“As a Finnish native I have grown up with Marimekko and have always held their designs close to my heart. The opportunity to collaborate with them, a brand who shares the same values of combining functionality and style whilst using more sustainable materials and methods, felt like such an exciting and natural opportunity. The collection spans many sports and outdoor activities and truly combines the best of our expertise in sports performance fabrics, with the bold and playful prints of Marimekko. It’s an unmissable collection designed to inspire the inner explorer in all,” says Josefine Aberg, VP of design at adidas.
