Microsoft recently announced a collaboration with Finnish-based Marimekko for the Surface Pro. The accessories range from simple decorative skins to protective sleeves, and even a couple of Type Covers.
Founded in 1951, Marimekko is one well-known to the fashionistas of the world. Marimekko reportedly become popular when Jackie Kennedy starting wearing the dresses in the 1960's and even the show Sex and the City (1998) featured the famous patterns. Indeed, Unikko (poppy) is one of the most well-known designs to this day.
All of this sets the stage for these new Surface accessories made with Marimekko. While some prefer neutral colors, or dull "business black" at least Marimekko can appeal to those who want a chicer Surface appearance.
I managed to get my hands on the different stylings, and I must admit they do draw attention. (I'm using Siirtolapuutarha (walled garden) on my Surface Pro and Kaivo (well) for the Type Cover.)
While the Marimekko accessories are not cheap for those who want to make a fashion statement with some iconic patterns, Microsoft and Marimekko are making that happen.
