We have started to receive the Spring/Summer 12 collections at bod & ted and we are all super excited about what we have in store for you! One of our favourite brands, Marimekko, has just started to arrive, and for all you eager beavers out there, there are a couple of bits online already, so grab them while they’re hot!
If you’re not familiar with the Finnish brand, here’s a quick recap! If you love bold and beautiful prints in easy-to-wear cuts and shapes, then Marimekko is just the brand for you! Marimekko is a Finnish textile and design company that was founded in 1951 and is based in Helsinki. They are well-known for their brightly coloured printed fabrics and simple styles, and are particulary influenced by 1960s prints and cuts. Their pieces are always incredibly original, whilst remaining completely timeless. What’s more, they are versatile too! You can wear a lot of the pieces as tunics, wearing them with jeans or leggings for a more everyday look. So if you want to stand out from the crowd, this is definitely the brand to strut in!
p.s lots lots more Marimekko to arrive, so keep your eyes peeled!
