Seuraava kenkäparini voisi olla ála Terhi Pölkki. Niissä kun on jotain hyvin tuttua, mutta samalla yksinkertaisuus, kauniit värit ja modernit vivahteet iskevät skandinaaviseen silmääni.
My next shoes could be made by Terhi Pölkki. There is something familiar and at the same time simplicity, fair colours and modern nuance strikes to my scandinavian eye.
"Finnish born, Terhi Pölkki holds a MA degree in footwear design from Cordwainers at London College of Fashion (2008) in London. Her final collection was made of ecological Finnish reindeer leather and the collection was widely noticed as the first and new innovative way of using reindeer leather in shoes. Her MA final collection was chosen as a finalist in the prestigious, International ITS#7 competition hosted in Italy 2008 and Terhi was awarded Shoe Designer of the Year 2008 in Finland.
After working for UK premium brands in London, she decided to launch her first collection under her name. Her SS12 collection is made of high quality ecological vegetan leather and manufacturers are based in Portugal and Finland.
Terhi's design embraces Scandinavian minimalism, femininity and practicality. The main focus is design, combined with ecological and high quality materials. For Terhi, shoes are objects with a story."
"Hand-crafted, authentic and feminine are the key words for the SS12 collection. Summery lightness with features like two-tone looks, hand-stitched effects and raw edge finishing are found on flat lace-ups, ankle boots, and platforms.The collection consists also range of good old classic clog styles with a fresh and contemporary look.
The colours stand for modernity. Tan, black and old rose whet the appetite for summer and feature not only on their own but also in the form of colour blocking and stripe details. Modernity and freshness feature in the SS12 collection colours and light, flowing silhouettes."
