VISIT AT KARHU ORIGINALS SHOWROOM, HELSINKI.

When I was in Finland I visited Karhu Originals showroom in Punavuori Helsinki. Karhu is the oldest sneaker brand Finland, and one of the few ones that have really gotten bigger attention worldwide. Most of Finns probably know Karhu’s story that they sold the famous three stripes logo/design to Adidas back in the days for a small amount of money.

During spring I emailed back-and-worth with Jukka, the guy behind Karhu Originals, since we shared many common interests. Jukka who started his career at Nike was involved in relaunching Karhu’s old timeless models as a separate Originals line next to normal Karhu and works now as the brand manager for Karhu Originals. Since couple years he has been collecting and hunting down original pairs, catalogs, clothes and other stuff all the way back from the 20’s. He showed me his collections and told various stories about the basement treasure hunts. I liked especially the og catalogs and the commercials from way back.

Originals products are exact remakes of the old models, and Karhu Originals has only reproduced everything based on original pairs that they have found from the archives and random basements. As a sneaker enthusiastic he has done great job, as Karhu Originals is now sold e.g. at Boston’s famous Bodega and Barcelona’s 24 Kilates.

I got a nice white-blue pair of Fulcrum Star’s – A classic running sneaker model from 1986 that goes well with the sneaker + skinny jeans look that is popular especially in Japan. I’ll share detailed photos soon!

2 PAIRS OF DENIM FOR EVERYDAY USE: UNIQLO & ADIDAS ORIGINALS.

Two pairs of denim for everyday use: Uniqlo T000 Skinny Tapered and Adidas Originals Denim Rekord 8 Bits Blue. The Uniqlos are my second pair of the same model because they are definitely the best low-priced jeans you can get. Besides the good skinny fit they are made of Japanese quality denim. I got the Adidas Originals jeans some time ago from the cooperation with my blog, and ever since they have been basically my favorite pair of more relaxed jeans. They go well with my Vans shoes, have a nice fit and fit as well the fixie riding or skateboarding purposes.

ARVONTA: 3X ADIDAS FARKUT JA LIPUT ADIDAS BLUE DENIM LAUNCH PARTYIHIN.

Hienot yhteistyöt jatkuvat kun sain mahdollisuuden arpoa blogin lukijoiden kesken kolme kappaletta Adidas Originals Blue Denimeitä sekä avec-kutsuja tulevan lauantain Helsingin Blue Denim kutsuvieras launch partyihin.

ENG: The nice collaborations go on when I got the opportunity to raffle three pair of the new Adidas Original Blue Denim collection’s jeans with three avec tickets to next Saturday’s launch party.

Adidas Originals lanseeraa ensimmäisen farkkumallistonsa, joka tulee myyntiin 11.4.20110 Popot-liikkeeseen Iso-Roballe. Mallistoon kuuluu miehille ja naisille kaksi eri mallia sekä useita eri pesuja. Kaikissa farkuissa on detailina lahkeiden sisäpuolella sininen printti.

Innostuin tästä mahdollisuudesta myös siksi että Adidaksen uusi All In -kampanjan on mielestäni hyvin toteutettu. Kampanjan yhteydessä kuultiin myös ensimmäisen kerran Justicen uusi sinkku Civilization tulevalta toukokuussa julkaistavalta levyltä.
