Bright Marimekko design has returned to the large windows of the legendary Design Research Building in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Design Research (D/R), the famous retailer and importer that closed its doors in 1978, had a significant role in Marimekko’s history by bringing the brand to the US market in 1959. It was at D/R that Jacqueline Kennedy purchased the Marimekko dress she was wearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1960. Read more.

Note: Vintage pieces from the 50s through the 70s are pictured. These are not from the current collection. Visit our store to see current Marimekko products available.

    Thanks for all your great photos! I had a chance to see the Design Research retrospective yesterday. What a great example of that Mid-Century design was like back in the mid-century – so fresh and exciting!

    I have just finished ironing a group of Marimekko dreses that I am sending my daughter. I have included one of Marimekko’s most beautiful dresses, which is in one of your windows. It is a basket weave print in orange, purple and rose red. Long in the back and short in front. It is a work of art! (1969).A privilege to have worn and owned.

    Large collection of vintage Marimekko boldly printed cotton dresses can be found in the unreserved Jewelry/Silver/Couture sale at Rago Auction on April 10, 2011. Most have not been worn. Most bear the Design Research label, some have tags. Just in time for Spring!
