Aalto showed a playful, but pragmatic S/S 17 collection that covered the spring spectrum in terms of color, presented color coordinated in a gradient from white and khaki all the way to pearlescent purples. The collection also included a collaboration with the fittingly Finnish comic characters The Moomins. A Motif that appeared in smaller and larger details throughout the collection of blazers, generously cuts pants, windbreakers with elastic bands, huge bows and bucket hats. Unembellished models like Lina Hoss, Charlotte Lindvig, Mckenna Hellam and more presented the simply sweet color blocked affair.
