Japanese global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces that it will launch its second limited edition collection with the Finnish design house Marimekko on November 29. The first collection designed jointly by the two companies was a sensation when introduced in spring last year. The 2019 Fall/Winter collection celebrates Finnish winter traditions and augments women’s offerings for the first time with items for girls and babies.
The latest collaboration collection includes several new women’s items designed specially to showcase some of Marimekko’s most recognizable prints such as Kivet (stones), designed by Maija Isola in 1956, Tasaraita (even stripe), designed by Annika Rimala in 1968 and Siirtolapuutarha (city garden), designed by Maija Louekari in 2009. The bold and colorful Marimekko prints will be featured on the first Ultra Light Down Cocoon Coat, Wool Cashmere Hoodie, shirt dresses, and jumpsuits. Also new are items for girls and babies for perfect pair coordination. The collection includes great accessories, among them leggings for babies, knitted accessories, and HEATTECH socks.

The limited edition collection brings together the complementary approaches of the two companies. The collection fuses iconic elements from both brands bringing to life Finnish winter traditions of families enjoying the outdoors in the snowy forests under the magical northern lights, and gathering around the fireplace to warm up in the cozy atmosphere of their winter cabins.
