We come from a city built on a peninsula on the Baltic Sea, facing every kind of weather. Nevertheless, we think this shouldn’t take its toll on our composure.
This is why our summer collection offers a wide array of products, from longer weatherproof coats to lighter summer garments, combining Nordic functionality with contemporary urban aesthetics.
The ever-changing seasons affect our daily routines, as the blistering cold winter changes into summer with midnight sun. Living amongst these elements gives our designers the first-hand know-how, as their experiences transition to the drawing board. Every detail carefully thought out, while a new design develops from an idea into a finished product.
Rasmus Tikkanen is a Helsinki-based artist and a friend, who has collaborated with us with a series of print designs. Rasmus also hosted the Makia x Tretorn launch party in August at the old military island of Vallisaari in Helsinki where he has his studio. We interviewed Rasmus about his career as an artist, his inspirations, style and love for Helsinki.
Ivar Fougstedt was one of the original founding members of Makia along with Joni Malmi and Jussi Oksanen. Ivar spent a few days in his local neighbourhood in Tokyo with photographer Antti Rastivo.
Makia Clothing and Alvar Aalto Foundation have partnered up for a first of its kind collaboration. Introducing a collection of timeless streetwear inspired by Alvar Aalto’s groundbreaking work as an architect and designer.
