last night was the design partners opening party for helsinki design week. i went with silver, met plenty of friends, ingested a hefty amount of sparkling and enjoyed the fashion show and design installations. agent pekka and napa ilustrations showed a collection of the coolest illustration talent in their space and i recommend you go and check it out yourself.
one of my highlights was the performance of zebra and snake, a quirky electro-duo.
the night of design was filled with people dressed in black. i ran from work and had only time to change my glasses into contacts, but was dressed appropriately somber anyhow. i love this time of the year when bare ankles, necks and arms combined with flowing layers of wool are just right.

how boring, you may think, and i must admit to the ensemble lacking a certain je ne sais pas. fear not, there was a detail to save me from outfit bore. the schtick was my incredibly oversize bag with a... ta-taa... teddy bear! i love dame westwood's sense of humor and this fall's anglomania collection was again filled with signature westwood icons – such as the teddybear and the squiggle – and just plain good old fun.
