Ivana Helsinki: Moonlit Fields! Pirates! Crummy Motels!
Finnish “art fashion house” Ivana Helsinki is showing tomorrow at Pier 59 and we got a doozy of a press release from them explaining themselves. “Ivana Helsinki started as my personal art-project; now it’s a way of living,” Pirjo Suhonen explains. “I could easily spend my life as a nomad, raising stories of love and life and going to my road trips – but it is pretty much ok to do cute, straight cotton and woolen dresses for charismatic drummer girls and girl-women with beautiful souls instead. My world is for the ones whom love moonlit fields, pirates, dark forests, crummy motels, champagne states of drunkenness, fragile butterflies, passionate relationships, cowboys and guardian angels. After all, they all are just after a love of their lives, rarely seen peaceful madness; just waiting to see, will he be a rockstar, a motor biker, a gnome, a cosmonaut or a sailor.” Alrighty then.
