Discover the photography featured in our SS19 main campaign, shot on film by Helsinki-based photographer Mikko Ryhänen.
Mikko Ryhänen is a Helsinki based photographer who has captured the images for our recent collections. Mikko’s city and landscape pictures were shot on film in our hometown of Helsinki at various moments over the years. We first talked about commissioning him to shoot the raw beauty of our city, but soon found out that he had been doing so all along by himself.
So, we ended up using his back catalogue of images, shot on film as a personal mission over the years. Perfectly setting the mood that we wanted to portray – an unfiltered beauty of the changing seasons and moments that come along, portraying a ‘Through the rough seas’ feel of Helsinki.
Over time, climate and harsh conditions have shaped nordic life into pursuing functional and straightforward design. The initial idea of Makia was to bring timeless, durable, and functional clothing for our customers at fair prices and beyond trends. Read more about our design team and design process.
2020 marks the 75-year anniversary of Tove Jansson publishing her first Moomin novel. To celebrate this Moomin Characters Ltd is launching the #OURSEA campaign in collaboration with the John Nurminen Foundation.
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.
