The Design Collab of 2016: Marimekko for Target

What we love about American retailer Target is all the creative collaborations they roll out in partnership with various designers, from the cheery Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection which sold out like hot cakes to the recent WhoWhatWear collab that had us wanting to dress up to the nines like street style regulars.

This time around, Target has collaborated with Marimekko, the world-recognized design house from Finland to come up with a one-of-a-kind collection spanning multiple categories including women’s and girls’ apparel, swimwear, accessories, outdoor decor, furniture and more! The Marimekko for Target collection drops April 17 in stores and online, and here’s why you need to ShopandBox items from this collab when the time comes:


Famous for its original prints and colours, Marimekko was founded in 1951 by Armi Raita and is known for its unconventional, vivid designs that have revolutionized the tradition of textile printing and clothing in Finland. Marimekko’s prints have been personally worn by iconic names, from Jackie Kennedy in 1960 to Sarah Jessica Parker at present day. Take one look at their site and you’d find textiles, fashion, and household goods smattered with colourful cheery prints to make an outstanding statement.

Inspired by the Finnish brand’s home base in Helsinki, Target’s design team noticed that the sun stays out until midnight during summertime in the country, hence a sense of “eternal summer” that echoes throughout the collection, with hopes of inspiring people to play and spend time outdoors.


What you can expect from this fun-filled design collab? More than 200 playful pieces that also include paddle board, inflatables, hammocks, parachutes, and swimsuits—you’d be summer-ready by the time you receive your ShopandBox package featuring all these items from the USA! Better yet, most of the pieces from this collection are priced under USD50—it ranges between USD8 for a sunscreen to USD500 for a paddleboard, so ShopandBox away as you please!
