Finnish design house Marimekko concludes its overarching theme of the year—New Folk with a dive into contemporary craft—with the unveiling of its Fall/Winter 2022 collection. Traditional tailoring traditions take a softer, more comfortable, and feminine form, whereas decorative, almost ornamental patterns from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s allow elevating the wardrobe up or down.
Neutral base tones of canvas whites and soft grey beiges are complemented with a rich mix of butternut, chanterelle, amber and chestnut, blossoming on the bold prints the design house has become famous for. The season’s captivating play of prints, silhouettes, proportions, layers, and jewelry-like details offer an intriguing dialogue between the past and presence and make something old feel entirely new.
“This season, we investigated the arts of tailoring and layering, which are common features found in folk wear all around the world. Layering different pieces with a different function allows the wearer to style the same piece up or down for a myriad of occasions and weathers,” creative director Rebekka Bay shares. “In our Fall/Winter 2022 collection, each piece can be worn on its own or layered with existing pieces of one’s wardrobe. Combinability and modularity continue to be at the center of Marimekko’s updated design ethos.”
The Fall/Winter 2022 collection will be available to purchase on Marimekko’s website.
