Minä Perhonen is a fashion brand working to produce clothes which do not lose their allure through lapse of time. It was established in 1995 by the designer Akira Minagawa.
The design process begins with sketches, which are made into their original fabrics. Also, they aspire to develop new materials and techniques with production centers of home and abroad.
The name of the brand originates in Finnish as the designer sympathized with the lifestyle and the culture of FINNLAND; he has traveled many times through northern European countries. „minä“ means „I“ and „perhonen“ is „butterfly“, with a wish to make many beautiful designs like those of butterflies‘ wings. The brand logo signifies „various characters (dots) within oneself (rectangle shape)." Just like the species of butterflies are countless, the designs too continue to increase.
