Frolicking in the woods in Finland!

In 1964, Life magazine sent photographer Tony Vaccaro to Finland to photograph the work of Marimekko. The fashion house, known for it’s bright, color-blocked fabric in geometric and floral prints, is one of the country’s most famous exports. Vaccaro’s images of models at play in the Finnish countryside epitomized the company’s irreverent, optimistic spirit. Those photographs are still referenced by the brand’s creative team today—and you could do worse than to use them for your own early fall style inspiration.
















Vaccaro is now 95 years old and though he’s retired, he works daily out of the Tony Vaccaro Studio in Long Island City. His photos of Marimekko are currently on display at the brand’s New York City flagship at 200 5th Avenue.
