Despite the crisis and the unstable dollar, new stores continue to open in Moscow, albeit not as actively as before. We tell you what fairs and discoveries await us in the next three months.
WHERE:Bersenevskaya nab., 14/5
The first summer Lambada Market will traditionally be held again in the courtyard of the Strelka bar. Going here is not only for the view of the Moscow River and the Kremlin, but also for finds from flea markets from around the world, vintage outfits and completely new things from private sellers. In addition to permanent residents like Sugar with handmade jewelry, Sputnik 1985 anarchists (T-shirts and sweatshirts with gloomy prints) or St Petersburg's mouth-to-mouth (quilted jackets no worse than Uniqlo, and striped trapeze dresses), many newcomers promise . The food court will accommodate about 30 participants with street and homemade food, soft drinks, ice cream and sweets. Admission, as before, is free.
Opening Urban Decay Corner
WHERE:st. Maroseyka, 9/2

The American beauty brand Urban Decay will soon appear in the flagship Ile de Bote on Maroseyka. They will bring here a full assortment of decorative cosmetics, as well as bright summer news: with a dozen saturated cream blush, monotonies and pigmented lip glosses. Unlike the Urban Decay Corner at TsUM, where you have to buy funds at full cost, Ile de Beaute has a small discount on cosmetics (about 15-20%) on a regular network buyer card.

Another American cosmetic brand continues to open stores in Moscow. The new one will appear in August at the Yerevan Plaza shopping center. As in other Kiehl's spaces, here you can buy cosmetics for face and body care, as well as masks, shampoos and hair balms. In addition, since the end of May, the brand has acquired a Russian-language version of the online store, which greatly facilitates the search for the right product for those in whose cities Kiehl's cosmetics has not yet been presented.
WHERE:st. Big Yakimanka, 32
+7 (499) 238-22-08
Opened two years ago, Nail Sunny with unprecedented prices for manicure continues to grow in the network. In addition to the very first salon located on Yakimanka, two more spaces are now working - on Novy Arbat and in the Borisovo metro area. Until the end of summer, Nail Sunny will appear on Kutuzovsky Prospekt and Rublevsky highway. As in other salons of the network, in addition to manicure and pedicure, they will do haircuts, styling and dyeing, as well as hardware and manual procedures and hair removal. The cost of services in all salons is the same: hair coloring - from 4 thousand rubles, uncoated manicure - 200 rubles. One can only hope that registering in new salons will be easier than in the main Nail Sunny at Yakimanka, where there are almost no empty seats.
Fourth Monki Store
WHERE:st. 7th Kozhukhovskaya, 9
+7 (495) 739-90-99
By analogy with H&M, the Monki brand (both brands are part of the Swedish H&M Group) continues to open new stores with enviable persistence. In August, you can buy funny fluffy slippers or inexpensive flower dresses at the Mosaic shopping center at Avtozavodskaya.
Already now a collection has appeared in the brand’s stores, created in collaboration with the artist Linny Zulu. The most successful items in the collaboration are accessories like cosmetic bags in the form of a juicy watermelon slice and swimwear with bright prints. The prices are ridiculous: from 400 rubles per wallet.
Corporelle Lingerie Website
A year ago, it seemed that, in addition to t-shirts with prints and unbearably expensive couture dresses, young Russian designers did nothing. Today, dressing up and down on Russian brands (without spending half the salary) no longer seems to be something of a fantasy. For example, the lingerie of Petersburgers Corporelle Lingerie is not inferior to Agent Provocateur or Bordello in the intensity of passions. The designer Ksenia Rechenskaya and her mother are engaged in the brand: lace, satin and silk are ordered from France, all models are hand-sewn, and American and British magazines are already shooting provocative Corporelle Lingerie sets.
In the summer, Ksenia promises to launch an online store where you can view all the kits and order what you like anywhere in the world. For now, to receive the catalog, you need to contact Corporelle Lingerie by mail.
Restarting Aizel Website
The multi-brand Aizel goes to a new level: now the online store will work in marketplace format. This means that you can buy on the site not only things from the main assortment of the store, but also clothes, shoes or accessories from other monobrands like Stella McCartney, Sergio Rossi and Alexander Terekhov. In addition, the Gucci brand, first available online in Russia for the first time, will be sold on the Aizel website very soon. For things from the fall-winter collection of next year, you can now pre-order.
Faces & Laces Exhibition
WHERE:st. Krymsky Val, 9
WHEN:August 8 and 9
The ninth exhibition of street culture Faces & Laces this year will again be held in Gorky Park. In total, more than 300 participants will be located on the embankment of the Moscow River: giants like Nike, Vans and adidas Originals, young Russian brands and novice designers, as well as artists and musicians. As always, the exhibition will have skateboarding venues, a zone with custom cars and motorbikes, voluminous art and thematic installations and a food court.
New Topshop Store and Collaboration
WHERE:Manezhnaya sq., 1/2
+7 (495) 737-84-49
At the end of May, Topshop reappeared at the middle level of the Okhotny Ryad shopping center, where the British mass market was open for several years from 2008 to 2010. On June 3, brand collaboration with Kylie and Kendall Jenner (sisters Kim Kardashian) is expected here. The range will include dresses, tops and shorts with a floral (predictably) print, t-shirts and sweatshirts with large inscriptions, sarafans and blouses made of bleached cotton, dresses to the floor and translucent wide trousers (hi, 70s). Prices are promised to be slightly higher than in the main Topshop line.
