Cloak "Vladimir", Stutterheim
Typically, the manufacturer of waterproof raincoats, boots and bags Stutterheim names the developments after the atmospheric Swedish locations (or the places where the brand founder Alexander Stutterheim was most often caught by heavy rains): the commune of Tidaholm, the city of Vimmerby or the island of Arholm. However, this year the Stutterheim assortment added a rainbow-print raincoat, christened with the Russian name Vladimir. In honor of whom exactly the thing is named, one can only guess. The creator himself describes it as follows: “I have problems with the way Russia treats the gay community. Therefore, I would like to show provocatively and ironically how, in my opinion, a real Vladimir should look like”. Provocation and humor come in one set with altruism: 10% of the cost of a rainbow cloak goes to an international LGBTQ + organization.

Bag "Nina", Gabriela Hearst
A rounded bag from Gabriela Hearst, reminiscent of Meller chocolate, has a particular muse - American singer, arranger and composer Nina Simone. However, those who brought real success to the accessory were Anne Hathaway, Brie Larson, Demi Moore, Natalia Vodianova and Miroslava Duma, as well as Megan Markle, who appeared with him several times (including in the last round as a royal personage) … Each year, there are more than a hundred names on the waiting list for the Nina bag: Gabriela Hearst does not sell it in a boutique or online, placing an order exclusively by email.

Shoes "Anya", Saint Laurent
The glory of the fashion house Saint Laurent has been made by its ambassadors at all times - be it human rights activist Bianca Jagger, French aristocrat Lulu de la Falaise or actress Zoe Kravitz. Their names are immortalized not only in historical photo archives and modern advertising campaigns, but also in the names of the shoes of the fashion house. Among the bright, provocative and memorable couples - to match their famous muses - are Anja monochromatic leather pumps that delight Russian clients. However, they are dedicated not to the Russian woman, but to the Polish woman Anya Rubik - the model whom the creative director of Saint Laurent Anthony Vaccarello invites to almost all the shooting and screenings.

Irina bag, The Kooples
The personal item also marks the long-term cooperation of the Russian model Irina Shayk and the French brand The Kooples. Moreover, the girl not only inspired the designers, but also took part in the development: the Irina bag with a rounded shape with a handle to match and with a key-lock is made in three sizes (maxi, medium and nano) and in a dozen colors (from bright yellow to deep blue). In addition to her, the collection of The Kooples includes bags by Emily, Stella and Barbara - in honor of models Emily Ratajkowski, Stella Maxwell and Barbara Palvin.
