The Vihne t-shirt is made of soft cotton jersey in the Tasaraita pattern and it features a small printed poppy flower from the Unikko pattern on the front. The t-shirt has a ribbed neckline and short loose sleeves. This item is made in a men’s fit, which gives it more room around the chest and more length in the sleeves and hem.
When jeans started to become increasingly popular among both women and men, Annika Rimala wanted to design a collection of cotton jersey clothes to go with jeans. For all denim lovers, regardless of age, size or gender. That’s how Marimekko’s first cotton jersey collection was born. Evenly striped, expressing equality.
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.
