As well as the trademark zigzags popping up in the decor, you can eat Italian food on Missoni plates in the hotel's restaurant Cucina, and getting a glimpse into the designer's home as she's used some of her own personal favourite design pieces in the hotel. Prices start from £180. Keep an eye out for the new Kuwait Missoni hotel opening early next year, with Brazil and Oman set to follow.
If that's not enough to keep you going, head to the city's Punavuori, Kruunuhaka, Töölö and Kallio neighbourhoods for Vintage Babushka, Helsinki 10, Mekkomania, and Penny Lane Boutique.
