Marimekko Hong Kong Classics That You Should Cop

Since the beginning, the Marimekko dress has been an emblem for women who walk their own path with confidence and style. Marimekko is Finnish for “Mari’s dress.” In the 1950s, when the predominant fashion was rather restricting, Marimekko started making liberating dresses in abstract patterns in vibrant colours for women who are bold in expressing their personality through their choice of attire. Marimekko designers had an ability to sense the pulse of the movement- their clothing design was a source of enchantment and provocation around the world.

Over the years, Marimekko’s anti-fashion became not only in fashion but also a way of living. Marimekko is considered one of the first lifestyle brands to combine fashion, handbags and accessories, as well as home decor, into an expression of joyful living. Here are some of their classics:

Kihlatasku Dress

Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi’s Nadja print is a true classic. The delicate, Slavic-style pattern has delighted since the ‘60s, whether in Marimekko’s tiny coin purses or behind the popping colours of the iloinen takki coat dresses. The Kihlatasku dress is a whimsical addition to Marimekko’s collection of happy coats.

Sarpio Unikko Jacket

The red Unikko pattern adorns the Sarpio denim jacket, which is made from cotton. The jacket has buttoned breast pockets with flaps, button tabs at the back hemline and single-button cuffs at the sleeves ends, all with denim buttons. Marimekko’s famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity.

Toimi Bag

Geometric Harmonies. The Toimi bag is both refined and durable. It features two large laptop-sized compartments with a small zip-top pocket sandwiched in between. Small odds and ends can be organized inside the three exterior snap pockets. Adjust the leather shoulder straps attached by buckles for a comfortable and customized feel. Made of 100% heavyweight cotton canvas.

Pal Bag

The Pal polyamide shoulder bag is perfect for everyday use: it features an adjustable strap and three practical exterior pockets, two of which have zip closures. There is even an additional zip pocket inside, which makes the bag easy to keep organized.

Tuike Dress

Made of cotton jersey in the classic Tasaraita (Even Stripe) print, this black and white dress has a loose, flared cut to the knee-length hemline. The front secures with snap closure, three-quarter sleeves, and side slit pockets.

Where is Marimekko clothing made?

The majority of Marimekko products is manufactured in Europe and approximately a third elsewhere. High-quality workmanship and manufacturing know-how exist in different parts of the world, and the goal of Marimekko’s sourcing is to find the most competent manufacturer for each product.

Why aren’t all Marimekko products manufactured in Finland?

Marimekko’s product range is very wide and all the required production capacity, special machinery, manufacturing skills, materials and supplies cannot be found in Finland. Marimekko’s design and product development are done in Finland and the majority of Marimekko products is manufactured in Europe.

What is Marimekko fabric?

Marimekko’s fabric collection includes various classic and seasonal prints, and materials like cotton, coated cotton, sateen, linen and batiste. You can order fabrics from their online store just like any products. Choose the fabric you like, its colour and length in metres or number of repeats, and add it to your shopping cart. Your cart will show you the final price and quantity of the fabric.

Is Marimekko Swedish?

Marimekko is a Scandinavian brand known for bold designs where minimalism meets colourful retro patterns. The most famous patterns of them all are probably Unikko, the large poppy flower created by Maija Isola in 1964 and still hugely popular today.

What does Marimekko mean?

The name Marimekko, which translated means “little dress for Mary,” comes from two words, mekko meaning a peasant women’s simple dress and Mari, the Finnish form of Mary or Maria, which is the eternal name for the eternal woman.

Where does Marimekko source their cotton?

The cotton for Marimekko products is sourced from around the world: from the United States, Asia, South America and Africa based on availability, quality, season and price. The base fabrics for the printing factory are mainly woven in Germany, Portugal, Peru and Turkey. They do not accept Uzbek or Turkmen cotton in their products.
