Marimekko New Line Autumn/Winter -’06/’07

Marimekko Saaa-woon! Browse some new beauties from your Finnish friends, with four color themes in their Autumn collection that reflect the diversity of nature, created by talented young designers Erja Hirvi, Maija Louekari and Teresa Moorhouse, Maija Isola, Fujiwo Ishimoto and Marjaana Virta. Isn’t the Kassiopeia fabric amazing? Not to mention (okay I’ll mention!) their fashion, handbags and accessories for Autumn, totally hot hot hot! Umbrellas, coin purses, handbags, and a must-have b/w striped shirt with Marimekko across the chest in red. I have to find out who carries that shirt online, does anyone know?

For Marimekko home stuff (and accessories), locals can head on over to Bliss on Newbury Street in Boston.

So… What are your favorites for the season?

[UPDATE: FYI: I found a source for Marimekko fashion, called Kiitos in New York.)

It’s no secret, slowly mushrooms are popping up all over in the United States, and your friends at Fred Flare have mushrooms galore to fill your home with happy. Check out all of their new items right here online. Smiles for everyone!

If you’re reading outside of the U.S., what are some big trends in your part of the world? We’re seeing lots more of the baroque modern style, everything eco-friendly, owls + birds, mushrooms, neutral spaces with lots of bright accents, acrylic furniture (still!), and of course, the always present mid-century modern explosion!
