This week has been another busy week of designer collaboration announcements from H&M to &Other Stories. Get caught up with our weekly Nordic News. 

Kenzo (the king of print) is H&M’s next guest designer! After the success of Balmain X H&M last year, the Kenzo collab is sure to be a hit. The collection will be released early November, perfect for the gift-giving season.

-It’s the fashion show of the week and everyone is talking about it! The runway at Helsinki airport served as a three thousand meter catwalk for seven designers from two different continents. The fashion show is a part of Finnair and Finavia’s campaign called “Match Made In HEL” which praises Helsinki as the meeting point between Asia and Europe.
