From Marimekko:

The collection kicks off in May, with four Marimekko-patterned skins. The collection will expand in the fall and include two Marimekko-patterned sleeves. The accessories offer Surface users an opportunity to customize the look of their devices and add a pop of Marimekko's joyful design language into their everyday lives. The collection will be available at Microsoft stores worldwide and

While they won't appeal to everyone, Marimekko says its sleeves and skins will sport some of the firm's "most iconic prints and modern classics." The skins, for example, will be available in the firm's "Unikko" (seen above), "Siirtolapuutarha" and "Räsymatto" patterns. Sleeves, on the other hand, will come in "Unikko" and "Räsymatto" patterns.

In any case, if Marimekko's designs have your interest piqued, you'll be able to get your hands on Surface skins at Microsoft Stores starting later in May.
