marimekko mariessu apron dress dark red, red
The vintage Mariessu apron is made of cotton in the dark red and red Piccolo pattern. The apron has short butterfly sleeves, a metal button closure in the back and a ruffled hem. There are patch pockets in the front and the apron comes with a detachable belt.
In her first year at Marimekko in 1953, designer Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi created Piccolo, a striped fabric painted with freehand brushstrokes. Three years later, a Piccolo print shirt called Jokapoika became the first piece of Marimekko menswear to hit the stores and the streets.
