These socks are part of a capsule wardrobe designed by Sari Nordlund, comprising nine designs perfectly compatible with each other. The capsule wardrobe concept was introduced in Britain in the 1970’s, and has recently regained popularity as fashion consumption slowly shifts in a more sustainable direction.

Each garment is named after a Finnish female writer, except for these socks. They’re called Oodi after the Helsinki central library that opened in 2019. An architectural gem well worth a visit!
