Marimekko | Banana Republic

I’m strongly pulled towards pattern and print, and Marimekko, the joyful Finnish design and fashion house with a love for colour and bold designs, is one of my favourites! Back in May, they collaborated with Banana Republic on an exclusive capsule collection to celebrate summer. Using archival prints from the iconic Marimekko collections, some of which dating back to the fifties, Banana Republic designers worked with the Marimekko team in Helsinki to create a limited edition collection. I found this so inspiring!
