Marimekko, the Finnish company famous for its unique textile designs and bright printed cotton fabrics, has also produced clothing in other fabrics, like this burgundy and black 1960s wool dress. This stylish 60s shift dress has what was, at the time, a very modern fit, loose and boxy with no need for "old fashioned" confining undergarments. The clean lines of the dress are left uncluttered, even by any visible fastenings: it has three snaps behind the off-center front pleat and a single snap and two hooks at the narrow stand collar. The dress unsnaps down to the level of the bust darts only and has no other openings, so it should be loose-fitting enough to pull over the head. It is unlined and in excellent condition. The forward-looking, ultra-modern, minimalist design of this 1960s Marimekko dress makes it a true vintage classic, and yet it is also an easy piece to wear without looking too obviously vintage in style.
