Time for round two – Leni Klum is once again the face of the cult brand Fila and is bringing her favourite styles to DEICHMANN.

Leni Klum is versatile and active. She inspires, likes to go her own way and she is always “on the move”. And that’s exactly why Leni and Fila go so well together. She will once again be presenting her favourite styles as the brand ambassador for the famous sports and lifestyle brand which will be exclusively available at Deichmann, Europe’s largest footwear retailer, in the Spring/Summer 2023 season. What’s new? Alongside stylish sneakers, Leni’s personal selection will now also include the clothes, accessories and bags to go with them. The collection will be available throughout Europe in selected DEICHMANN stores and online at from Monday, 20 March 2023.

After the success of the last campaign with Fila, Leni Klum is once again the face of the Italian cult brand. With the campaign motto “On the move”, this year’s collection stands for variety and urbanity – attributes that the model herself also represents. From head to toe: This season, the sneakers will be supplemented for the first time by a clothing line plus accessories and bags to create a head-to-toe look. Alongside 23 sneaker styles, the Spring/Summer 2023 collection will thus also comprise sports tops, trackpants, sweaters, shorts, socks, bucket hats, crossbody bags, backpacks and totes, which are all stylish yet casual. The cooperation spreads the message that you can find the perfect look for any occasion.

Whatever she does – Leni is constantly exploring new places, always on the move. Various outfits and scenarios provide glimpses of a lifestyle full of authenticity and vitality. She embraces life lightly – as can be seen in the campaign ad filmed by Nathan Presley. In summery LA, Leni closes her eyes and takes viewers with her into her own world. Leni’s favourite sneakers and clothes for an action-packed, fun-filled day are always there, whether it’s playing mini-golf, driving a classic car or enjoying a shake in a diner. Max Montgomery, well-known fashion and celebrity photographer, has once again skilfully presented Leni and her favourite styles in the campaign photos.

“I love fashion, but I need to be comfortable too. Apart from casual short-sweatshirt combinations and jogging suits, my wardrobe also contains the right accessories and sneakers for presenting all the different facets of my style”, says Leni Klum. “Whether it’s running sneakers, an all-white outfit or the addition of a casual bucket hat – my favourites are as varied as my looks.”

“We’re delighted that Leni Klum is once again the face of Fila for DEICHMANN. With her good feeling for fashion and sporty styles and her positive aura, she is a great brand ambassador and cooperation partner for us”, emphasizes Heinrich Deichmann, Chair of the Administrative Board of DEICHMANN SE.

On trend and casual: Leni’s exclusive favourite styles stand out because of their many different shapes and their use of the colour white, with individual accents, for example, in bright pink or lilac – and the famous Fila look can still be recognised. All the articles reflect the season’s latest trends: graphic, retro and sporty. The highlights of Lenis favourites are Fila’s popular white sneakers – restrained and minimalist – or running styles and the iconic bucket hat. Classic sporty combinations of black and white complete the collection and reflect Leni’s fashionably casual style.

The “Fila meets Leni Klum for DEICHMANN” favourites will be available at selected DEICHMANN stores in Germany and other European countries and online at as of Monday, 20 March 2023. The items are priced from €7.99 to €64.99.
