Two companies from neighboring countries joined forces to create a collection inspired by the archipelago province of Åland and its long maritime history.
The archipelago province of Åland lays in between Finland and Sweden in the Baltic Sea. This demilitarised and autonomous group of islands belongs to Finland, but is mostly Swedish speaking and related. The region has a long maritime history from an early trading post, to today’s hub for sailors and cruise ships alike. This is why it was only natural to share its history as an inspiration for the Makia & Tretorn – “Peace islands” capsule collection. The collection is built around the theme of peaceful marine life and timeless sailing culture, inspired by the Tretorn Wings collection originally launched in the 60’s for sailing, with accompanying products great for life on the sea.
Watch Lead Designer Johanna Gartmyr from Tretorn discuss the inspiration behind the Tretorn x Makia ‘Peace Islands’ collection.
Part of the proceedings of this collection will go to preserving the Baltic Sea through the John Nurminen Foundation. The target of the foundation’s projects is to bring about a visible improvement in the condition of the Baltic Sea, by reducing the nutrient load of the sea.
Mauri Kunnas for Makia part 2 paints the images of timeless Finnish stories translated by Mauri Kunnas, into modern-day streetwear.
Makia’s longtime friend, appreciated artist, designer and illustrator Joonas Jansson has designed some of the SS22 collections’ joyful prints. In this edition of Makia & Friends, Joonas will tell more about his background, design aesthetic and style. Enjoy!
Joint collection by Makia and Tympeät tytöt brings feminism to everyday life and the streets.
