Third collection between the two parties include products made with sustainable materials.
March 16, 2022
Finnish design house, Marimekko, and adidas reunite for a third limited-edition collaboration collection. The playful and expressive spring/summer 2022 drop continues to blend Marimekko’s art of printmaking with adidas’ expertise in performance wear. The season’s hero prints are Unikko, Marimekko’s flower print from 1964 by Maija Isola, as well as the Marimekko logo, which the company lends as a print in a collaboration collection for the first time.
The collection spans from sports apparel to footwear, and as in the previous two collections, the spring/summer 2022 drop embodies Marimekko’s and adidas’ shared commitment to implement sustainable solutions, with key pieces from the collection made in part with recycled materials to help reduce environmental impact.
“We are honored to reunite with adidas for this third limited-edition collaboration,” says Rebekka Bay, creative director, Marimekko. “Our iconic floral print Unikko and our Marimekko logo are given a whole new dimension with vivid primary colors on adidas’ innovative sportswear. Our lifelong mission at Marimekko is to bring joy to people’s everyday lives, and we hope that these bold, playful yet functional products will inspire and energize many.”
“This collab is all about fun, functional and beautiful sportswear that embodies the shared design values between adidas and Marimekko,” says Aimee Arana, senior vice president, sportswear & training, adidas Global. “On our continued journey to make sports a space for all, we hope this latest drop encourages the community to embrace the wellbeing of movement, from the studio to the street.”
The third adidas x Marimekko collection will be available from April onward, on Adidas.com and at select adidas stores and retailers around the world.
