Marimekko for Target hits stores and web

Target debuted its much anticipated Marimekko collection Sunday with home, patio, outdoor play, and women and girls’ clothing in four colorways: black and white, blue/black/white, primary, and warm.

So now mom and daughter can match outfits on the street or in the pool. Swimsuits can match tableware as well as rafts and paddles. And sportswear can echo dishtowels, placemats, and even your child’s tent and sleeping bag.

All joking aside, the exclusive designs for Target are everything graphic and fun that the Finnish designer is known for. Each colorway juggles at least nine patterns, and many patterns show up in multiple colorways. The collection itself would provide designer wannabes with a great study in pattern mixing.

If this collection is like other Target design collaborations, it will sell out in stores and online quickly and show up priced much higher on ebay and Amazon Marketplace shops. So check out this sampling, snap up what you can’t live without at a price that won't break the bank, and party on.


Warm up to ‘warm’ colorway, featuring 13 prints.

My picks


I admit to a preference for all products “warm,” and my second favorite colorway is “primary.” Seems like I can never get enough color. Within those colorways, here are my favorite items:

Target

This uber-cute 4-piece bamboo serving set in "warm" for only $29.99 has me singing in hot pink melamine and bamboo. I’m not exactly sure why I like it so much, other than it’s so darn cute how all the smaller pieces combine on the larger tray. Notice how even the bamboo has a pattern.

Target

I love the "warm" rectangular serving tray, too, at just $19.99. That rad banded pattern it sports is called “Meteori.”


Target

The 4-count salad plates in "primary," just $19.99, have me thinking TROPICAL. VACATION. NOW.
