The launch: Marimekko Pop-Up and Café Takeover.

Why we love it: In a fun food-fashion crossover, Finnish lifestyle brand Marimekko has popped up at Holt Renfrew in Toronto and Vancouver for a limited time.

Part of an ongoing 60th anniversary celebration of the brand’s most iconic abstract floral print, called Unikko, the pop ups include a shopping space in each store featuring some of the brand’s pre-fall 2024 collection along with home goods designs such as plates, cups, coasters and more.

But this pop-up partnership goes beyond just fashion.

Through a partnership extended to Holts Café, the Finnish brand’s decor and floral graphics have been used around the café space. Plus, the chef teams have created a limited menu inspired by Finnish flavours.
