So, for the coming two weeks, this will be the place to find the coolest Christmas gift (for yourself or) for your dear ones. Ex Tempore will be open every day starting from tomorrow, Saturday Dec. 8th until Saturday Dec. 22nd. It’s located on Kluuvi’s second floor.
We also have other very exciting news: we have a new designer whose creations will be for sale at Paloni for the first time at Ex Tempore. She is also known as an international blogger and as an author, and as a pioneer of making and promoting do-it-yourself high-fashion out of recycled materials. I’m sure many of you already guess who I’m talking about. Yes, she is the trashionista Outi Pyy, the blogger from behind OutsaPop Trashion and the author of the brand new book Trashion! So, among all the other items at Ex Tempore, you’ll find Outi’s shredded shirts by the label OutsaPop Trashion. Starting from next week, you’ll also find them from Paloni’s concept store at Eerikinkatu.

Tomorrow you also have the chance to hear a bit more about trashion and to meet Outi in person. She will be at Ex Tempore giving a presentation about the backgrounds and ideology of her book at 4pm (free entry!) after which you’ll have the chance to buy a signed copy of her book (35€). The book is amazing, and I’ve wrote about it before, here.
Hope to see you at Ex Tempore – if not tomorrow, then during the coming weeks!
