Giunta alla quarta edizione, la sezione Only Woman vede come Special Guest il brand finlandese di base a Parigi AALTO, disegnato da Tuomas Merikoski che, dopo esperienze da Givenchy e Louis Vuitton, ha lanciato il suo brand riscuotendo immediato successo internazionale, come semifinalista del prestigioso LVMH Prize. AALTO, che significa “onda” in finlandese, trae ispirazione dalla terra e dai giovani della Finlandia, evocandone tabù culturali e scenari ambientali e artistici, ma distillati seguendo un’estetica all’avanguardia. Proprio all’ingresso del salone in Via Tortona 27, AALTO presenterà la sua nuova collezione all’interno di una sala speciale,
personalizzata ad hoc per WHITE.
