On Saturday we celebrated the opening of the Ex Tempore Pop Up Shop at Kluuvi shopping center, Helsinki. Ex Tempore brings together the most interesting uprising labels and designers for two weeks, until December 22nd.
The day before opening Ex Tempore I was first working at our concept store and at the same time packing for the pop up. I was a bit worried if I’d make it in time and get our department ready before the last doors of the shopping center were closed at 11pm, but luckily everything went smoothly. Jussi Salminen, the designer of Olav and the creative director of Ex Tempore, had done a great job in organizing everything and getting all the gear we all needed for building our departments.
This is how the place looked like the night before the opening at 10pm.
Along with the opening of Ex Tempore, we also presented Paloni’s new designer, the trashionista Outi Pyy. Her shredded shirts are now sold at Paloni’s department at Ex Tempore. Outi also talked at the opening party about the ideology of trashion and her brand new book. And yes, there was also some talk about the evening gown she designed and made from recycled leather jackets for the actress Laura Birn for the presidential reception on our Independence Day.

If you’re around Helsinki during this or next week, I recommend visiting this pop-up. At Paloni’s department we have e.g. Kaino knits, Emmi Malmström Shoes Mari & Arrow jewellery, Vietto
