The Print Princess: Marimekko
September 17, 2012
***BEWARE this post contains lots of COLOUR!
Marimekko: Where fashion enthusiasts and décor darlings meet. Taking runways and showrooms by storm, big, bold prints are definitely hot right now.
From long flowing dresses (see Marimekko Senior Director of Wholesale, Paula Nikkanen, below in one of the brand’s recent designs) to housewares with punches of pattern, Marimekko has something bright for everyone.
The Finnish flowery textiles and fabrics take on the eccentric nature of Andy Warhol’s patterned pop-art and add a splash of femininity. Designing and manufacturing high-quality clothing, interior decoration textiles, bags and other printed accessories since 1951, Marimekko is now sold in over 40 countries.
Select Marimekko home accessories and fabric can now be purchased at EQ3’s new flagship store in Toronto’s historical Liberty Village.
Looking for pattern larger than a pillow? EQ3 upholstered items can also be custom made in Marimekko fabric here as well. Sounds like it’s time to start taking measurements…
