6 Ukrainian Brands We Love
All products on this page have been selected by our editorial team, however we may make commission on some products.
Fashion designer and photographer Vita Kin first took inspiration for her label from traditional Ukrainian embroidered garments called vyshyvankais. More recent collections are made up of relaxed silhouettes all featuring intricate appliqué patterns and folkloric embroidery. Each piece is crafted by hand in the Kyiv atelier, so the meticulous workmanship justifies the punchy price point.
This sustainable brand embraces the power and elegance of blazers. Each piece is made in Ukraine and embodies contemporary yet timeless design. STATEMENT N.9 believes bold fashion can transcend both seasons and occasions – expect expertly tailored pieces and a masculine-meets-feminine feel.
Anna October is a womenswear brand infused with femininity. Having studied pattern cutting and fine art before launching her eponymous label, Anna offers a line of unique and versatile pieces. This summer it’s the dresses we’re coveting – from an elevated take on pretty shirred styles to backless body-skimming silk slips.
Launched in 2014 by former fashion editors Kate Zubarieve and Asya Veresta, Sleeper is widely known for its unabashedly feminine, ethically crafted, high-quality pieces. Its nightwear – which is chic enough to double up as daywear – is made using luxurious and lightweight fabrics perfect for summer. Pretty shirred bodices and frill-cuffed sleeves are some of the brand’s signatures.
Kyiv-based Bevza is known for its clean silhouettes, expert tailoring and muted colour palette. Founder and creative director Svitlana Bevza is inspired by her Ukrainian heritage, fusing carefully considered materials and a designed-to-last ethos with eco-friendly printing techniques. No wonder Bevza is fast becoming an influencer favourite.
LES is a Kyiv-based womenswear brand founded by Ksenia Korolevich. With a graphic and minimalist aesthetic inspired by art and youth culture, LES is defined by its skin-skimming silhouettes, tailoring and attention to detail. If you’re looking for a strikingly simple dress or a statement bodysuit that combines asymmetric lines and cut-outs, LES will give you that design-led look.
