These Boots are Susanna Emi Oinonen

These boots are made for walkin'
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
Ya.....Susanna Emi Oinonen she gonna walk all over you

I feel like we've lost our cultural influencers to drive new style these last few years in progressive Sydney. Our style seems a little less progressive as our reputation precedes it to be. Perhaps its due to the obvious lockdowns but it is damn refreshing to see someone appear with a new take on style.

Susanna or "Emi" is how she is known to her Aussie mates, recently landed in Bondi from Finland. She might just be the most interestingly stylish lady to arrive on Aussie shores in recent history. All class and attitude with a creative flair and an eye for detail in front of and behind the camera. She walks to her own drum and that is incredibly refreshing.

Susanna Emi Oinonen features in our Eco Retrospect campaign shot by Mitchel Tomlinson of Life Without Andy.

We had a chat to Emi to get know this ladies style...
