Marimekko autumn/winter 2012 clothes, bags and accessories collection was revealed on Thursday at a fashion show in Katajanokka’s old customs house. Before the show started, the managing director Mika Ihamuotila told a bit more about the motif, which was like with the interior collection; off to the woods. He was talking about how we Finns maybe don’t appreciate the nature that so often starts right from our doorstep, quite as much as we should. The citizens of New York, London and Tokyo were used as a comparison, whom have to settle for a park or maybe a spa to get away from the hectic city. As a former Londoner, I could totally relate to this. What comes to the show, I especially liked the loose-fitting woollen coats designed by Tuula Pöyhönen. There were lots of colourful sock and tights as well as wood & resin jewellery that reminded me of some old Marni ones I have, but then again as it was my workplace for so many years, I always see 'Marni' everywhere...
