Maria Korkeila reimagines handcrafted punk aesthetics for men. Following traditions of deconstruction and do-it-yourself, Korkeila proposes a vision where rich textures and spirited colors meet deviance and sensitivity.
Korkeila was educated at Aalto University, in Helsinki. Currently based in Paris, Korkeila has gained experience with houses such as Rick Owens, Saint Laurent, Lutz Huelle, Anders Haal and Hyun Mi Nielsen. In 2017, Korkeila was awarded the Jury’s Special Mention at the renowned Festival d’Hyères, and showed a menswear collection at Pitti Uomo (Jan, 2018) in collaboration with Finnish heritage brand R-Collection. Korkeila was awarded the Young Talent of the Year at the Helsinki Design Awards in 2018.
