Marimekko January 17, 2010

Posted by Valeria in Fashion, Marimekko.

I will tell you about the Finnish brand Marimekko. Marimekko is one of the most popular brand in Finland. When I moved to Finland in 1997 it looked somehow freaky. On textiles were some flowers and some odd stripes. I was kind of confused, because everyone was using this shirts, dresses, socks, curtains and so on. After all these things are very simple: flowers and stripes. It´s nothing compared with our Russian clothes and dresses. In a fact we have a lot of laces, fur, leather and everything must to be pearly, shiny and dazzling. I really could´t understand how Finnish people can like this sort of things, because to my mind came always the same picture of a prisoner in a Russian jail. (In Russia prisoners are using uniforms with this kind of stripes). So this is why I felt myself a little bit like a black sheep in a farm between all this white sheep.
