Hel Looks
a 'Street Fashion' blog from Helsinki, bringing you the culture of the coolest of the cool of the euros, finn fashionist(as) Tongue

http://www.hel-looks.com/

I like the brightly-coloured knitware that is on quite frequent display:

traditional scandinavian stuff? (is it saami derived?) - anyway, you don't see those here...

this would make a good disguise too ;)

menz who make their way onto these kind of things are usually erm, 'interesting' too:

Comic minimalism is stylish.”


Will any FE members oneday make it into the blog? (I can see Eld with his waistcoat and pipe and cap making it Big Grin)

In browsing there were a couple of africans but several asians. Is there a large-ish asian/chinese/viet/whereverthey'reallthesame community in Helsinki? what kind of numbers?

RE: Hel Looks
The second one looks interesting. The coat, scarves, skirt, boots... that's what my grandmother used to wear in winter.

With the ongoing financial cirsis and a new world war knocking on the door, I'd say the 30's are comming back. Great!

RE: Hel Looks
Hilarous site Big Grin Hipsters and weirdoes. There´s also few sites which are making parody of HelLooks and I think one of the best ones is made by a company which sells all kinds of military clothing and stuff etc.

TBH I don't think *most* of the people look *that* weird, at most 'quirky'. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

For really weird weirdos you should look (as always) to Japan Tongue

Big Grin that's hilarious
I especially like the first two;

"Few people know that wool and leather work just as well on moon as down on earth. However, the rubber soles of the boots provide much more traction in moon's surface than the old models with metal hobnails.

Jawohl, katkase"

RE: Hel Looks
I kind of like Hel-Looks though I find it focuses on only a certain portion of the population...

I'm more interested in candid street-photography to see what people in a certain city are wearing.

I'd dress like that if I intended to go war. thumbs up

Or perhaps if I went camping. At any rate, nice outfit. Coolness factor: 9/10

We must dissent.
