The Happy Prints

Marimekko’s flagship store blends fashion, home decor and cafe culture.

Marimekko’s first lifestyle concept store at Ion Orchard will lift shoppers’ mood. Comprising retail and cafe, the store by iconic Finnish design house is a bright and cheery space filled with its signature bold prints and joyful designs.

The brand is on a mission to “bring joy to everyday life through its unique design language”. Find vibrant and colourful products – Ready- to-Wear apparel, bags and accessories – that incorporate contemporary Nordic aesthetics in the 1,829-square-feet retail section.

Making an impact is the Fall/Winter 2023 collection that celebrates architecture-inspired prints and archetype silhouettes inspired by iconic architects. The geometric cuts and oversized patterns might be a little loud for some, but are nonetheless head-turners.

The home furnishing section comes complete with kitchen utensils, plates, glassware and other products that convey a Nordic lifestyle. If you are not sure about them, pop over to the cafe next door to “try” them out.

The cafe, which serves as a showroom, welcomes shoppers with its equally charming interior such as long bench seating covered with Marimekko’s signature Unikko print and colourful birch wood chairs. It’s a comfortable place to enjoy a cuppa alongside a selection of cakes, tarts and pies.

Marimekko flagship store and cafe is at #B1-12, Ion Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, Singapore 238801.
