Marimekko Debuts on West Coast
November 13, 2012
Finnish textile and clothing design house Marimekko has opened its first West Coast store in Palo Alto, Calif. The new store, located in the Stanford Shopping Center, opened on Oct. 25. The retailer also plans to open a 5,000-sq.-ft. flagship in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Nov. 15. Located on the corner of Canon Drive and Brighton Way, the Beverly Hills store will feature the entire range of Marimekko products, from signature fashions to home furnishings and textiles, as well as a showroom. The two store openings are part of Marimekko’s continuing growth initiative in North America. In the past year, the brand opened stores in New York, Boston and Toronto. Markimekko also operates a store in Cambridge, Mass., a retailer-owned store in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood and various in-store shops at select Crate & Barrel locations.
