Marimekko Fashion Show

The first time we went to watch the Marimekko yearly Fashion Show in Helsinki in the Esplandi Park was two years ago, in spring 2015. Then it  was the 25th time to be held. Last year, for some reason, we didn’t go there. Today is a such a glorious, warm, sunny day for an outdoor event. Plus 26 degrees Celsius. The event is free of charge and open for everyone.

Marimekko Fashion Show

The annual Marimekko Summer Fashion Show in the center of Helsinki gathers thousands of citizens to the Esplanade park. The event is open to the public and is the opening of the summer season. This was my first time going there. It was so enjoyable. Beautiful dresses. Great weather.

Marimekko T-shirts

I tend to wear my T-shirts till they are totally worn out. I literally mean that. It now was time for new ones. So once I was in Herttoniemi on Monday (where the Cherry tree park is) I popped in to the Marimekko Factory Outlet to buy a T-shirt. I bought two. Of course the same model I already have used for years in different color combinations. It’s an “Ilma”. A classic striped t-shirt with a boatneck and three quarter-length sleeves. The other one in dark green and black stripes and the other one in the classic red and white stripes. I’d loved to have the other in blue and white but unfortunately there were no available in my size . Nice, they were 30% off. My husband thinks I’m weird. He wondered why always buy the same Ilma shirt. Well, it’s because they are comfy, good quality and I’m so used to them.
