Pre Helsinki – Samuji F/W15

The Samuji presentation for fall/winter 2015 was held at the brands’ showroom and work space during the Pre Helsinki days. In an apartment that used to be a public sauna you now find the design house that is increasingly gaining fans because of its’ beautiful timeless designs.

The fall line goes in earthy, wearable shades of black, brown, white and grey. The material use is highly versatile which makes each piece very interesting not only in design but also in structure and surface. There is velvet, thick wool and soft silk. One piece that caught our Fashion Editor’s eye was a floor length, black see-through dress with thick black embroidery, of which you can see a glimpse of in the pictures below. The coats for next season all looked like something one would want to live in around the clock when it starts to get cold again. There were also beautiful feminine pleats that felt very elegant thanks to their subtle colors.

The current seasonal collection and the men’s wear collection for this spring were also shown at the presentation. The women’s wear collection for resort 2015 carried more patterns and white than the fall line, but also had the interesting textures of different materials. The menswear collection featured lots of neutral colors but also had some fun prints.

The designs are classic and will never be those pieces you spring clean out thanks to their versatility and functionality. So if you’re looking for something Nordic, something chic or simply something you’ll want to use for years on end – head to Samuji this fall.
