Aalto autumn/winter 2015 collection available at Fenwick Bond Street
It’s hard to remember a time before everyone coveted Dinesen floorboards, Acne pistol boots and Arne Jacobsen chairs. But what style mavens are waking up to is that not all Nordic design comes in muted, moody shades. Some of it is loud. Notably that of the less talked about, but soon-to-step-out-of-the-shadows, Finns. Inspired by the country's rugged landscape, their raw and often exotic approach to design is about to hit the mainstream. And with one of the country's hottest labels, Aalto, coming to Fenwick Bond Street, Carolyn Asome talks to the brand's creative director, Tuomas Merikoski, about what makes Finnish style so unique.
