*In collaboration with Katri Niskanen// Kaupallisessa yhteistyössä Katri Niskasen kanssa
Katri Niskanen. The woman behind many amazing evening gowns and creations, but who also understands the importance of great fit, comfort and versatility. I have admired her designs at multiple occasions. However, when we met up to plan this collaboration I knew I wanted to focus on her ready-to-wear collection since somehow these pieces are the once I personally associate with the brand the strongest. Maybe it’s the use of material, sculptural cuts and multi-purpose design? I don’t know, but her fingerprint is strong and it shows in everything she creates.
While visiting the shop I had my Pretty woman moment trying on one piece after another. I think I tried on every jumpsuit and every black dress available. This off the shoulder dress is my favorite. I can come up with endless ways to wear it (midi length, ruched up as a mini, worn over a shirt or as a top over flared trousers). This dress among many other pieces in her collections is perfect for travel. Easy, timeless and doesn’t require ironing.
Even though I have a love- hate relationship with jumpsuits it was the one piece I was sure I wanted to feature in this collaboration. if someone knows how to do it, Niskanen does. It is a daring piece with a bit of attitude which I like. This shoulder revealing model is sexy in a sophisticated way. I love how super feminine it is!
All in all there are lots of great options to choose from. I’m also in love with this beauty that found it’s way to life inspired by cherry blossom.
Which one would you choose?
