After seeing these objects of divinity over at The Freelancers, I cannot get them out of my mind. What is it about the Finnish and their amazing sense of design? So I have been searching, and Googling, and emailing, but alas I cannot find these sublime treasures anywhere on our fine shores. (Imelda, I commission you to remedy this dreadful oversight).I couldn't possibly make a decision on one pair on the internet either and just have them shipped here. I want to see them, touch them, prance around the shop floor in them. And I may have the answer. After trawling the Minna Parikka official site (and giving myself palpitations), I discovered that they have one stockist boutique in Tokyo. So I may yet get my wish. Given that I have a few shopping days planned in Tokyo next month, these have made it onto my Must See list. I may yet get my wish!
