Last week, Marimekko presented its Spring/Summer 2011 fashion collection at Helsinki’s wholesale flower market, a vast building near the harbor where most imported flowers land first. Pathways created with masses of potted plants, and summer-dreamy music by Matti Pentikäinen, gave a minimalist background for the season’s collection designed by Mika Piirainen and Noora Niinikoski.The location and the flowers have historical significance to the Finnish company that just celebrated its 60th anniversary. In the same neighborhood, Marimekko’s first printing workshop produced the company’s first, bold floral patterns, many of which are still in production. Tuija Seipell
