Minna Parikka Collection for Fall, 2010.
We love this footwear and accessory brand from Finland called Minna Parikka. I first saw her collection, mostly long elegant leather gloves at a showroom in downtown Los Angeles in 2009. Since then, we’ve been on their radar and tracking how her collection changes. In these photos from her upcoming Fall 2010 collection are new designs in footwear as well as inspirational leggings, long leather gloves, and silk scarves.
Here’s more from Minna’s words on her brand: “It’s a strong paradox that the world of women’s shoe design is dominated by men. Minna Parikka, the brand, isn’t prepared to live in a world like that, and she’s on a mission to change it.”
A lifelong shoe-lover herself, Minna creates designs that are not only breathtakingly beautiful, but wearable and made of the finest materials. She has helped countless women build their own style from the ground up.
Minna’s flagship store opened in Helsinki in 2008, and now her designs are sold around the world.
