Liisa Riski SS16

We stumbled across Helsinki based designer Liisa Riski at LFW last season, we were instantly drawn to her graphic prints and safari inspired summer pieces.

The collection entitled ‘Safari Rhino Dreams’ drew inspiration from Karen Blixen’s book Out of Africa, if you’ve not read it yet then add it to your summer read list – you won’t regret it. The collection is drawing influences from the African landscapes and wild animals and we particularly are enamoured with the vintage inspired safari theme that runs throughout.

The Liisa Riski handwriting is clean, feminine yet colourful and vivacious. The beautiful cottons and linens of this collection are carefully sourced from high quality suppliers from Europe and Japan. Whilst manufacturing in Finland and Estonia is done to cherish the design and the skills of people making the products happen.

Whilst it might not be just the weather for it yet, we are dreaming of of summer holidays where we’ll hopefully see much warmer (and dryer) days perfect for this collection. We love the heavy linen dress playsuit which we could happily wear all summer long. Which is your favourite?
