FOR THE HEADING "WARDROBE" we photograph beautifully, distinctively or oddly dressed people wearing their favorite things and ask them to tell stories related to them. This week our heroine is the owner of the Kebabnstop project and DJ Nika Kubrak.

My style has always been influenced by hobbies and lifestyle. The school had a uniform - hence the craving for the classic style of clothing. And while I was studying at the University of Civil Aviation, I wore a jacket, special trousers and skirts everywhere. At the same time, I traveled on a skateboard and a bicycle all over St. Petersburg - so I had to alternate suits with jeans, sweatshirts and sneakers. As a teenager, I used to dress at Udelka. This is a popular second-hand in St. Petersburg - all fashionistas dressed there. After moving to Moscow and becoming a restaurant manager, I began to look more "feminine".
Now my style is rather minimalistic, it is absolutely comfortable for me and is always applicable to real life. I choose high quality and simple things. At some point, I threw away my entire wardrobe and recreated it, making it as basic as possible. I bought black trousers, a white shirt, jeans and a black dress. I rarely go to stores and always quickly determine what I need. I spend the minimum amount of time there - I get tired very quickly. I don't buy clothes in online stores either, because I love the feeling of contact with clothes.
My line of work definitely influences how I look. During the day I work in my project with the Kebabnstop shawarma - there I am dressed as practical as possible. In the evenings I play DJ sets in bars or at events and try to add a little polish by wearing a jacket, suit or dress. I do not have time to compose images for a long time, I think over all my bows while taking a shower in between works.
Cheap Monday sweater, COS jeans, New Balance sneakers
I wear the Cheap Monday sweater backwards. It is deliberately large, I feel safe and comfortable in it. One of my favorite things in my wardrobe. I already said that I love basic things - this also applies to shoes.
Jacket & Pants - Uniqlo U, Maison Margiela Sneakers
I'm not chasing brands - I don't care how much the item costs. But it seems to me that a "chemistry" should happen between you and the thing, because the thing is an addition and continuation of you. Both the jacket and trousers are from the men's department.
I have a long-standing love affair with these Replica sneakers. I have five pairs of them. I love literally everything about them, and they also have a story.
Apple Watch, earrings - at
I am not attached to accessories - I treat them very calmly.
The dress is made to order, vintage clips are at
I sewed a black velvet dress to order from a photograph when I saw some actress. I liked its straight silhouette.
Uniqlo shirt, Uniqlo U T-shirt, Zara jeans, Reebok sneakers, Dolce & Gabbana glasses
I love shirts - I have a lot of them. The most suitable ones for me are at Uniqlo. I think that in the men's department things are better, experiments with women's ones usually do not lead to anything - not finding anything, I run back to the men's room and grab a shirt or even jeans without trying on.
Massimo Dutti suit, Prada shirt
All my looks show that I choose simple and laconic things. Basically, I buy only those that I will definitely wear. Appreciate the quality and fit.
I bought this costume spontaneously. A friend from St. Petersburg came to me and suggested: "Let's dress up for dinner." I like Prada because it's a timeless brand. Each of their items is a good investment, they can be worn for years.
Uniqlo Cardigan, Bimba y Lola dress, Maison Margiela sandals
Traditionally, “feminine” things in everyday life I do not wear so often, so my friends react to them especially actively and always give compliments.
Cristian Dior shirt, Petra bra, Zara jeans, Comme des Garçons x Converse sneakers
Petra bought a bra with a certificate that friends presented for the New Year in Kazbegi.Recently, I have not pampered myself with beautiful underwear, but friends always know how to please. I bought a shirt in Rome at a flea market, and jeans from the men's department.
Marc Jacobs suit, Comme des Garçons x Converse sneakers
My love for costumes is noticeable with the naked eye - you never need to think long about what to wear with them, everything is ready. With clothes, in general, everything is simple for me: like it or not. If in doubt, I don’t take it, because I know that I will not wear it.
