One of my favorite bloggers, Kriselda, made a blog post about my collaboration with Vallila. We went together to Vallila showroom to check out their new collections and get inspired.

Kriselda is a stylist and visualist and is particularly good with camera, hence it is no surprise the pictures she took are great. She also shot a short video about my Vallila project, have a look below!

KARLBOX x Faber-Castell

Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with Faber-Castell, as the result the KARLBOX was created. The limited edition (2500 sets in the world) contains pencils, crayons, pastels, fineliners… It’s a dream! Who wouldn’t want to have a KARLBOX?

The box is pricey, though. And now Faber-Castell announced a world wide competition to win a KARLBOX! I saw so many artists and illustrators participating in Instagam, I just had to join in on the fun!

The contest is themed “Karl at Work” and it needed to be an illustration of him, everything Chanel, etc.

I decided to draw beautiful Kristen Stewart – I really like the red eye-shadow look for Chanel make-up campaign. And, of course Karl himself is in the illustration – doing his magic. I drew an enormous paint brush and Faber-Castell pencil as his tools!

I am very proud and honoured to announce my collaboration with Vallila, one of the leading textile companies in Finland. I teamed up with Vallila to design a capsule collection for SS17 consisting of decorative cushions with my fashion illustrations.

“One star guest designer this season is fashion illustrator Olesja Hännikäinen: her charming and elegant decorative pillow patterns bring a breath of haute couture to the collection. All cushions are pattern matched.” -Vallila



You can buy the products in Vallila stores and online.

This feeling when you visit the shop and it has YOUR name under “collections”!!!


Breath of Haute Couture


That one time I made illustrations with different flowers being incorporated into fabric design of the dresses: iris, poppy, orchid. (View post here).


So I decided to extend the “collection” and I give you the clutches to match the outfits.

Lisa Eldridge & Lancome La Rose Blush Poudrer

Have you seen the new limited edition Lancome’s La Rôse Blush Poudrer?

This is one one the most beautiful make up items ever produced in the world! This is simply a piece of art:

I simply must get my hands on this!

I am absolutely in love with the packaging, thus I decided I would love to illustrate this in some of my illustrations. And of course, since I love doing portraits, who else to include than Lancome’s creative director, author, make up artist – Lisa Eldridge. I follow Lisa’s tutorials and she is one of those make up artists I admire.
