It doesn’t come as a surprise to you that I like Marimekko – as a Finn, how could I not love our most famous design brand? I am very excited about the Banana Republic Marimekko collection coming to selected stores and online on May 22nd (also on Banana Republic Europe). The entire collection is priced very low from $39.50 to $140, and it looks very promising! You can read more about the designers and SHOP NOW for the gorgeous pieces in this collection.

I love the Maija Louekari’s Kivet-print and the different sizes of the print used in the Banana Republic collection. The skirt and the pants are to die for!

Ain-Maija Metsola | Marimekko
Aino-Maija Metsola’s Jurmo-print is like a new version of the classic Kivet-print and in blue. It’s like rocks in the beach in the Turku archipelago, and the print carries a name of Jurmo island.

Maija Louekari  | Marimekko
Maija Louekari brings more color with her Siirtolanpuutarha print from the garden. I like the complex print in solid color, blue, like in the first outfits, but the original with colors of the summer makes a bigger statement.
