Pattern & potted colour

Did you know that Marimekko designer Mika Piirainen visits Australia every year for inspiration? Favourite sites include the Waverley cemetery and Heide Museum of Modern Art. Photographs from both sites will inform his upcoming summer 2012 collection.

Also, they  just announced they’re doing a range for Converse. Yes, please. See full story here at Habitus.

I never got around to posting images from their Spring/Summer 2011 show from November 2010 (above). Located at Helsinki’s wholesale flower market, the clothes were framed by a beautiful, bloom-laden carpet and racks of potted colour. HF.
