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.
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.
