Finnish born Julia Lundsten founded the Finsk brand in 2004 after graduating from London’s renowned Royal College of Art. The award-winning footwear designer comes from design stock blood with an architect father and interior designer mother.
Finsk shoes are handcrafted in a Brazilian atelier, demonstrating Lundsten’s strong directional vision, with the lines of her avant-garde footwear inspired by architecture and furniture. The brand is most notable for its signature wooden wedge heel, with each shoe distinctive in geometric structure.
The brand has charmed the very cream of the fashion crop with Manolo Blahnik having been quoted as describing the shoes as perfect and divine.
