I am looking for a gift and thought a Russian label T-shirt or something like this would be good.

Well, thinking about this and really start to like the idea, I realised, I do not know any Russian fashoin label/ designer and of course I got no clue where to buy.

Anybody could help?


Sorry in wrong forum ... Still too early. Should not post in the morning. Ignore this, will post the same in Information.
BTW: Any idea how to move the thing. I can edit, not delete and not move ....

Try Valentin Yudashkin or Slava Zaitsev. These are really trendy

Yudashkin, I dont know. Zaitsev, I had a look. But I saw more kind of Haute Cutoure staff and I am looking more for younger/ hip things.
Rather a t-shirt than a dress.

Russian fashion is an extreme sport, garish couture all the way. Good luck finding a t-shirt.

Have you tried MeXX? They seem to cater to a younger set and their prices are a bit more realistic. Honestly don't know if their labels are actually Russian, though.

MeXX is not really Russian. Something you can get anywhere in ... Europe at least.
I was hoping for some hip designers, having a small shop attached to their atelier. Something I can impress with. Its a gift. Want to show up of course.

Should be somewhere. Cloths are important to the girls here (and anywhere else in the world ...). Some of should make them ...

Does it have to be a t-shirt? My mom-in-law has a friend in Orenburg who can get Orenburg cashmere MUCH cheaper than what you'll find out at Ismaelovo. And you definitely won't find this type/quality of cashmere in the US, not without spending an entire paycheck.

Let me know what your timeline is, though, as it could take a couple of weeks to get something here to Moscow.

Does not have to be a t-shirt. And timing is flexible. There are birthdays, Christmas, Jubilees and many other occasions.
But is cashmere hip? Ladies, pls advice.

Batman,

you might want to check this link (http://tvoe.ru/). - This is "TVOE" - one of Russian teenagers' most popular brend. T-shirts and so on...loads of stuff.

Good luck!

Oggi is Russian and reasonably priced but their sizing is incomprehensible. I have bought clothes there. Sizes like 170/84. This is nearly impossible to translate into American sizes. Better you will shop somewhere that does the S, M, L thing. Unfortunately no Russian clothiers have adopted this method.

Good luck.

TVOE is an adapted american brand, not originally russian, can't remember the oginal name tho, but it's true

Thank you all.
Will try to do some shopping tomorrow and see if I can find something.

Still have the feeling it remains difficult. Okhotni Ryad was not exactly what I was hoping for. Still searching for this hip atelier/ shop thing where young ambitious designer selling stuff which will be hip next year.

Maybe I go for cashmere then :-)
