Blingblingbling said the Xmas lights of Helsinki. They were switching on while Vuoriortta was running to Sunni for a late Sunday brunch. My friend was planning to go afterwards to the Pop-up store “Design basement” in Kasarmikatu. And what did we find…

Absolutely beautiful, vintage style jewellery by Fine van Brooklin. These unique jewellery pieces are all made with love, care and attention to detail. You can clearly see designer’s charming personality in her pieces 🙂

Jewellery by Fine van BrooklinHow sweet little presentations!

Another characteristic designer from this atelier/showroom was Miia Magia. Beauty of the simplicity; feminine satins, laces and crystals, masculine zippers. And what about pieces of a fallen disco ball?

Reused disco balls – chic!

 

…to join the world of Vuoriortta!

Last weekend was kinda party-oriented for Vuoriortta, trööt!

On Saturday we celebrated the first birthday of Kahvila ja Puoti Lillan. Lillan is definitely Vuoriortta’s favorite deco-café in Helsinki! Café & Shop Lillan is child-friendly without being too goodygoody though 🙂 In the beautifully decorated Lillan you can come as you are, sit comfortable at a big, cosy dining table or watch the kids from comfy couches and armchairs. Besides decorative items, you can also find lot of nice things for children.

Vuoriortta is strongly inspired by ecological materials and ethical productions. It is also interesting to discover the diversity and how far one can take it today. In Finland we have various ecological clothing brands, you can find most of them on this awesome site (sorry, only in Finnish): Vihreät Vaatteet (green clothes)

While you are there, you might wanna have a peek of Anniina Nurmi’s lovely Nurmi-collection. Don’t you just love this northern “clearness”! It is hard to pick a favorite…maybe the Auli dress which you can also find in the picture above in multicolour. And the Brody T-shirt for men, definitely!

Vuoriortta’s own ideology is also that the products would be as timeless as possible. Isn’t that something if you can still wear your favorite piece next season without being any less “in”.

BUT, we do not just whine about it! Here is the coolest product ever if you have some problems with your own engine: Valkee It just works. Valkee doesn’t just look cool … → Lue lisää
