Style: Marimekko Spring 2013

Last night I attended Marimekko’s presentation of the Spring 2013 women’s clothing collection at the boutique on Newbury Street, Boston. It was informal and fun. Everyday girls and women were the models. They made several outfit changes, and walked through the space, mingling with guests. The colors, as expected where bright and cheerful, but not hard edged. Purples mixed with greens; aquamarines and turquoise; gray and yellow with a shot of coral; navy and hot pink. In terms of silhouettes, there were ’60s style shifts as well as more contemporary party dress shapes. The best was a floor-length piece with exaggerated, jutting pockets at the hips. There was also a flow-y hostess gown that my mother-in-law would adore. Let’s have a look through the Instagram filter.
