aquarelle paintings.
She takes her inspiration from the male dominated interests of hers--the world of sport mixed with a 90’s skate vibe and streetwear aesthetics. Her style is rough but the process is playful. Through the graphics and raw presentation you can often see a touch of humor or sarcasm in her work as she pushes boundaries for what it means to be feminine vs masculine. It’s this androgenous approach that has gained her international attention too. In 2019 Vogue.com recognized Phil’s gender-bending designs and posted that, “Pihl is an adrenaline addict on fashion’s fast track”. Pihl notes that throughout her work she loves to break down and play with macho culture and gender stereotypes to create work that truly breaks these molds.
Pihl combines fashion, art and graphic design. In 2016 she had her first solo art show and 2020 was the year for the next one, but due to the pandemic, she decided to postpone it until the situation is more stabilized. We don’t know much about the future, but one thing is clear: 2021 can expect to see a lot from this young creator.
"One thing’s for certain, Pihl will hit the ground running"
- Vogue, 2019
"Streetwear remains a heavily male-dominated sphere so it’s both refreshing and empowering to see a female designer focusing on slick, street-inspired pieces with a contemporary, high-end spin. We’re predicting big things for this young designer and frankly can’t wait to be able to shop her pieces"

"Antonia Larsson Pihl's take on techno-rave, club dressing was timely and convincing in her use of sport silhouettes and logos."
