A jean with a name like Soviet would not come out of a country like South Africa, would it? Well, yes, and the peculiar name matches the company’s vibe, as well as its style. Jeans with a hole in the right place, a patch just so, a rip that screams style—all can be found if you make a union with Soviet. The growing brand also makes shirts, jackets and shorts, all of which have the ultra-trendy logo and a few surprises as well. A striped white leather jacket? Soviet makes it. An eagle flying on the pocket of a denim jacket? Soviet has it, mixing its symbols from the Cold War era. Soviet wear tests all of its fabrics and puts them through stringent washings to ensure their durability. And, far from its Soviet roots in Russia, the brand caters to those who seek a “rebellious, sexy and free lifestyle.” Lenin is turning over in his grave.
