Strawberry Season

Marimekko strawberry dressMarimekko strawberry toteMarimekko marketplace shirtStrawberry Moon
There’s something so relatable about a strawberry. Maybe because they’re the only fruit to wear its seeds on the outside. They’re tart to start, then sweet as can be, but be careful – they bruise easily. 

This season, Marimekko, renowned Finnish design house known for their original prints, took to the strawberry to celebrate the summer. Strawberries are playful, youthful and eternal, much like Idun herself. 

Shop: Lenella Mansikka Dress

First, Marimekko’s Mansikka (strawberry) dress, a classic A-line dress with a V-neck and a front and back central seam. The dress has a wrinkled look and comes with a fabric pouch, making it a breeze to travel with, since there’s no need to be precious about folding it. Wear it for a backyard dinner, or at a more formal celebration, cheerings to anything and anyone. 

Shop: Mansikka Smartbag

Farmer’s markets, here we come. This lightweight and beyond sweet shopping bag also features Marimekko’s Mansikka (strawberry) pattern. It folds up neatly into a small pouch, so you can always keep it in your purse or car. No more excuses for not having a reusable bag on you. 

Shop: Kalliola Pieni Tori Shirt

Marimekko’s Tori (marketplace) print is meant to capture the atmosphere of a vibrant fruit market. We’re inspired. We’re imagining wearing this to lunch on a patio with a glass of Riesling. Fits oversized, so size down for a more fitted look.

Strawberries
by Edwin Morgan

There were never strawberries
like the ones we had
that sultry afternoon
sitting on the step
of the open french window
facing each other
your knees held in mine
the blue plates in our laps
the strawberries glistening
in the hot sunlight
we dipped them in sugar
looking at each other
not hurrying the feast
for one to come
the empty plates
laid on the stone together
with the two forks crossed
and I bent towards you
sweet in that air
in my arms
abandoned like a child
from your eager mouth
the taste of strawberries
in my memory
lean back again
let me love you

let the sun beat
on our forgetfulness
one hour of all
the heat intense
and summer lightning
on the Kilpatrick hills

let the storm wash the plates

The taste of first love
is like a strawberry
mostly sweet
but sometimes sour
