Based in Helenski, Finland, Satu Maaranen is a womenswear designer. Using traditional work wear shapes as a foundation for contrasting dramatic hats and sculpted silhouettes, the graduate collection showcased an aesthetic unique to Maaranen. Clever color distinctions implemented through brush strokes lapped various textures.
What's interesting with Satu is the distinct use of art within her work. People often distinguish the two as separate entities, believing art is not fashion and fashion is not art. However, cohesively combining art with design in her graduate collection, it elaborates on both mediums.
Showing the new collection at Festival Hyeres 2014 and creating a capsule collection with Petit Bateau, we look forward to what's next.
