In Kiev you will find a lot of shopping centers and shops with international clothes brands. But to find modern inexpensive youthful clothing, which could be labeled “made in Kiev” and which would adequately represent Ukraine at the international market is not so easy. Buying a t-shirt with a low quality print “I Love Kyiv” to commemorate the visit to the city shows bad manners I think. Locals definitely do not wear that.
For those who want to bring back real Ukrainian clothes (not folk) there is a better option – to visit the store Syndicate. This brand is already available in several European capitals. But the first store of the young company settled deep in the streets of center of Kiev’s Pechersk district.
There is an excellent selection of jeans, hoodies, caps with original designs and authentic prints. This is where you can pick up a great thing that is good quality and at the same time can be considered a good souvenir and keepsake of Kiev.
To find the showroom and workshop itself, you will have some work to do, it is located deep in Pechersk near the metro station “Klovskaya.” However, the reward for the winner would be a great, good quality T-shirt with a classy design that will surely remind you about your visit to Ukraine.
