MAKIA x MOOMIN PART 2
ADVENTURES OF MOOMINPAPPA
For 2019 the MAKIA X MOOMIN collection carries a light summer attire, with light colours
and highlights such as an all over rose pattern and a yellow rain coat, with details and prints
combining Tove Jansson’s original drawings.
The colours are gentle summery tones from old Japanese edition Moomin books
that we found from the Moomin Museum in Tampere Finland.
For the second and final part of the collaboration between Makia and the Moomins, they got inspired by the easily relatable and curious character of Moominpappa. With a thirst for adventure he often sets out for travels into far away places, meeting new and unexpected acquaintances, sometimes resulting in coming home with a tail between his legs. As a whiskey loving dreamer, philosopher and a family man, this gentleman troll with his sea-faring yearnings and bohemian ways, is a truly humane inspiration that we can most definitely bear a resemblance to.
