ABOUT

Hi, I'm Pris,

fashion journalist-columnist-copywriter turned designer turned Jackie-of-all-trades of Frederick & Sophie. I created Frederick & Sophie together with my husband, Markus. We built our family start-up while raising Indy, our slightly sarcastic, highly imaginative son.

I dreamt of an online “happy place” that fused our cosmopolitan lifestyle with a sense of awe and wonder. A place filled with products and stories that add joy to the everyday.

In 2013, my husband, Markus, and I, opened the doors to the Frederick & Sophie atelier. We had traveled the world to source a very rare Egyptian cotton yarn, had found the perfect fabric manufacturer to turn that yarn into fabric, and with the help of a small, dedicated team of female tailors from Germany, Ireland, US, and Australia, we designed and produced a T-Shirt centered capsule collection of Egyptian cotton leisurewear, in Berlin.

While working on our leisurewear label, Markus and I felt that the online space lacked a place of discovery to sell our super-soft designs (what can I say? We were picky. These were our babies). We imagined an online place filled with beautiful products from niche brands around the world, and joyful content that felt like kitchen-table talk. A place that fused our cosmopolitan lifestyle with a sense of awe and wonder.  

 

 

So, we turned Frederick & Sophie into exactly that. A lifestyle destination that adds joy to the everyday through F&S SHOP, a meticulously curated assortment of uplifting products from niche, lifestyle, toy, home, and gourmet brands from around the world, and F&S WORLD thoughtful, covetable, and ever-evolving content. The writer in me can’t help to add a fictionally fabulous note with F&S Stories.

Markus and I aim to add a sense of joy to the everyday. In a polarizing world this is our “happy place,” our whimsical treasure trove. 

I hope it soon will be yours too.
