We caught up with Gender Fluidity expert Mikko Puttonen about the fizzling fashion emerging from Finland
Fashion in Helsinki is an annual celebration of new innovations, young talent and creativity and I was so excited to join the event in Helsinki last week and to report the gender-fluid highlights for Vogue Scandinavia.
We started at the Marimekko printing factory, one of my favourite places in Helsinki. To me, Marimekko is as much a part of being Finnish as the Moomins. Marimekko has been embracing unisex fashion for decades, but I didn’t know before that the iconic Jokapoika shirt was the first unisex garment in Finland.
