Marimekko capsule collection

Banana Republic and Finnish fashion and design house Marimekko have teamed up to create a new limited edition capsule collection, the Banana Republic Marimekko Collection. The collection blends Banana Republic's modern, American style with some of Marimekko's most iconic textile designs in an array of dresses, separates and accessories that will make you pop this summer. “Marimekko's unique design of pattern and colour has always inspired me as a designer,” says Banana Republic Vice President of Women's Design, Melloney Birkett. “With this summer capsule, we wanted to create a collection that marries Marimekko's iconic prints with our signature silhouettes. We were inspired by Marimekko founder Armi Ratia's motto of, “˜Stand out from the rest,' and we designed a collection of must-have summer standouts.” The 25-piece women's capsule collection launches exclusively at select Banana Republic locations worldwide and online beginning in late May 2014. Apparel includes petites and will range in price from $50 to $175; accessories range from $69.50 to $98.
