Marimekko held its traditional public, open-air summer fashion show at the Esplanade Park on Friday.

Thousands of people, it seemed, gathered in the park around the runway to observe the latest collection, which is inspired by water colors and shades of pastel.

Reds and navy colors, as well as pops of orange and yellow spice up the collection.
