Fiskars –the iconic, world-renowned Finnish brand known for its high-quality home and garden tools – teamed up with fashion and textile designer Maria Korkeila to launch its first-ever clothing and accessory collection designed for gardening and urban exploring.
Contemporary fashion and functionality go hand-in-hand in the new Fiskars by Maria Korkeila capsule collection consisting of carefully designed urban garden wear and accessories.
Rooted in the Nordic design heritage of Fiskars, the workwear-meets-streetwear fashion line features 11 unisex styles, ranging from modular clothing to multifunctional bags and accessories. The unique collection features, for example, a jacket with stab-proof pockets and a detachable hem, hood and sleeves, as well as a tool belt that can be converted into a street-ready waist bag. Other versatile and adjustable styles include a gardening gilet, gardening overalls, a sun hat, gardening pants, an oversized t-shirt, a gardening vest, a carry-all bag, a gardening apron, and a shirt.
Made from organic and recycled materials and vegan leather, the collection showcases bold, nature-inspired prints in adown-to-earth colour scheme. The pieces have been crafted by socially responsible suppliers in Europe.
The Fiskars by Maria Korkeila collection premiered in Florence, Italy in January 2019 as part of the official Pitti Uomo programme and the ’Palazzo Finlandese’ event series launched in 2019 by Juni Communications and SSAW Magazine.
The collection is now available online in Sweden, Germany, Finland and the U.S.
