Katy Boden Textiles Designer

In awe of Satu Maraanen’s artful collection, awarded the Grand prix at this year’s Hyeres Festival and recently shown in Paris at PremiΓ©re Vision. True to her Finnish roots, Satu values craftsmanship and creates a striking aesthetic by contrasting traditional Haute Couture – dramatic hats, exaggerated bows and sculptural proportions – with work wear inspired shapes and earthy cottons. Oversized brushstroke patterns, textural finishes and bold color juxtapositions add even more depth to a truly intriguing collection, leaving us excited for what’s next for this up and coming designer.
