Fine Prints

Anh-Minh Le | June 19, 2017 | Style & Beauty Story Style National

For its spring/summer 2017 collection, Marimekko is taking cues from its past. The Finnish brand has reissued the Monrepos, Linjaviitta, Liidokki and Korppi dresses, as well as the Kentauri skirt—all of which date back to the 1960s and 1970s. “With this year being Finland’s 100th year of independence, we felt it was a good time to re-release these pieces in order to celebrate the milestone,” explains Marimekko ready-to-wear designer Julia Reuter, noting that the company’s extensive archive is always a source of inspiration for the in-house design team.

The patterns adorning the five styles also appear on 11 new garments, including tops and trousers. The bold prints are wonderful for warm-weather wardrobes, says Reuter. “Minimal accessorizing is needed with the statement pieces, making them ideal go-tos for the season.” Just throw on a pair of flat sandals, she adds, and you’re ready to head out.
