In unconditional acceptance of an ideology, often invented by one person, in subjection to a set of strict rules, participating in rituals, sometimes having a radical or even criminal character, the masses of people find a feeling of mutual assistance and ownership. The mass distribution of cults, their ideas and practices is impressive. Just like subcultures with their their limited circle of followers, with their own values and methods relate to global culture — new religious associations (sects) are in opposition to the main culture-forming religion of a country or region. At the same time, global culture often draw upon new elements that have the potential for wide distribution in subcultures striving to separate itself, eventually making them widespread. The emergence of non-traditional religious, as well as cultural movements is often a reaction to the crisis of the foundations of modern civilization. Belonging to a sect, as well as belonging to a subculture, is participation in the circle of the chosen ones, enthusiasts who are confident that they know how an ideal society should be arranged, or who are ready to fully trust the leader in this matter. Followers of non-traditional movements don’t wait for the formation of the new world, but live in it, creating a society in society. In this regard, their courage can be envied.

In 2018 we went to Georgia, where we met Tamuna Karumidze – the founder of the TAMRA brand, David – a local party expert and street artist Lamb, who painted sheep all over Tbilisi. We immediately fell in love with the young culture of Georgia and we wanted to consolidate this mutual sympathy with a small joint collection with the local community. On June 12th we will present a joint drop with TAMRA. Now watch the video from our trip.

Euthanasia Sport is a tattoo community that brought together the founders of minimal and primitive styles in the modern world tattoo culture. The rejection of originality, complexity and diversity in favor of clarity and recognizable forms is perhaps the main principle laid down by the founder of Euthanasia, Slava Kononov, into the creative activity of the community. Although all the artists of Euthanasia are united by this desire to overthrow the canons and destroy the style in its classical sense, with a more thoughtful viewing of their works the fact that each of them has a unique style becomes apparent.

In fashion industry the term «replica» is usually understood as a method — to get inspired by high art of the past. We tried to erase a line between creating an object of fashion and an object of art. We tried to present the collection as a piece of art, as an event, as a way of depicting reality and the inner world of the artist through the use of artistic images.

The collection Final Fantasy was based on notions of sci-fi, rave culture and the idea of creative potential of human fantasy. Instead of regular lookbook we created an experimental zine in collaboration with Russian photographer and collage artist Anton Reva. Anton has worked on the zine through every stage, from taking the photos to endless post processing, using completely analogue techniques many of which he has developed himself, and some such as working simultaneously with ice and fire specifically for our collaboration.

Kiev is unique in its dynamics. As well as its inhabitants, the city has unrepeatable energy, so powerful that it spreads far beyond its boundaries.

The main theme of the collection was the equality between all the people. There can be no reason for confidence in one's own superiority over others - just like there is no reason to worship anyone. Anyone can only rely on his own strength, live only by his own ideals. We all born and die equal.
