Gnl. 438-5151 By HELEN HENNESSY HELSINKI - (NBA) When the "Beautiful People" tire of Acapulco, Cannes and Cortina, there's a swinging spot waiting for them on the Baltic Sea. Finland in summer could aptly be named for Puccini's aria, "Nessum Dorma", for it seems no one sleeps. Night clubs are open until the wee hours and are filled to capacity. And it's a bit of a shock to have to whip out your sunglasses if you come up for a breath of air at 3:30 a.m. The jet set could dance to rock music from a figurative sundown to sunup -- fig. urative, since in reality there's no sundown. And just imagine how "in" could be the place - dropper who could say, 'Dear, remember the delicious pickled reindeer tongues we had in Hyrynsalmi"% Yes, I do think the BPs should try Finland. If you don't mind coming home 3 stretcher case as long as you've had a good time, a (My in Helsinki can go like this: Morning -- sightseeing (and there's much to be seen -- a new concept in theater architecture, the beautiful Olympic Stadium where the Finns hope the '76 Olympics will be held, modern villages built in the woods) or you can shop. Shopping is a delight. There is abundance of new design in furniture, jewelry and crystal that you want to buy everything in sight. Designed by Asko are the egg chair which looks intriguingly tortuous but is comfortable beyond relief and the- womb chair where you can hide when you have that stop - the world -1 - want - to - get - - off feeling. If fashion is your bag the glamor starts before you even get to Helsinki. There is no dearth of young designers in this country, and from among its top talent Finnair chose Kari - Lepisto, who won the Euro - Fashion competition for young ready - to - wear designers in '68, to do the blue uniform for the stewardesses. He teamed it with a silvery, cloud - light blouse. For winter a cape, long boots and a sapphire Saga mink cap will be added. Those summer outfits with one gentle y e t thorough dry cleaning. TITO Cantalamessa 9% W. Church St. 437-2001 Uniontown, Pa. SONS The Finn hostess, a unique f e a t u r e on transatlantic flights, is aboard the plane solely to give passengers information on travel and shopping in Finland. And she is the epitome of chic. Statuesque, brunette Ritva Hairni, a former. Miss Finland, is one of this group. Her velvety blue - and - white, floor length gown is highlighted by an avant - garde silver brooch created by noted jewelry designer Bjorn.Weckstrom. The long gown by Anna - Liisa Nieminen will be changed annually to reflect the latest in Finnish fashions, Finland and Marimekko (designer Armi Ratia) are synonymous and Marimekko fashions are widely sold in the United.States. But the textiles ot a new and exciting star in fabric design -are a must on the shopping list of every fashion - aware woman who visits Finland. So dramatic are the prints of Timo Sar- paneva that they have been used in fall collections by Adolfo, Bill Blass and Don Simonelli. · After a morning's shopping comes a leisurely smorgasbord lunch, followed by a hot dish. This lakes a few hours, but then i t ; dosn't matter when you have all day and night won't come before winter. So you make it back to the hotel to dress for cocktails and dinner. Dinner is' as filling and time- consuming as was lunch. But all restaurants have dance bands -- and good bands, too. The dancing helps a bit to digest such gourmet delights as ox steak or reindeer roast (it even helps dispel the thought that you may have just eaten Bambi or Rudolph). Eventually, a rosy, twilight overlooking the water and shows through the windows woods -- all restaurants have a VIEW -- and you venture a suggestion that it must be getting late. But a few minutes after the sun begins to rise again. And if your host is a Finn, he will say, "No, it's only a bit after midnight and we're due at the club, at 1." Now ask a Finn how he can .work all day .and get only two or three hours sleep and he'll tell you that the sauna is the cure - all for weariness. But being steamed in hot air, scrubbed, beaten with birch branches and dunked in ice water will never for me take the place of seven hours shuteye. This land of forests and lakes can boast handsome men and extremely chic women who, come to think of it, could be - competition in the fashion area far the BYPs. But it was a wonderful change to visit a country where Americans aren't resented. Even if you do have to stay up all night to enjoy their sincere welcome, it's well worth it, (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) * * «.
