It seems it's back or maybe it never left. The Finnish company is based in Helsinki and is noted for its brightly colored printed fabrics and simple styles. I tried on a great striped Marimekko dress recently that fits this bill.
The company was introduced to the US by architect Benjamin C. Thompson and Jackie Kennedy made the brand famous by wearing eight Marimekko dresses during the 1960 Presidential campaign.
Today the company has stores in New York City, Cambridge, MA, Oxford, MS, Miami and in Vancouver. There are 84 stores worldwide. Keep your eye out for this timeless brand that appears to just "keep going" - gotta love it!
