Marimekko: Design Icon 1951–2018 - Art Collector

Kaarina Kellomäki, Hat and dress in pattern Linssi (lence) (detail), 1966. Courtesy of the artist and Design Museum, Helsinki  This exhibition traces Marimekko’s meteoric rise from the 1950s to the present, and explores the dualities that define its aesthetic. Its iconic fabric patterns and unconventional ready-to-wear outfits brought colour and informality to an otherwise self-conscious fashion world. With more than 60 outfits, swathes of original fabrics, homewares, sketches and other archival materials, the exhibition focuses on the work of the talented individuals who defined this local textile practice and created its internationally recognisable designs.
