March brought spring to Paloni

The forecast is promising more snow in Helsinki next week, but at least we have spring at Paloni! And anyways. We must keep the faith. The summer is closer day by day.

This month we’ve had so many cool arrivals that it’s really hard just to pick a few favorites.

The POGOSTICK failure spring/summer collection with its fresh and modern looks created with leftover materials – to start with – is nothing but favorites. The journalist Hannamari Hoikkala wore the Open Sleeve Shirt in black/beige (79€ at Paloni) on the TV program Puoli seitsemän yesterday. Also available in a juicy orange/purple color combo. And by the way, she combined it stylishly with the Vietto Print Skirt (86€ at Paloni) in recycled/leftover materials and a statement necklace by Jennifer Loiselle (91€ at Paloni) – we like! (Btw, POGO’s Open sleeve shirt also looks fabulous worn on the top of another long-sleeved top, so you don’t have to wait for the warm summer days to wear this.)

Angel Iglesias, one of our rare male designers, is Paloni’s reliable source of chic and classic party dresses, but this time he surprised with something a bit braver. The Paula dress (176€ at Paloni, available in XS-XL) with two layers: one in a sleek striped jersey and one in sheer black, is a brilliant combination of feminine and modern, or of class and attitude. Here’s my suggestion for the summer’s graduates or wedding guests who look for something a bit more edgy to wear at the approaching parties. Another huge plus of this dress is that it’s not too festive, so it goes just as well for a day in the city with friends. When the lovely Molla Mills tried the dress on in Paloni… Well, there was just nothing to add (except for Molla to say that she’ll take it)!

In April we will continue having more summerly pieces straight from our designers’ studios, like those of i.heart.finkSimone’s RoseLinda SipiläMonica Marescalchi and Kiss kiss.
