Bumble and König Souvenir join forces to celebrate female artists
#Campaign – Bumble and König Souvenir announce the launch of their Berlin Art Week 2018 souvenirs made for chilly autumn days. Rooted in empowering individuals, in particular women, to go after what they want, Bumble teamed up with König Souvenir to give an ode to female artists. For the special occasion, Bumble and König Souvenir have designed two merchandise pieces consisting of a long sleeve t-shirt and a soccer scarf. The focal point of the art souvenirs is one of Kreuzberg’s most famous architectural landmarks—the St. Agnes Church, a monumental former church built in the 1960s in the brutalist style.
The long sleeve has a simple fit and shows a photo of St. Agnes church made by Roman März. In addition to the long sleeve, Bumble x König Souvenir designed a soccer scarf as a classic accessory piece in minimal black and white. The merchandise items had a debut as part of an exclusive invite-only event inside the imposing gallery space of St. Agnes on the pre-opening day of the Berlin Art Week 2018 hosting a private preview. The campaign shoot was done by Berlin-based talents.
