NORTHERN CLIME: Forget about the cold; Finland is hot this season.

On Wednesday, the collective Pre Helsinki is to host a presentation of five Helsinki-based emerging designers at a showroom in the Marais neighborhood. Talents include Satu Maaranen, the 2013 Hyères Festival Grand Prix recipient, plus Siloa & Mook, Ensaemble, Lepokorpi and Sasu Kauppi.

Then on Sept. 30, the Finnish Institute on Rue des Écoles on the Left Bank, is opening the Instituutti store and café. Dedicated to Finnish design at the outset, it will start featuring Finnish fashion soon.

Meanwhile, the café is to serve classic Finnish brunch, including reindeer meat from Lapland and coffee from Coutume Café, the Parisian hot spot billed to be the supplier of the finest roasted beans in town.

The Pre Helsinki presentation is Sept. 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. It will be in the showroom Sept. 26 to 30 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or by appointment.
