Known for their ultra iconic textile designs, Finnish design and fashion house Marimekko has teamed up with Banana Republic for a limited time only capsule collection which I personally believe will be the brand’s best collaboration to date! Whether you have a penchant for prints or a bit print shy, I am certain that there is something for you in this 25 piece apparel and accessories collection.
The collection boasts 5 featured patterns which was created by three of the Marimekko’s designers. My favourite hands down is the Kivet polka dot print designed by Maija Isola, which you will find in the iconic Hampton pant, mid-length patio skirt and ballet flats.
Keeping in line with the Finnish brand’s respect to the environment, each apparel piece was developed with a blend of natural fibres. I am so happy to getting an opportunity to view and pre-shop the collection this evening and with the reasonable prices; apparel (including petites) $50-$175 and accessories $69.50 – $98, I am certain I will be rocking Marimekko prints for the rest of the Summer! Here are are few of my fave pieces from the BRxMarimekko Lookbook:
