Decades old, relevant as ever.

As a part of its Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Marimekko is reintroducing five of its iconic styles from the ’60s and ’70s.

As any fan of Marimekko would know, these are among the most recognisable ready-to-wear pieces in the brand’s history. Handpicked from the design archives, the five-piece capsule delivers asymmetric silhouettes, bold prints and a varied colour palette.  

The collection utilises premium fabrics and in-house textile printing techniques from the Helsinki headquarters. Not too shabby.

The range is available online as of this week.
