Helsinki

Two Monday's ago I was lucky enough to go to Helsinki for a day for work. Between 7 hours of power-point presentations and a work dinner there wasn't a hell of a lot of time to shop. About 40 minutes, but I made the most of it. I dragged my fellow female colleagues to my favourite brand's flagship store: Ivana Helsinki. I was very happy to find it was sale time and each of us picked up a little Finish souvenir. Wonderful.
If you're heading to Helsinki I would suggest the following designer staples: Iittala, for gorgeous glassware and ceramics:
Arabia ceramics:
And of course, the textile designers at Marimekko:
And in our hotel I found a very nicely designed business card which lead me to an even nicer little website for My o My. Which I'll be checking out next time I find myself in Helsinki.
