Marimekko presented their highly anticipated European Autumn Winter 2015 collection last week at Pix on Location in Alexandria, Sydney.

The collection was presented during a model presentation styled by Kelvin Harries. Silks, leather and wool were layered to created geometric lines and a relaxed aesthetic for each look.

The Autumn Winter collection was inspired by city architecture and the rhythm we live in today. It examines how elements of nature can inspire urban women today to find moments of empowerment and peace in their hectic everyday lives.

The fabrication includes iconic Marimekko prints with new designs, creating a visual continuum from the early years through to today.

The collection gives an indication of the direction in which Marimekko design is moving under the new Creative Director, Anna Teurnell. The Spring/Summer 2016 collection will be the first created entirely under her lead.

The contrast of graphic prints and colours juxtaposed with relaxed hair created by Philip Barwick, Redken 5th Avenue Hair Director, and clean minimalistic make up by Molly Oakland pays homage to the classic Marimekko look.
