Featured Brand: Marimekko

Marimekko is a textile company from Finland that designs lovely fabrics, as well as clothing and accessories made from their fabrics. It has been mentioned as a favourite of mori girls, who are inspired by Northern European design and style. Many mori girls are also fascinated by fabrics, since many enjoy making clothes or simply appreciating nice textures.

Marimekko clothing tends to be cut in relaxed styles to better showcase the brightly coloured prints and fabrics. I just love the bright pops of colour!



The striped leggings are so adorable with the loose top, and I love the way the yellow and pink go unexpectedly well together in the second picture.



Lovely silk dresses with the coloured tights that mori girls love so much. I especially love the cutting of the first dress. It's casual, comfortable and cute.



Bordeaux red, forest green--all rich fall shades that mori girls love.

The Mika Piirainen collection from Marimekko is really adorable and reminds me of Syrup, with its colourful turtlenecks, printed fabrics and simple, loose silhouettes.



It's no secret that mori girls love to wear turtlenecks in winter, and they go perfectly with these dresses!



Another one of those graphic print tshirts that many of mori girls' favourite brands have been making lately. The baggy silhouette of the second outfit is very typical of mori girls.

By the way, don't you think the model in these pictures is lovely? That hair!

I recall that Marimekko collaborated with H&M a few years back, but I didn't get to see it as there's no H&M where I've been living the past few years. Maybe I'll make it to Finland one day!
