Marimekko Pre-Spring 2021
THE ART OF PRINTMAKING COLLECTION
It’s time to celebrate Marimekko’s artistic heritage with a future-oriented attitude – the common threads running through our new collection are abstract art and geometry. Light, effortless dresses and other easy-to-wear pieces reflect a futuristic play of basic forms: the triangle, square and circle. This season, Maija Isola's 1964 Unikko (poppy) and 1968 Taifuuni (typhoon) prints are accompanied by the new Liito (glide) and Lauha (mild weather) prints by Antti Kekki.
Setting the tone of the season
Set the tone of the season with stand-out style. The Taifuuni print belonged originally to a series of patterns based on photographs depicting parts of the human body. The starting point for the pattern was the curve of the shoulder – the model for the photographs was Maija Isola’s daughter.
Exuding a relaxed, timeless feel, the new Lauha pattern took its inspiration from springtime sights: warm air rising in waves against the window outside, or a gentle spring rain appearing on the horizon.
Bold florals and effortless dresses
Embrace bold florals and effortless dresses. Composed of flower and seed shapes torn from paper, the new Liito pattern was inspired by Marimekko’s characteristic large floral prints – like Unikko. The seeds represent the growth of bold Marimekko flowers in the years to come.
The warmest staples
Welcome new beginnings with the season’s warmest staples that carry Maija Isola’s iconic designs Lokki (seagull) and Unikko. These comfy pieces are made of an alpaca wool blend and merino wool.
