...is the title of the SS2011 collection of playful female dresses with anchor prints, maritime stripes and coastal flowers by the Finnish, for some time in New York, now in Los Angeles based design label Ivana Helsinki by Paola Ivana Suhonen who says:
"I could easily spend my life as a gypsy or a vagabond;
love stones, road trips, strong living.. .but its okay too, to make cute cotton and woollen dresses for charismatic
drummer girls and girl women with beautiful souls. They are the girls who love moonlit fields, pirates, dark vast
forests, crummy motels, a champagne state of drunkenness, fragile butterflies, lullabies and guardian angels.. ."
Think of white arctic summer nights, the isolation of Nordic winters when you watch the video from the catwalk in New York on this page. The anchor motifs on the 60s styled pieces of the 'Where The F*ck is My Sailor?' SS2011 collection are inspired by old-school Sailor tattoo designs.
