Unlikely Style Inspiration: Pussy Riot

When you think of Russian punk band/activist group Pussy Riot, the first thing that springs to mind is probably an image of women wearing colourful outfits, strapped with electric guitars, and topped with vibrant makeshift balaclavas. Their image packs almost as much of a punch as their music, whether this is their intent or not matters little to us. We are here for the ski masks. 

Ours are pretty much identical to the style favoured by Pussy Riot. A basic chunky knit with the requisite three holes, offered in an array of vibrant colours, including neon orange and green. They are the logical next step after the DIY 'toque with holes cut out' look championed by the women of Pussy Riot. Still simple and fun, ours are ideal for cold weather shenanigans, hijinks, maybe even some "hooliganism", (one of the official charges laid on Pussy Riot after their controversial church performance). 

And just in case you weren't already familiar with the current feminist activism/punk rock scene in Russia and have no idea what we're on about, you can educate yourself on the plight of Pussy Riot here.
