“The spring/summer 2016 collection was inspired by the work of the strong, visionary women of Marimekko: Armi Ratia, who founded the company in 1951, as well as designers Maija Isola, Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi and Annika Rimala. All of them had a significant role in creating the brand’s aesthetic in the early years,and their distinctive and timeless designs have, for decades now, brought joy and beauty to our everyday lives. With the first Marimekko collection designed under my directionI want to pay homage to these women.
