Collection of Rockville, today R-Collection, had seen daylight. Pekka Saastamoinen knew he had hit a goldmine when he added silk screening to their original design. No compromises were made when getting the best of the best equipment.
During the first years of business the selection of R-Collection grew. Finally in 1982 the classic anorak was introduced and at the same time first R-Collection store opened in Helsinki.
"From the very beginning we had a vision of what useful clothing is like and we knew what feels good. That was something that did not exist at the time and we wanted to make it right", says Pekka Saastamoinen.
