Last Thursday the crew at Live With Us and International Playground went over to IVANAhelsinki’s relatively new Nolita store for a press event where we previewed the new A/W collection.

Just had to show you some of these great Finnish products:


Plates and little notebooks as well as napkins. These are all from Finnish design brand “Northern Oddities”. They’re stuff is only available at the store and in Finland.


Disco balls and sigh-worthy lamps. We all wanted to take something back to our apartments! 

It was definitely inspiring. Some of the pieces were from Paola Suhonen’s own apartment in Finland! Great taste.


What is possibly the best fitting room in NYC, they only have one but it’s huge. I tried to get a better picture of it but it’s so big that I only got this end of the fitting room. 

It’s basically a long space at the very back of the store with a huge floor-to-ceiling curtain that can be drawn back. This mirror and stool are at the end. 

I tried on this dress and a couple of others and felt like I had my very own runway in there. Absolutely precious! I wanted to try on everything in the store.


And I just have to share this cute little dog bed with a wooden dog and chew toys. The rope toys are from the Finnish company Neroko. 

The store has everything: baby clothing, dog toys, plates, shoes (Seychelles closet) and more.

I wanted to move in and maybe put my bed in the fitting room.
