Hey all, my first posting!

How come no one's mentioned this young designers' shop called Hundpark on Iso Roobertinkatu. They should have also a website somewhere on the net...

(Hopefully by posting this I'll get rid of the annoying msg box saying that I haven't posted any replies yet...)

Update:

* Helsinki 10 is now carrying Dries van Noten Mens SS/07 collection.

* Provokante seems to be closed down, as I passed the boutique yesterday, all the lights were down & there was only empty space collecting a dust inside.

I hope they will get those angora leggins and long sweaters! And that gorgeus fur jacket! I'm just so happy!!

Could someone make me a neat list of shops which sell high quality clothing? Preferably quite classic clothing. Where are designers sold? If I plan to start shopping for a high quality wardrobe, what places should I check out?

Whitelinen, I am not sure about what kind of clothes wear....and I'd like some neat list too :p

Helsinki10, Wunder and D'anna come to my mind...Provokante is opening in new location.

Do you know where Provokante is moving? I went to Helsinki10 lately, and warmly recommend it. They have very nice and polite SAs there too.

WhiteLinen, I've heard the adress but I can't remember it anymore But I have something in my mind that it was either going to be opened in the beginning in Mannerheimintie or then in Aleksanteri. I am not sure though.

I also recommend Wunder and Lux for their service! Though I only went for magazines and had some trouble, they were very very polite et all.

According to Provokante own website (www.provokante.fi) they're re-opening on Mannerheimintie 2 by the end of the March. Yesterday I walked pass Mannerheimintie 2, and didn't noticed Provokante... Quite surely it's just that I wasn't paying close attention... or maybe not.

If you are looking for something cheaper try Scandic Simonkenttä.

It would appear only Lux are flying the flag for young, progressive emerging womenswear in Finland!
