Tiina Laakkonen has participated in the fashion industry in multiple roles over the course of three decades, seamlessly shifting from model to designer to editor. As a result, she’s amassed quite the impressive archive. Part of her treasure chest Comme Des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, ’90s Margiela, and Yves Saint Laurent. Now, for a charitable cause, Laakkonen is teaming up with Desert Vintage to host both an online and in person sale of her archive starting on June 10. “I’m happy for these clothes to be back in the world,” Laakkonen tells Vogue. “Just having them in the basement is kind of sad.” But Laakkonen is also parting ways with a sizable portion of her archive for altruistic reasons. She plans to donate proceeds from the sale towards the preservation of an architectural marvel the Church of the Three Crosses. Designed by the celebrated modernist Alvar Aalto, who completed the project in 1958, the church is located in Imarata, Finland—Laakkonen’s hometown. Laakonen has fond memories of visiting the tourist drawing site growing up. But the building has suffered serious water damage and is in need of major repairs. It has not been in use since 2020.
As time progressed, Badu would expand her sartorial scope to include more mainstream luxury designers and brands. Case in point The 2014 Met Gala, which she attended with Riccardo Tisci, then creative director of Givenchy. For the occasion, Badu wore one of her signature toddler sized bowler hats, an embellished overcoat, with a black jumpsuit underneath. It would not be Badu’s only knockout appearance at the star studded celebration of fashion. In 2022 she went with Marni creative director Francesco Risso (the two recently worked together on a collaboration). She wore a Marni colorful patchwork outfit of sorts—with a long mane of ankle length beaded braids. There are particular moments in Badu’s retrospective that represent growth and celebration—like when she hit the runway for the first time at Vogue World last year, dressed in ERL, Bode, CDLM, and accessories by Badu World (her namesake brand). “My first runway ever, period,” Badu said. “I always thought I was too short to do runway, so I didn’t even think about it.” Another pinch me moment was appearing on the cover of Vogue’s March 2023 issue. The photo was one of the last images taken that day, during what Badu calls “the golden hour.” She beams looking at it. ““I felt like I was seen, I felt like I was recognized for how passionate and serious my love for fashion and art is. That’s me, That’s Erykah from South Dallas on the cover of Vogue.”
Laakkonen wants to raise and contribute as much money as she can towards the Church of the Three Crosses’ restoration. Selling her archive is one of the best ways she knows how. “I figured that in a way it would be nice to do something good with these things,” Laakkonen says. “Make money out of them, but put the money into something more meaningful. It was the right time and the right cause to let go.” ADVERTISEMENTIt also helps that Laakkonen’s minimalist wardrobe feels surprisingly fresh and wearable in today’s style landscape. “I’m impressed by how modern these clothes look today,” she says. These are clothes imbued with personal meaning, experiences, and, occasionally, one of ones that only someone with a personal relationship with brands and designers can procure. Take for example the bevy of early to mid ’80s Comme Des Garçons on offer. Laakkonen purchased many of the pieces while modeling for the brand. Then, as a design assistant at Chanel, where she worked under the late visionary Karl Lagerfeld, Laakkonen purchased more top notch luxury pieces (Saint Laurent, Chanel samples, etc.). “Karl used to joke about the fact that we both wore Comme, he said you and I, we wear the good stuff.” As Living Editor at Vogue, Laakkonen developed close relationships with various brands and designers and, as she puts its, “obviously with that life comes more good clothing.” A prime example was how Laakkonen connected with an, at the time, up and coming Alexander McQueen and received multiple items from him. Those pieces—featured in the iconic “Savage Beauty” exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and London’s Victoria and Albert Museum—are not up for sale, and won’t be anytime soon, Laakkonen says. “Those are the only things I’m keeping,” Laakkonen says.
