161st issue: Shopping in Helsinki?

Many people prefer all these cliche places for shopping: Tokyo, New York, Buenos Aires, Paris, Stockholm..

But you can also find ver nice stuff from Finland. Also Finland is a kind of a meeting point for East and West. 

Ok, ok, 550 000 people in Finland might be True Finns, but the rest - 4 600 000 - think a little bit of getting more cosmopolitan. So, in a few years we have start getting more and more shops that sell both Finnish and foreign brands.

My O My
I was positively surprised when I saw My o my selling Tsumori Chisato. I'm a super fan of this Japanese brand. Also My o my sells Sonia Rykel, Paul Smith, Chloé...

Aleksi 36 and Erottaja 9B

Liike Shop
Liike is specialized in Finnish designers

Yrjönkatu 25

Helsinki 10
I think Helsinki 10 was one of the shops that really bring the fashion to be able to everyone. I might be totally wrong, but one thing I m sure about is that Helsinki 10 bring a totally new atmosphere to Finland, they bring something that was missing: a shop which sells fashion, 2nd hand clothing, design accessories  and art books. Also they are having art gallery on the shop. 

Eerikinkatu 10

Sneaker heaven for chicks!
