I was delighted to come across this fashion spread in the January 1974 issue of Glamour magazine because, MARIMEKKO! The utterly fabulous and iconic Liidokki smock dress in the Kirjo print is modeled by the gorgeous Barbara Summers.
The dress was designed by Pentti Rinta in 1974, for the Marimekko Design Research label. The design has stood the test of time as Marimekko brought back some of their 1960s and 1970s iconic archival pieces for the spring/summer 2017 collection. The Liidokki dress was one of five styles that was reintroduced. It pretty much sold out immediately, which proves Marimekko’s style is timeless. I only wish that I would have gotten one!
