Marimekko Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection â€ťArt of Print Making â€“ Colour for a Seasonâ€ť
Autumnal weather patterns reveal aspects of intriguing beauty: highlights of colour against a grey background. Marimekkoâ€™s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection â€śArt of Print Making â€“ Colour for a Seasonâ€ť, directed by Head of Fashion Design Noora Niinikoski, reflects seasonal changes of the surrounding world. The Marimekko design team was inspired by the clean geometry of 1920s and 1930s art and its similarity with primitive folk art, and exuberant autumnal gardens. The designs, combining calm tones and vibrant accent colours, reflect a contemporary interpretation of Marimekkoâ€™s core â€“ the art of print making.
Some sixty years ago, Finnish fashion and design house Marimekko revolutionised the textile industry with its bold colours, unconventional patterns and clever, architectonic cuts. Today, its inventive, yet timeless dialogue between colour, pattern and shape translates into distinctive fashions that celebrate the art of print making all over the world.
