It is raining outside and I am in the need for a vibrant and fun color splash. Therefore I would like to introduce you to this beautiful Marimekko for Clinique Limited Edition Collection.

If you are not familiar with Marimekko. Here is more information: it is a design house celebrated worldwide for its original prints and colours. When the company was founded in 1951, its unconventional designs transformed the tradition of textile printing and clothing in Finland.

Marimekko’s most iconic pattern is called Unikko, designed by Maija Isola in 1964.

The prints chosen for the collection represent some of the most recognizable and celebrated Marimekko designs of all time. They capture the craftsmanship behind Marimekko’s art of print making: utilizing overlays of colour and surprising colour combinations to create impactful designs,” says Minna Kemell-Kutvonen who is in charge of Marimekko’s print design.
