The adidas x Marimekko collaboration through the eyes of Satu Maaranen 

Ever wondered how Marimekko’s brand collaborations work in practice? Let our Head Designer Satu Maaranen share her story as part of the design team! 

Marimekko’s Satu Maaranen has had the pleasure of working in the adidas x Marimekko collaboration since the beginning. As a part of the cross-company design team, she discusses the collections’ themes, patterns, and the color palette.

The highlights so far include the initial face-to-face meeting when Marimekko’s team traveled to the adidas’ headquarters in Germany with a suitcase jam-packed with archive Marimekko dresses, carrying with them a priceless folder of original Unikko (poppy) color samples.

The Marimekko and Adidas teams hit it off straight away – like the collaboration was written in the stars! 

The fourth collection from adidas x Marimekko is now available. Learn more.
