The KARHU x Moomin collaborations celebrate these cherished Finnish originals by drawing inspiration from the characters, colours, and fonts of Moominvalley. Look closely at the collection and you will see the iconic figure of Moomintroll —with his wide eyes, perky ears, and oversized snout— gracing the upper of each silhouette.
For this release, the KARHU design team was directly influenced by the story of Moominpappa at Sea, which they have sourced to introduce new colourways of both the Fusion 2.0 and Aria 95. The “India Ink / Chambray Blue” Fusion 2.0 is constructed from micro perforated suede and ballistic nylon and dressed in tones that evoke the Moomins’ journey at sea to find a new home. The “Dawn Blue / Sleet” Aria 95 utilizes sturdy mesh and a reflective M-logo as a nod to the rocky island lighthouse where the family eventually lands. Both silhouettes feature pops of red, inspired by Moomintroll’s scarf, and vibrant geometric patterns that highlight the colours of Moominvalley.
