Intimately Social


Minna Palmqvist is a Finnish designer based in Stockholm. Her work explores the tension between fashion norms and everyday reality. The current collection Intimately Social investigates the boundaries and collisions between the socially accepted body and the intimate, physical body. The shapes we don’t want our bodies to have, are built in to the garments.

My favorite piece is the first tunique.
There's something very poetic, romantic, yet modern about this collection that I truly adore.
Soft and structured.
