lots of home design outlets, I think this is the Iittala one you mean:
Arabiakeskus, Hämeentie 135, Helsinki, 0204 39 3507, avoinna ma-pe 10-20, la-su 10-16;

And yes there are many desing shops in helsinki, also lots of "antique" places where you can get older stuff too

Shop adresses:

Morro,

Now that high-end fashion is reaching the shops (and streets) of Helsinki: does anybody know if there are any Japanese brands available in the paakaupunki (aside Comme des Garcons)?

Highly interested in Number (N)ine, Yamamoto and Issey Miyake and I would feel delighted if they would be available over there. If not, I have to take a look around in Pietari!

Kiitos paljon ja hyvaa iltaa!

Strange... I just visited Helsinki 10 a week ago and saw no A.P.C.

I am going to purchase a Hermès (or other luxury house known for good quality silk) scarf. Do they sell them in Helsinki? I have my guesses where to look for them, but any added information would be great!

The closest place to get new Hermès is NK in Stockholm. However, you can find vintage scarves in many places, the best bet being Ruuturouva. She has usually several beautiful scarves ranging from 75 to 150 €. Another place to look is of course Play it Again, Sam. But I'm sure none of these places was news to you

What kind of scarf are you looking for exactly, and how are you thinking of wearing them? My mum has a couple of Hermès scarves, and while I love them, I've never quite figured out how to wear them in a "natural" way and not look too stiff.

^ I am going to wear them in a quite "vintage" way, think of Audrey Hepburn in Holiday in Rome. As for the style, I am not sure. I have still not decided on the colour that flatters my face the most, but something very classic and graceful would be ideal.

provokante has opened again, at mannerheimintie 2. there was prada and chloé at least, and the window says they have missoni but i didn't see any. the rails were really bare so i guess they haven't received all their stock yet.

and it definitely didn't open in march, i've been to helsinki a lot this past year and checked at least twice a month this was the first time i noticed it being open..

There's a great story on Helsinki shopping today on Refinery 29:

Covers not only fashion but also home design. Some good picks.
