《Marimekko Opens First Store @ Hong Kong》

Marimekko, the Finnish textile and clothing design house renowned for its original prints and colours,  opened the very first Marimekko store in Hong Kong recently. The store is located in Causeway Bay on the block that enjoys growing popularity among interesting fashion, interior design and lifestyle brands.
With a unique character and high windows façade the store showcases the whole world of Marimekko at its best, and the objective is that it will become an iconic landmark for the area. Shanghai would be next follow by another 13 more Marimekko stores in China by the end of 2016.
When Marimekko was founded in 1951, its unparalleled printed fabrics gave it a strong and unique identity. Armi Ratia, the founder, commissioned young artists to create distinctive fabric patterns, which resulted in boldly coloured, non-figurative designs that revolutionised the tradition of textile printing. Marimekko was traveling in the boundary between art and design long before anyone even talked about it.
The heart of Marimekko translates into strong, timeless designs in clothing and other accessories as well as interior decoration ranging from furnishing fabrics to tableware. All with the aim of creating aesthetic experiences for every moment in life for people of all ages.
