In recent years, Russia’s growing influence over global fashion has been inescapable. Led by Gosha Rubchinskiy, Cyrillic text has appeared in collections from all over the world and “post-Soviet” fashion has become more and more popular.

To look at this trend, a new documentary has been announced that will explore the origins and popularity of Russian streetwear. Street Spirit will feature 30 Russian streetwear brands from the late ’90s right up to the present day, and will look at how Russia’s street fashion scene has gone on to influence global culture and be adopted by everyone from Kanye West to A$AP Rocky. Watch the trailer for Street Spirit above, and you can head to the crowdfunding page for more information and to help support the project.

For more post-Soviet fashion, take a look at Fucking Young!‘s latest editorial that mixes classic sportswear with high fashion in Russia.
