New Yorkers still have a few months to wait for the opening of Marimekko's flagship, which debuts in the Flatiron District this October. But we can make the time go faster with a preview of the Finnish textile giant's fall 2011 collection. Check out some of the little dresses and bright bags above, and head to our sister site Curbed National for a glimpse of the fall housewares.
Marimekko recently wrapped the entire storefront in a loud, cheerful print designed by in-house artist Aino-Maija Metsola, who was inspired by everyday life in Manhattan. After the jump, we've got the first look at a video of the art project in action.
