Pierina: MyLook: In Helsinki. | Finland | Scoop.it
I was in Finland for a few days and I had a wonderful time. I love Helsinki so much that I could move there right now. Beautiful people, and they are just so nice! I'm friends with more people there than in Brazil or England. The food is great and they have a lot of unusual drinks that you don't usually find elsewhere like Mint Vodka and Grapefruit 'long drink'. Luckily the sales started while I was there, and they were brilliant! Anyway, I might be off to Finland again very soon (my 5th time :O)...

Karhu shoes are part of Finnish sporting and design history

Karhu shoes are part of Finnish sporting and design history | Finland | Scoop.it
Today’s Karhu with its Dutch-American owners uses Finnishness as selling point.
For decades, the athletic shoes and sporting equipment made by the Finnish manufacturer Karhu, who this year celebrate their 95th anniversary, have been as much everyday reality for the people of Finland as Iittala’s Teema dinnerware or Marimekko shirts.
Especially from the 1970s many can still remember the brightly-coloured running shoes, the heels of which were decorated with round reflector stickers.

"I´m always thrilled to discover new Finnish fashion talent, especially if the designer has a green philosophy. Introducing Poola Kataryna. Poola's design timeless, oddly beautiful and locally & ethically manufactured products. The inspiration comes from living in Finland between Scandinavia and Russia and from mixing modern Scandinavian design heritage and decorative Slavic culture. "Poola Kataryna products are designed for those who love bicycle adventures on midsummer nights, weird daydreams and having a cup of tea in a bubble bath."

Diane, A Shaded View on Fashion: FIRST TIME IN HELSINKI - TEXT BY PHILIPPE POURHASHEMI

Diane, A Shaded View on Fashion: FIRST TIME IN HELSINKI - TEXT BY PHILIPPE POURHASHEMI | Finland | Scoop.it

Dear Shaded Viewers,

This is my first trip to Finland and I arrived yesterday afternoon. The city is beautiful and the mood seems relaxed. Helsinki is this year's World Design Capital and several fashion events have been organized to showcase what Finnish designers and companies have to offer. I'm staying at Hotel Fabian, which is stylish and comfortable. My room feels quite Scandinavian and luxurious.

I will soon report on a visit to Marimekko's headquarters, which I really enjoyed. Helsinki comes across as a peaceful and innovative place, where creativity and imagination are highly valued. Best, Philippe http://wdchelsinki2012.fi/en

Brilliant thinking + Beautiful, functional design + Ecological = Globe Hope.

 

Globe Hope is the brainchild of Finnish textile designer, Seija Lukkala who simply got frustrated with the mad consumption pace going on within the textile industry and decided to put her expertise to action in creating a more ecological and sustainable future. Globe Hope’s clothing and accessories save and reuse nature’s resources and respect ethical production. We love that they’re aesthetic, functional and idea-rich. And the use of ‘recycled materials’ is an absolute bonus. We’re sold!
