Marimekko: What's Missing?
In reflecting on this collab, it seems to me as if Target could have produced more items, seeing they were already teaming up with Marimekko in licensing some of their iconic prints. For example, some of you wrote me that you wish they had produced more "wearable" clothing (appropriate for work) vs. concentrating only on beachwear. Likewise, I wish they had produced a candle (like the glass ones shown here from the Missoni collab) in each of the featured Marimekko prints.
On the flipside, perhaps Target purposely limited the amount of items in this collection in order to make the items more "covetable"? For instance: I'm glad Marimekko didn't follow Lilly Pulitzer's lead with cheaper items like the printed nail files; remember how many of those were left over last year?? How about you, readers? Is there a product you feel is "missing" and wish Target had included in this collab?
