TOUCH ME

As part of our ongoing partnership with LGBTQ+ organisation QUEERCIRCLE, we commissioned photographer Jeff Hahn to capture a series of portraits of queer artists and activists wearing our ‘Touch Me’ scarf, designed in collaboration with Jakob Rowlinson - each in their own inimitable style.

Alongside the images, taken outside the new QUEERCIRCLE space in the Greenwich Design District, London, we sat down with each of the portrait sitters to find out about their individual experiences, their creative processes and activism, and what Pride means to them.

Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Pride in the UK, proceeds from the sale of the ‘Touch Me’ collection will go to support QUEERCIRCLE's ambitions arts, culture and social action programme.
