Heart of Moscow, a popular company mainly producing souvenirs from the Russian capital, has launched its first collection of metal pins dedicated to St Petersburg as part of its new Pinpinpin.it brand.
The new line features 20 symbols of Russia’s second city, including the Admiralty building, Rostral columns, griffins from Bank Bridge, St Isaac’s Cathedral and the Aurora cruiser. Among the other pins available are a seagull, Dostoevsky and Pushkin.
Priced at 300 rubles (approx. US$4.5) each, the pins are available to buy on the brand’s website, in St Petersburg itself at the State Russian Museum and the Museum of Arcade Games, as well as a number of shops around the city.
Heart of Moscow has previously launched collaborative collections together with Gorky Park, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and Moscow Zoo, among others. Earlier this year, the brand released a collection of metal pins dedicated to the masterpieces of the Russian avant-garde, showcasing fragments of works from the collection of the State Tretyakov Gallery.
