      You may have seen Marimekko’s iconic poppy print, the “Unikko”, when you were souvenir-hunting in Hong Kong or window shopping in Frankfurt.

      Designed by artist Maija Isola in 1964, the Finnish brand’s signature poppy has been gaining a cult-following ever since.

      Now Vancouverites have a chance to get their hands on limited-edition apparel and accessories branded with this popular print.

      Marimekko Kioski, the brand’s first streetwear collection, has launched exclusively at Canadian retailer gravitypope, which is available in Vancouver (2203-2205 West 4th Avenue), Edmonton, Calgary, and Toronto locations, as well as online.

      Products at the in-store kiosks include unisex pieces like t-shirts, hoodies, caps, scrunchies, key rings, sneakers, socks, and tote bags, all featuring Marimekko’s highly recognizable patterns.

      Scroll through the photos below for a peek at the new collection.
