  1. Frock on Friday: Marimekko

    Here in Sydney we’re heading into a hot and humid weekend with temps around the 38 degree celcius mark – yikes! So I can’t think of anything better than swanning around (a freezing cold air-conditioned mall or cinema) in this bright and sunny one hundred per cent cotton dress by cult Finnish textile company Marimekko. The Käly dress, AU$529, is from their Spring/Summer 2012 collection, which was released in the Northern Hemisphere earlier this year. I love Marimiekko’s signature vibrant and oversized florals in this frock and graphic sunny stripes. You can find it at Funkis in Sydney and online.

    Funkis has also reduced some of the Spring/Summer 2012 Marimekko frocks, like this very sweet Nopsa dress (reduced to AU$150 from AU$199), featuring cute pocket details and a contrasting blue trim.

    And this smart Sattuma dress is great for those who love Marimekko’s sleek lines and graphic prints, but prefer a more conservative look.

    Northern Hemisphere birds who are heading into a bitterly cold winter might like to check out the new arrivals from Marimekko this season, including the Manteliptsi knit dress, the Huuru dress and Matilda shirt.
