AALTO is a Finnish designer brand, created in Paris by Tuomas Merikoski. AALTO, that means wave in Finnish, was launched in 2015, with an entry to luxury designer positioning, and presents the main collection in official Paris Fashion Week.

The brand identity is based on Tuomas Merikoski’s Finnish origins and his vision of the real Finnish identity. The Finnish youth culture, the contrasts and taboos are key factors in his creative process. Simultaneously the brand mixes the origins to an international business concept and aims to operate solely on international luxury industry.

AALTO’s approach to the femenine wardrobe plays with contrasts, from masculine to femenine and from elegant and sophisticated bases to strong urban fashion aesthetic. Tuomas Merikoski, the founder and creator of AALTO, lives and works in Paris and has collaborated longtime with the most influential luxury brands such as Givenchy and Louis Vuitton.
