Swedish sports fashion brand Björn Borg has initiated a global partnership together with actor Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad, Robocop) starting at in 2020. The long-term collaboration between the Swedish sportswear brand and the Hollywood actor will include campaigns with Joel Kinnaman as the new global face of all product categories. The collaboration aims to inspire more people to work out and keep active by highlighting the many benefits of exercising; a common goal that both parties share.
Henrik Bunge, CEO at Björn Borg says, ”We strongly believe in Joel’s ability to inspire both men and women to start exercising and consequently feel better. Together with our own and Joel’s belief that training makes people become better versions of themselves, we have found a natural and perfect match. We’re very happy and proud to involve him in our work, our culture and our common goals”
Joel Kinnaman said of the partnership, “I quickly realised that we had common values and views of training – that it is a key in order to feel better in life. The fact that Björn Borg also has a mandatory sports hour every Friday showed me that they are serious about their ambition and their goals. To stay in shape both mentally and physically has always been important to me and is now a big part of my everyday life as an actor. Thus, it feels natural for me to join Björn Borg in their mission to inspire people to exercise in order to feel better”.
The first campaign with Joel is expected to go live in January 2020 for the SS20 season. Watch this space for more info as we get it.
