Petteri Hemmila is an accessories designer based in Paris, France known specifically for his distinctive handmade quality pieces. Hemmila grew up around fabrics and sewing machines— his mother ran Hemmilä Oy— a women’s print design company. After his studies at Parsons Paris, he began to work under Christophe Decarnin, the creative director of Balmain at the time. Hemmila launched his label in 2013 and has since then perpetuated his unique designs to create timeless pieces of accessories. The AW14 collection is infused with Lapp Shamanic tradition; each bracelet and belt acts as a talisman to protect and empower the wearer.
