Marimekko & Banana Republic

I've been a fan of Marimekko for as long as I can remember.  The vibrant colors and crazy patterns and distinctly Scandinavian look is something I love.  Our guest bedroom sports a Marikemmo duvet and I have a few cute kitchen items as well.  Starting this weekend in select stores and on May 22nd online, you can purchase items from the Marimekko & Banana Republic collaboration.  Thanks to B for letting me know about this partnership - I love the long polka dot skirt (probably not great unless you are tall) and the shift dress.  The complete collection is 25 pieces and the prices will range from $39 to $149.  Check out this piece in Forbes for an interesting take on the cultural aspect of the collection.
