Porpoises and Dragonflies – A Look into Makia’s Summer 23 Collection
Up here in the North, most of the year is either winter or fall – or a weird mixture of both. But when the summer finally comes, it’s intense. That’s when the grey tones make way for livelier colors and patterns. That’s when we dress for the never-ending days of Nordic summer.
One of our summer collection highlights is the varsity-inspired Porpoise Jacket. Colored in the deep teal Jasper Green, the Porpoise Jacket is a button-up coach jacket with a porpoise on the back, acting as an unofficial mascot for Makia. Even though fit for the summer season, we also wanted to make the Porpoise Jacket also weather-proof. That means three-layered fabric with a 20 000mm water column.
Alongside the Porpoise Jacket and summer essentials, like shorts, caps, and t-shirts, the drop includes the button-up Kielo and Lynx shirts. Relaxed-fitting and short-sleeved, the Kielo shirt features a beautiful green lily of the valley pattern running all over the shirt. The Lynx Shirt boasts similar specs but with a pattern consisting of lynxes roaming on a humus background.
For women, the drop includes the summer essentials – but also items with the new Dragonfly pattern by Oona Mäkelä. Known also for her pattern featured on the Sage Knit, Oona designed the Dragonfly from dozens of colorful dragonflies flying on a white background to evoke an impeccable summer mood. The pattern is available in the Sani Dress, Kira Blouse, Nala Dress, and Sani Shirt.
Another highlight is the Kiara Shirt, the loose-fitting kimono-inspired shirt with a belt detail. The Kiara Shirt is made of a cotton-linen blend with 50 % linen. Adjust the look with the belt and enjoy the breathable and thermoregulating properties of linen.
To match the sport-inspired undertones of the drop, we shot the clothes at the Helsinki Velodrome. Built between 1938-1940, the Velodrome is a classic representative of the functionalist movement in architecture – and one of the venues for the Helsinki Summer Olympics in 1952.
