Crate & Barrel has created a Marimekko shop-in-shop at the Chicago location, and I was invited today to check it out. Everything was just as bright and fun as you’d imagine. There were a lot of blues and greens, but you know me… drawn to pink every time.
Marimekko likes to reduce waste and reuse as much as possible. We made necklaces out of jersey scraps, leftover from the manufacturing of their clothing.
I also modified the necklace I was wearing (thanks to Barri’s genius input).
There will eventually be twenty of these shops across the country over the next three years, but everything is available online too. Well, everything except my necklaces. And the Marimekko fabric by the yard. (Oh, how I loved the fabric.)
