Minna Parikka

When I first found Minna's work, I almost passed out.
I was updating myself
like usual
scrolling down facehunter
and poof
Minna posing with one of her shell shaped bags (sigh).

I definately had a
"are you kidding me, a two tone shell shaped bag!!?%$#?"
kind of moment
I found her site and couldn't believe
shoes and handbags could be
well made
classy
creative
in our time period.

Once I read more about her in "New Arrivals 12 Finnish Fashion Designers"
it all became clear
she says
her "Inspiration comes from old clothes,
and all the times of the past,
when women were lovely.
All the colors in the photographs,
and the feeling, the feeling of old times"

Genius

various pictures from her website and others

I of course wanted to visit her.
I went to her newly opened shop
and felt a little
embarrassed
and nerdy
I think I unintentionally had
celebrity shock
luckily she recognized me
and said hello

I nerdily asked if I could take pictures of
her store
and herself

we chatted about
herself
Helsinki
the shoes I chose

The whole time we talked
I observed
her adorable hair
perfect dress
perfect jewelry

She explained that she and her family
completely renovated
her little boutique filled with
pink
stripes
keyholes
That made me love her more.

Me + Minna
