So, last Friday I went to see the annual Marimekko summer 2017 fashion show. The event is open to the public and held at the Esplanade park in the centre of Helsinki.
And these are some of the highlights of the show:
There were a lot of dresses (and skirts), of course, for summer. Now, I’m not a fan of the typical Marimekko style – boxy cuts and shapeless dresses – but I really liked the flowy fabrics in this show. And if I was tall and slender, I would snap up this dress with a cape immediately…
This year Marimekko is re-introducing some iconic designs from the 60’s and the 70’s. I tried on the first dress a few weeks ago, but unfortunately it wasn’t very flattering on my curvy body. Which is a pity as I just love the 60’s fashion…
Naturally, there were a lot of prints:
And Black and White
A bit too much black, is you ask me…
And if you’d like to see more, Marimekko posted a short video clip on Instagram.
