VOLCHOK
Streetwear 
Russia, 2014

The brand was founded by Vasily Volchok-Rusakovich in St. Petersburg in 2014 and is guided by the principle of creating reasonably priced comfortable clothes. It's well-suited to fans of Gosha Rubchinskiy with its ability to pull inspiration from Russian street and youth culture.

The fierce aesthetic of the brand helps the emerging generation of Russian Youth to define their voice among the bleak surroundings and lingering boredom.
From rave culture to alternative local esthetic, their latest collection is co-created with famous street artists. Drawings of birds and of other creatures and symbols fronted T-shirts and decorated pant legs, tapping into the designer's dark storytelling, which in the past had been used to express the underused voice of Russian youth.

E404
Streetwear
Russia, 2014

Founded by Artem Bryukhov, E404's identity is based on streetwear combined with references to the primitivism art movement, Artem’s favorite TV shows from his teenagehood and un-bedazzled but not so trivial things that his eyes accidentally catch in everyday life.

e404 is a story told from a very particular perspective – like a child speaks about what he truly feels using very simple but clear form of language. The designer follow the path that was well-trodden by naïve art artsts, who were never afraid to use bold color palette supported by childlike mise-en-scènes. e404 is not about complicated design – it’s about bright colouring and contrasting prints inspired by the works of Kazemir Malevich, Alexander Rodchenko, Natalia Goncharova and Timur Novikov. The silhouettes are plain and a little bit rustic: hoodies and sweatshirts, training pants and loosy t-shirts.
