Here’s a story about Humaid Albuqiash. A rich guy living in Persian Gulf. He likes lions and big cats as you can see.

long time since we have had time to update our gossips!
A lot has been going on during the past month. I’m not even trying to give you any excuses. The biggest changes has and will be that our whole studio (basically meaning production) is moving to Finland!
This is great news but also little stressful. It will be extra ordinary cool to have everything close by but as you know moving is always a little pain in “the back side”. Anyways, I will surely tell you everything when I have some actual facts about time and place.
For you guys this means nothing else than we are clearing our London STOCK! We have lot of stuff on SALE! And surely more will follow while we are cleaning the London studio.

Some of the Zoo on sale
At the moment we are literally melting and fashion stock sale-ing in Oulu, Finland. It is unbelievable hot in here, actually I think the records are braking with highest ever May temperature in Oulu (+36 degrees, someone even mentioned +41…). Do not think I’m complaining. I’m more loving this!
Oulu is a nice city located in the center of Finland. Personally I have never been here before but it has been pleasant to see that we have quite solid fan base here. Big love for that <3 I have pumped into a bambi (of course), pair of elephant earrings and few titiMadam vintage items, like the horse pendant in walnut and the much loved eagle pendant that we are actually considering bring back again as people have been asking about it.
As most of you know summer time in Finland in magical. The sun does not really go down at all… which is sosososo refreshing after the dark winter but it is little confusing as well. The picture below was taken after midnight.
And the happy news is that if everything goes as well as planned we will have great new retailer here by the end of the summer.
Lately we have been very happy about few things…
Firstly because the summer is finally coming here to Helsinki. It’s starting to be very light late in the evening and you can actually feel the sun on your skin. Secondly we are trilled because we got some mail from you guys!
We are so happy with the images you have sent to us. It is great to see our stuff in your environment. Keep them coming please! And BIG thanks to all who have taken some time to shoot these <3

Soon we will pack the Zoo and carry on to Montezuma, little village close to our current location, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.
We have made lot of friends here (including flora, fauna, some humans too) but the best by far has been the beach… It is impossible to get enough of it.
The pictures will tell all you have to know…

Books, the best company. Frida, great inspiration.
Ps. In case you are wondering what are we doing here, we can answer is HOLIDAY! But, but, we came also for some serious inspiration for 2014 collections.
