Mirkka Metsola 10th anniversary – jubilee collection HEARTLAND 20/21 is here
Mirkka Metsola is one of the best-known names of Finnish top fashion and has been producing unique and bold art of clothing for a whole decade now.
The appreciation of Finnish design has leveled up high because of the current situation of Covid-19 – consumers are interested in supporting local employment and crafts, particularly in rough times like this. Choosing a domestic option leads to various positive social effects.
Mirkka Metsola invests in quality, localization, and transparency of every process in the whole production chain. The brand’s 10th anniversary publishes a collection named HEARTLAND, inspired by dark shades punk, 70’s glam rock, and sci-fi aesthetics.
Fashion for people
Mirkka Metsola’s new collection HEARTLAND presents mostly unisex products, to broaden the scale of usability of the clothes, and also to break down stiff gender roles.
As an example of this “for all”- thinking, Metsola brings up one of the most popular items of the brand: Boyfriend Pants. It’s clever to purchase just one pair of these trousers per household.
Premium quality Finnish cotton college pants are versatile and stylish. The loose fit allows the owners to vary in size, so many couples or roommates tend to order these trousers to share, says the designer. Boyfriend Pants can, and even love to, be used for two!
As a designer, Mirkka Metsola has a very recognizable touch. The design is strong and unique, with a timeless style that lasts through all the changing seasons and trends. The quality, hand feel, and comfort of the materials is a huge part of the top fashion nature – only design itself will not suffice.
Metsola also favors locality as one of the important factors. The fabrics are dyed and processed in her studio in Helsinki. Cutting, sewing, and production happens in Finland and Estonia. The brand employs a couple of dressmakers in Punavuori, Helsinki – they produce Mirkka Metsola hats and custom works from start to finish.
