I picked up and started flipping through a Marimekko book that was given to me in 2005 by the U.S. distributor of Marimekko at that time. The book is “MARIMEKKO Fabrics Fashion Architecture”. It recounts the history of the Finnish textile company. The pictures are gorgeous. What really strikes me as impressive is how timeless both the textile patterns and the apparel that they produced are. I looked at the images of models in Marimekko garb and felt as though the models’ haircuts and clothing could beasily be worn today and still look fresh and timely.
