Because every week should start with good vibes, I’m sharing with you these fun photos from Finnish brand Marimekko . According to its creative director, Marimekko’s designs showcase a whole range of emotions – joy, relaxed, energetic, even silent and brooding – that are combined in interesting, surprising ways. In short, the goal is to integrate contradictory feelings in each concept. Mission accomplished, designers. I look at these pictures, and I feel calm and bubbly at the same time. How is that possible? Only the Marimekko squad knows.
We’ve now entered the month of June, which means that the summer sale season is just around the corner (!!). In the Netherlands, one of the places I frequent during the sales is the department store Vroom & Dreesmann or simply V&D. I’m a huge fan of the Dutch brand Oilily – what with its beautiful prints – and if I’m lucky, I can find an Oilily bag at V&D for half of the original price. (Schiphol Airport is also a great place to score Oilily products for less.) Here is Oilily’s latest campaign called World of Wonders. I just can’t say no to prints!
Oilily started as a children’s clothing line in 1963. With its unexpected color combinations and striking prints, the brand instantly gained fans from kids and parents alike so much so that a women’s collection and tableware line had to be introduced later on. Any chance that you’re keeping an age-reversing device in your basement? My five-year-old self would like to borrow it so that she can dress up like the little girls in the photos. Don’t worry, I’ll pay for shipping and I’ll handle it with care. I’ll even throw in a pack of chorizo when I send it back.
