Since gradutating in 2012 from the Aalto University School of Arts in Design & Architecture, Finnish fashion designer Satu Maaranen has been setting the fashion world on fire.
Finnish born and bred to a life and love of the outdoors, she takes inspiration from nature and has been known to use sand, sawdust and grass in her designs. This, teemed with the inspiration from iconic design figures Marimekko and Christo, means Maaranen doesn’t shy away from big sweeping gestures and bold abstract expressions of painterly colour.
Her use of colour and form is awe-inspiring. Ridgid yet soft, her designs are full of personality, almost inhabiting the wearer. We just love those brave brushstrokes of colour.
