• Philosofée, a contemporary fairy tale

by Delsy Espinoza

Philosofée was established in 2016 in New York by Brazilian designer Glaucia Stanganelli. Glaucia studied marketing and fashion in Sao Paulo and London, she has been in the industry for 16 years, previously working for Zandra Rhodes, Topshop and other independent brands before launching Philosofée’s well-edited capsule collections.

In London, Glaucia launched her first line Atomica - an alternative, colorful, and avant-garde collection - alongside other talented independent designers of the time. Her success brought Glaucia to Florianopólis, the “Hamptons of Brazil”, where she thrived as a personal stylist and custom made bridal designer. Philosofée was born during these years as a delightful mash up of the words “philosophy” and “fée” (fairy in French).

Tailor 2 Dress

In 2013, Glaucia decided to take continuing and professional studies in New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and three years later Philosofée was relaunched with a new mood and an evolved aesthetic.

Best known for structured cocktail and tailored dresses, Philosofée is dedicated to creating beautiful pieces that are functional, feminine and made with easy to care for high quality fabrics. Its silhouettes are timeless and tailored to flatter.

“I have a passion for class shapes, my signature designs have accentuated waistline and a playful attitude. In my collections, every piece has to be flattering, functional and versatile to attend to the modern woman who always on the move.”


The brand emphasizes sustainable and fair production and every Philosofée piece is made in the USA.

Discover Philosofée here, at Flying Solo NYC (434 W Broadway in SoHo) and at Wolf & Badger (32 Dover St, Mayfair, London) starting August 1st.
