Marimekko Co-created with Wataru Tominaga
To celebrate our 70th anniversary, we have invited interesting creatives from around the world to freely reinterpret Marimekko’s design language and philosophy with surprising new elements. The result is Marimekko Co-created.
Greetings from Japan – eclectic & electric
The third capsule was made in collaboration with Japanese fashion designer Wataru Tominaga, whose work is distinguished by his eclectic, gender-fluid design language. Wataru was the Grand Prize winner at Hyères* in 2016. His modern, maximalist take on Marimekko offers yet another dimension to our bold prints and colors, as he clashes the iconic Lokki (seagull) and Unikko (poppy) patterns in an all-new way, playing with the idea of new adventures and game-like expression.

Heritage meets the future
Juxtaposing Marimekko’s heritage with contemporary Japanese design and broader cultural references, Wataru designed his streetwear pieces with everyday practicality and fun print combinability in mind. The carefully curated home selection continues his vivid design style, bringing you tableware and textiles with our print icons in electric shades of green.
