Family Affair at Mimi Berlin

Family Affair at Mimi Berlin: Double portraits

A project by Beja von Bis and Herr Kaldenbach to showcase the Close-Up Family of necklaces designed by Mimi Berlin. What is Ms Von Bis doing, you ask of us, well she takes of her cardigan because she’s just to hot in her twinset. We made this series a while ago but never posted them, we, at Mimi Berlin, can’t even remember why we didn’t.

From left to right double portraits, photographed by Herr Kaldenbach, of Beja von Bis wearing Tilly, Virgil, Pepper and the ‘Close-Up” set of necklaces. Click images to enlarge and click here to shop the ‘Close-Up” set of necklaces.

Purple Project

Purple Project

Purple Project is an art project, a collaboration between UK based illustrator/artist Petra Lunenburg and designer/photographer Baukje Bies, who is based in The Netherlands.

These two women found each other in the exceptional love they share for the artist formerly known as Prince (may he rest in peace). With this purple royalty in mind they created illustrations, photo’s and digital photo collages: “an ode to the musical legacy and style of the greatest artist of all time in this genre”. The first outing of the Purple Project collaboration is captured in 17 artworks on paper. (as seen above) You can follow the Purple Project on Instagram: @purpleproject_art, to see all the images they created. You can order the set of 17 cards, sized A5, by sending a message to: purple_project_art@outlook.com for only €39,99

Headless Girls: Circus Legends on Film

Headless Girls

Mimi Berlin’s Circus legends came to life! Meet the Headless Girls in the photoseries and the short movie ‘Conversations 1 ‘at in the park’ made by Daan/Jansen at Mimi Berlin.

Dutch duo Daan / Jansen collaborated on the photo series ‘Headless Girls’ for Mimi Berlin. They imagined two women who used to work being a circus act in the beginning of the 20th century. These “Headless Girls” meet again after decades, at a park, to have a conversation about the past.
