Known for bright colors and great graphic prints, the Finnish company Marimekko gained fame in the 1960s and 1970s and continues to be popular today. Founded in 1951 by Viljo and Armi Ratia, Marimekko made a splash when Jacqueline Kennedy bought eight dresses to wear throughout the 1960 presidential campaign. The clothing is hailed for liberating women, as the silhouettes do not require stiff undergarments, stockings or heels. Crate and Barrel has a longstanding relationship with the label, utilizing their designs on textiles and as display backdrops in the stores.
Shown above is a 1960s graphic polka dot cotton dress with brown stripes, a trapeze style and bias drape train in the back. Visit 1stdibs for more information.
