The Future Landscapes Collection
Celebrating the seven decades of iconic Marimekko dresses in bold prints and colors, we asked creative female doers from around the world what it is in nature that inspires them.
Culminating our 70th anniversary year, our Future Landscapes Collection reflects one of Marimekko’s most prevalent sources of inspiration: nature and its ever-changing landscapes. Marimekko prints have often been created by painting on the floor, literally connecting the designer’s own body with the ground. They have also been born in nature, by bringing a brush and canvas into different kinds of landscapes and studying how we interact with our surroundings in a deeper, more profound way. This kind of dialogue addresses the idea of Mother Nature as our grounding force.
"For me, the most beautiful landscape is a lakeside view in winter that appears white covered with ice and snow. "
–Marjatta, Helsinki Finland
Marjatta is wearing the simple and chic, archive-inspired Kallioinen dress design in the 1985 Pilvi (cloud) pattern by Fujiwo Ishimoto.
Zariya is seen in a modernized version of the classic, wear-anywhere Marimekko shirt dress: the Sinililja cotton dress in the intriguing Maisema-Unikko (landscape poppy) pattern, a collaborative print hand-painted in Marimekko’s printing factory by Maija Isola’s granddaughter, Emma Isola, together with Marimekko’s design team.
Marimekko’s design language has always been synonymous with empowerment. Strong like nature itself, it allows you to immerse in nature’s elegance without compromising on practicality. Channeling your femininity in a statement dress is a worthy source of power in its own right.
