Heikki Salonen

Did you know that reindeer leather is beautifully soft and delicate and is used just in the same way as cow and lamb leather, well, I have to admit the thought never really crossed my mind before I saw the fall collection from the Finnish designer Heikki Salonen during London Fashion Week.
His collection featured some really nice leather pieces, among them a dress, pants and top and unisex boots and I like the idea that use of reindeer leather fulfill the criterias of ethical and sustainable fashion which I give high scores to, feels so modern in a way.

Unfortunately my camera was on streik that day so here’s all the images I’ve got but you can see the lookbook video below.
