My favourite designer at Marimekko was Annika Rimala. She started as their children’s clothing designer and then became their chief designer from 1960-1982. I really like the Linjavitta dress (1967) – it has a gorgeous simplicity and asymmetric design that makes it timeless. She is famous for the Tasaraita deisgn otherwise known as the stripey jersey. http://www.marimekko.fi/eng/clothes/classics/tasaraita
