If you’re struggling to find a perfect dress at mass market stores, consider turning to one of the brands rooted in cultural heritage of the past. All of their clothes are made with natural materials and will allow you to stand out in a subtle way. 

Among our favorites in this category are MOREDRESS, which offers adorable dresses with boho influences, and Skromnoye obayaniye (“Discreet Charm”). The latter brand’s name speaks for itself – they create a wide range of charming and modest clothes for women.

In case you prefer on-site shopping, opt for one of the St. Petersburg-based brands, such as Surepka (“Winter Cress”), inspired by traditional Russian clothes of the 19th century, and KISSA MARKET – primarily a selective vintage store that also sells several custom-made items.

You can find all the more unconventional clothes, such as fantastic kimonos made with nettle fabric, at Fjäll – all pieces by this brand are customized to fit each client. 

Meanwhile, perfectly minimalistic eco-friendly bags are to be found at Maitri. As for slightly more out-there designs, turn to Perm-based Take the BAG.

The list could go on and on. It’s mostly fashion and beauty products that happen to be in our spotlight today, but undoubtedly, there are many more categories to cover. So, stay tuned, and be sure to celebrate the upcoming International Women’s Day!
