PHILOMÉN, the Budapest-based designer label was founded in 2018, and is committed to embracing a conscious, slow approach to fashion, sustainable eco-lifestyle decisions and timeless European design.
Effortless femininity, elegance and confidence are just a few of the qualities underlying Philomén’s carefully tailored swimwear, all while representing a niche mission: To create with love, respect and compassion for the Planet, our home. Inspired by the healing thermal baths of Budapest and its glistening waters, the label embodies the spirit of lightness and confidence. The label simultaneously supports initiatives that believe in a brighter, greener future – to make you feel great about wearing Philomén.
With a mindset focused on easy-to-wear, comfortable pieces and the freedom to grow with ease, Philomén’s carefree sophistication, but environmentally aware take on design, remains true to the values of the European label. Garments are designed and made in limited numbers, and produced locally in Budapest with ethical manufacturing. Using the luxurious Italian fabric composed of sustainable ECONYL® regenerated fibre, the label is creating endless opportunities to help keep the oceans clean, with every purchase made supporting the environment.
The label’s name – Philomén – has Ancient Greek origins, and simply means “to be loved”, with this being the message at the heart of the brand, giving you loveable items, and perfectly fitting pieces you’ll want to wear over and over again.
