About: TERHI PÖLKKI LAUNCHED her namesake brand Terhi Pölkki in 2011. Born and raised in the South Ostrobothnia of Finland, the designer currently works and lives in Helsinki. TERHI PÖLKKI'S STYLE sums up the brand’s coveted aesthetic of minimalist luxury with a tough edge. The different surface structures combine matte and shiny materials. The end result is a collection of layered uppers with hand-stitched details. Terhi finds her inspiration from her roots and Finnish nature. She plays with a masculinity in the shapes and a femininity in the materials and colors. It is about a perfect balance that inspired a collection of season-less styles that allow an easy transition from Autumn to Spring. All styles are named after Terhi's special people or places.
