Moomin’s Winter in Yellow Helsinki

You must go on a long journey before you can really find out how wonderful home is.

Snufkin (Comet In Moominland)

Hi guys, how are you today? I sincerely hope that you are good and that you are huge fan of Moomins. If your answer is YES, this post is perfect for you!

Today I have an interesting post for you. I will tell you how I managed to fulfill my childhood dream and remember my dear heroes from a famous cartoon – The Moomins. For all those who may not remember or are not familiar with these famous Finnish characters in a series of books, comics and television series, here’s a small reminder! Moomins are a family of white, round fairy tale characters with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotamuses.

This carefree and adventurous family lives in a house in Moominvalley, somewhere in the forests of Finland. In addition to them, books and series mention other characters that may be slightly different from them, but are accepted as part of a family and friends. A very interesting cartoon of my childhood and I’m glad that I had the opportunity to grow up with them, but I was not able to learn the Finnish language! 🙂

Maybe I did not able to learn Finnish, but I had a chance to visit Helsinki and feel that kind of nature and a slightly different life than we live in Serbia every day. Surely you are all now wondering what the Moomins have to do with this special fashion outfit post from Finland?

During my visit to Helsinki, I received a invitation from the famous Finnish luxury street fashion brand Makia to be one of the brand ambassadors of their brand. Since at a meeting with my friends from the My Helsinki I showed great admiration to their cult series The Moomins and told some situations from my childhood when I watched this famous Finnish television series, they sent it to representatives of the Makia brand and the this unusual cooperation took place.

The Makia brand was founded in Finland in 2001. This brand is a Helsinki based clothing company producing Nordic contemporary designs to stand the test of time, equally in quality and over trends to become a part of our everyday lives. The idea of Makia originates from the need to keep warm in harsh conditions, while befitting a city environment. Makia’s collection is inspired by the history and surroundings of Helsinki Harbour, where the brand’s headquarters are located and has evolved into a full line of garments to shelter you from head to toe.

This year, Makia brand managed to make first collaboration of this type with the Moomins. It is also the first cooperation of this cult Finnish brand like Moomin with a fashion brand such as Makia.

Bright colors, practicality and, of course, the quality of the materials are just a few reasons why this special collection of Makia x Moomin is so special. To me, this yellow jacket made a smile on my face that awakened in me that Little Marko who enjoyed in his favorite cartoon.

Another day in Helsinki has ended, little Marko filled his another childhood dream, and everything was better than I imagined as would ever be in my life. Sometimes, you don’t need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to. Because it’s fun. Because it makes you happy.

My dear fashionistas once again we have come to the end of this first special fashion outfit post from Helsinki. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will continue our adventure in Finland and Italy as well.

The fourth day in Helsinki ended, tired, but happy we went to our Aallonkoti apartment to fill our “batteries” just to continue our adventure. In the next post I will introduce you to the most beautiful zoo in Europe. It’s on island! I can’t wait to show you everything. 🙂

At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from the Makia who made my day with this new collection and I hope that I have succeeded to refresh this cold winter with these cheerful colours! 🙂

Perhaps at first sight orange and yellow colours do not combine well, but I learned from my previous experience that people mostly make a mistake when it comes to fashion. One thing is when you see clothes on hangers, but that right comes just by yourself when you dress up those things. You will see all those thing different on your body.

Best,

Mr.M
