The Marimekko Iloisen shirt is made of cotton voile in the Mini Unikko pattern. The shirt has a high standing collar that continues into wide bands at the back. The bands are tied into a bow at the neck, above a deep V-neck. The voluminous sleeves are dropped at the shoulders and they have gathers at the shoulders and elastic gathers at the sleeve ends.
Marimekko’s famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity.
