Good news for fans of vintage Finnish textiles – H&M has teamed up with Marimekko and will offer a range of vintage-style fashions from April 2008.
The collection will use popular Marimekko patterns from the 1950s to 1970s, with 50 items in total available at launch The range will have a ‘graphic overall look’ and include 70s-style dresses, tunics, skirts and shorts for women, with men having to make do with shirts and shorts. There will also be some children’s items and accessories.
We’ll hopefully have images of items in the range nearer to launch (as opposed to the current artist’s impressions) – watch this space.
