Japanese global apparel retailer Uniqlo has worked with Finnish design house Marimekko for a second time to create a limited-edition capsule collection. The range combines the characteristics of the two brands – Marimekko’s bold prints and Uniqlo's functionality and affordability – and includes pieces for women, girls and babies.
The release is timed for the Northern Hemisphere's autumn and winter and celebrates Finnish winter traditions of frolicking in the snow and getting cosy in front of the fireplace. The collection includes hoodies, puffer jackets and dresses and prices start at $10.
Women's T-shirts start at $19.90, dresses from $59.90, and jumpsuits are $79.90. You can get bold-coloured socks for $9.90 and baby T-shirts for $14.90.
The clothing features 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. Marimekko has been making its distinct and brightly coloured patterns since 1951
The collection launches on Thursday November 28 in all Uniqlo stores and via select online markets.
