Marimekko and UNIQLO, a Japanese global apparel retailer, have announced a collaboration for a new limited edition collection celebrating Finnish winter traditions. The collection that will be launched from 28 November 2019 onwards is the second partnership between Marimekko and UNIQLO.
The first collection designed jointly by the two
companies, introduced in spring 2018, was very successful. The new 2019
Fall/Winter collection celebrates Finnish winter traditions and augments
women's offerings with items for girls and babies.
The limited edition collaboration collection brings
together the complementary approaches of the two companies. Marimekko's mission
is to empower people to be happy as they are, and to bring joy to everyday life
through bold prints and colours. LifeWear is the UNIQLO commitment to creating
high-quality clothing that is functional and affordable, to suit everyone's
The collaboration collection includes several new
women's items designed specially to showcase some of Marimekko's most
recognisable prints such as Kivet (stones) designed by Maija Isola in 1956,
Tasaraita (even stripe) by Annika Rimala from 1968 and Siirtolapuutarha (city
garden) by Maija Louekari from 2009. The collection fuses iconic elements from
both brands bringing to life Finnish winter traditions of families enjoying the
outdoors in the snowy forests under the magical northern lights, and gathering
around the fireplace to warm up in the cosy atmosphere of their winter cabins.
The collection will be available in all UNIQLO markets
