Mina Perhonen

Another intriguing Scandinavian label, Mina Perhonen comes from Finland, and to my surprise it's a design collective rather than a single designer studio. 'Mina' means 'I' and 'Perhonen' stands for butterfly. Their site says: "minä perhonen is a fashion brand working to produce clothes which do not lose their allure through lapse of time." And I believe this is true for all the clothes done right, without regard for "instant fashion." Not only beautiful clothes, Mina Perhonen does fabric and furniture as well.

I love that you're updating your blog more often Danca, with all sorts of great design finds. It's making me motivated to post more.

Thanks for the felted tree compliment!
