Marimekko 2023 Kompositio Pilari Dress


The Kompositio dress is made of firm organic cotton twill, and it has a relaxed fit, a straight top, and a flared cut hem. The product contains 3% elastane. The dress features the Pilari pattern, an O-neck with a concealed zipper on the left shoulder, and voluminous three-quarter sleeves. The dress has side panels that continue into the sleeves, a waist seam, and side seam pockets.

Marimekko dresses are sewn using the whole width of the fabric, and therefore their appearance may vary. Each item is unique.

Antti Kekki’s pattern Pilari (pillar) draws inspiration from sculpture and figures and the light and shadows cast on their surface. Made using paper cutouts, the print design combines semicircles of different sizes and features a playful interplay between the two- and the three-dimensional, the abstract and concrete.
