Installation by Elina Autio. I just love the colours. It’s part of the Elements exhibition currently open at Kiasma.
A few weeks ago I hit the jackpot at a local second hand store and actually went home with a few garments. It’s very rare that I find several pieces at the same place at the same time!
I was a bit surprised to find this barely used Nanso t-shirt . Nanso is one of few companies that still manufacture some of their products in Finland.
These mom jeans will be cut into shorts, possibly dyed and printed as well. We’ll see. . .
I only wear skirts during the summer and the last time I bought one was probably in the late 90’s (yes I’m that old!) But I love florals and the colours of the print intrigued me so much I had to at least try it on. It fit perfectly so I bought it.
Even though I’ve lived in Helsinki for almost 5 years I still feel I haven’t found the best second hand and vintage stores in the city. I know they exist, I just haven’t discovered them yet. So, if you guys have any tips, let me know!
Scarlet by Stiina Saaristo, 2004. Probably the funniest and most colourful painting I’ve seen in a while!
