The pop-ups will run through to the holidays, while its product assortment will transition every month, in order to offer shoppers a new shopping experience and a selection of new merchandise. 

The pop-ups’ were designed to reflect Marimekko’s timeless and functional aesthetic, featuring greenery and clean lines plus modern furniture and accessories. 
Meanwhile, shoppers can expect to find clothing, bags and accessories as well as home décor items ranging from textiles to tableware from the label’s Fall/Winter 2018-19 collection. 
A selection of archive patterns and contemporary prints will be housed including Marimekko’s most iconic prints from the 1950s and 1960s like the classic Unikko (poppy) floral pattern on dresses, bags, scarves and shoes, the striped unisex Jokapoika (every man) Piccolo print shirt and other Marimekko favourites.
