Russian: Comrade Kitsch

One of my big obsessions is Soviet Russia, especially the interesting kitsch items which came out of the communist block. Thi is why I am in love with the new Fall/Winter 2009/10 collection by Denis Simachev. I love the faded 80s jeans, the Soviet winter hat, oversized lapels and the kitsch and colourful designs on the sweaters and T shirts.  Be inspired !
