Ivana Helsinki at Eden & Eden


I happened by North Beach shop Eden & Eden earlier this week on a whim and stumbled upon the shop’s new assortment of Finish designer Paola Ivana Suhonen’s line of Ivana Helsinki dresses and clutches. The prints are nothing if not bold, and sort of old school 70s in a Mrs. Roper kinda way. They made me think of hard candy, ice melting in drinks by the pool, sand stuck on my legs and huge, plastic sunglasses.

According to the store, and I couldn’t find any evidence to dispute it after a quick (though not completely thorough, I’ll admit) search online, Eden & Eden is the sole West Coast destination carrying Suhonen’s line right now. So if you want to see the designer’s cotton dresses and bags in person, a visit to North Beach is in order.
