"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." Can you make it sound any more better than that?"

I love that knotted vest, though I'd opt for black or maybe charcoal
