Marimekko is currently enjoying its Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and the 2015 collection is to die for, both fashion and home.
It's inspired by the ocean, jungles, ferns and florals. It is nature meets urban, city life, smart enough for work, and comfortable for play. The colour palette features shades of blue, sand, green and red. True to Marimekko style, the prints are bold, colourful and fluid.
Recently, I went into the Sydney, King Street store, and tried on my fair share of the collection available in Australia, and purchased two lovely dresses and a cute babies tee for a friend.
Halssi shorts and Pieno shirt
Kirima 2 dress - A$189 - i bought this - It's super comfy, and i'll dress it up with black tights and boots for Fridays :)
Flyygi shorts and Tonni cardigan
Ujuma dress - A$209 - i bought this too in blue (like the Dyyk above), again it's very comfortable and a great weekend dress.
Lindo dress (not available in Australia)
The kids clothes are so gorgeous and colourful - the adult prints are used throughout the children's range. Most items around A$40 - A$55
These Unikko print pjs are A$55
Selection of printed cushions - prices A$79 to A$99

I love these dinner and side plate sets. The side plate is A$39, and dinner $45. If you buy 21 pieces or more you get 15% off.
These little square plates are cute and come in four colours (charcoal not pictured below) - they are $19 each.
This is waxy fabric in Marimekko's famous prints - you can buy by the metre and use it for table cloths
