I’m loving these bold and beautiful prints by Mina Perhonen. This brand is the creation of a Japanese designer who has a love for Finnish culture. The name ‘Mina Perhonen’ is Finnish for ‘I butterfly’ reflecting the designers desire to create clothes as beautiful as butterflies. All the prints are first sketched and then created in to original fabrics which are used to make their unique creations. While the dress styles are simple, it’s the fabrics designs that are the real show stoppers for me.
I’m totally loving the bird print especially the brown birds on the blue/grey background. Even the translucent apple print is very cool and perfect for Spring. Mina Perhonen also makes some funky women’s clothes and some cute baby stuff too. I haven’t seen much of it available in the UK or Europe but you can get a few kids pieces at Couverture.
