My absolute favorite street style blog, without a doubt, is the always wicked/bizarre/strangely hair-metalish Hel-Looks. The Finns never fail to bring a dose of crazy to my local internets. Anyway, I was checking it out yesterday to see if it had been updated recently, and lo and behold, this representative specimen of top-notch sequin insanity had a little shout-out to a Finnish designer previously unknown to me... Rinne Niinikowski. Of course I had to go take a look at the goods.

Maaaaaan. It's like a Grimm's fairy tale version of last-season Rodarte, right? Love those flashes of orange. I think it's actually really reminiscent of that Fever Ray video that's been making the rounds too. Except this is from 2003. Finland... once again you are two steps ahead of the game.

Not only does it remind me of Fever Ray but also of the wonderfully weird Swedish film Let the right one in.
