If you’ve ever been lucky enough to visit the Marimekko concept store in Washington DC you’ve been inspired by the gorgeous bright colors and charming prints that have been defining the Marimekko brand since 1951. The Downtown Silver Spring Marimekko Concept Store is stocked with Marimekko® of Finland’s continuing classic fabrics as well as seasonal European fashion and accessory collections for men, women, and children. In addition to fabric finds, there are plenty of housewares, tabletop treasures, accessories, bedding and bath items and of course clothing and bags.
If you’re a fan of Marimekko and cannot afford the pink stilettos from Manolo Blahnik (at a cool $595 a pair), rest easy and hit your local H&M store tomorrow. Why? Because that’s when the Marimekko collection hits H&M! Using lots of prints from the ’50s through the ’70s, about 50 pieces will hit the shelves tomorrow. Ranging from skirts and dresses and some men’s apparel too, H&M welcomes Spring 2008 with this fun new fashion.

About this video: Natural personal care products are hardly a fleeting trend. According to a new survey sponsored by Burt’s Bees and conducted by TSC, a division of Yankelovich, more consumers are aware of the natural ingredients that go into personal care products than they were five years ago. A large percent of those surveyed, actually 60%, also thought the government or industry regulates natural personal care products—and almost 100 percent thought they should.
With the growing awareness of potentially harmful ingredients in personal care products, more are turning to natural products. Natural personal care company Burt’s Bees says they have the responsibility to help consumers fully understand what “natural” products are—and what they aren’t—for the good of their well-being and for the good of the environment. To do so, Burt’s Bees wants to set a natural standard—encouraging other companies to join—and together adopt one “natural” standard.
