PAN TU NIE STAL

Polish Pan tu nie stal, as we’ve written before in our favorite V4 plus brands, means ‘You are not here’. The founders of the design store didn’t want to open a vintage shop in the classic sense but aimed to sell the work of contemporary designers inspired by the material culture of the region. A special place in our selection is occupied by the ‘Block Scarf’, which is inspired by iconic housing estates from the socialist era.

CUKOVY

“We craft soft armours for urban wanderers,” says the campaign slogan for Cukovy’s exclusive coats in Hungary. The brand draws inspiration from everyday life, and the coats are walking works of art that warm up the coldest days.
