The limited-edition range is comprised of five styles, which are all dressed in vibrant prints and colors signature to the Finnish design house. Two standout patterns designed by Maija Isola and Annika Rimala in the ’60s are splashed onto Mansur Gavriel’s bestselling silhouettes including the Beach Tote and Bucket Bag. Each piece is crafted in a family-run factory in Italy using fabrics printed at Marimekko’s textile printing factory in Helsinki.
Mansur Gavriel’s founders Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel spoke of the collection: “We are both long-time fans of Marimekko. Rachel has a degree in textile design from the Rhode Island School of Design, and studied abroad at the Danmarks Designskole her junior year, focusing on the history of Scandinavian textile design, as well as creating original textile prints while there. It is very exciting to create a product with an influential brand that we both admire.” They added: “We are strong colorists, and we love how color is a dominant element in both Marimekko and Mansur Gavriel. Both brands look to nature as inspiration, and have a minimal, graphic approach to playfulness.”
