Earlier in the year, it was announced that Banana Republic was collaborating for a limited-edition line with Marimekko capsule. The official collection is launching on May 22nd.

The 27-piece range will infuse the Finnish house’s conspicuous prints-dotted Jurmo, black-and-white Kivet, and floral-inspired Siirtolapuutarha-with BR’s signature silhouettes.

The project was inspired by “Marimekko’s artistic approach to print making,” which involves a myriad of artists creating visually compelling and distinct standouts,” according to Melloney Birkett, BR‘s vice president of women’s design.

“What makes Marimekko unique is the use of color, the use of pattern,” added BR’s director of print and color Rick Calvo. “There’s a feeling about it that you know it’s Marimekko, even though there are so many different artists that help contribute to the collection. It just feels so together.”

The full Banana Republic x Marimekko collection will arrive online and in stores on Thursday, May 22nd, with prices running from $39.50 to $140.
