Hipsters From Omsk

Posted on September 5, 2011 by team

The residents of the Russian city of Omsk do know much about style. They put their soul, experience and even a bit of the country’s history into their appearance. Their clothes are a kind of reflection of a sublime mystery of being and an elevated tragedy of human life…

    Reminds me of the Hel-Looks website, they do this same thing, but in Helsinki.

    OK….. What is this? An April fools joke? It’s NOT April.

    As a moderator, you must ask yourself “do I want to put 15 (FIFTEEN!) pages of this out there for my readers to look at?”

    Do you have a fetish for this or something?? Even the military stuff you only go a few pages (four? five?).

    Do you really, REALLY, consider this to be as nice (or nicer) than the air show posts?

    Fifteen pages. Really?

    They should all be sent to Siberia! Oh dam they are already there!

  4. CZenda says:

    Erm… IKEA is overflowing with 70s fabrics like that worn by Lena Yakovlevna…

  5. swede says:

    My g-d Groovy place, i would love to stay there for the rest of my life!

  6. Ostyak-Vogul says:

    And plus, Omsk is a very very beautifull city full of old monuments!

  7. swede says:

    Ok we get it. But you are bringing up a good point though, what would Russians look like if they got more influence and pride from their own rich culture, drawing a line from Moscow and eastwards, to China even? As the bankrupt west sails down the sink, we will know eventually…

  8. Hoho says:

    Akasha, you may be surprised, but most of them have not ever heard about hipsters and this fashion ;)

  9. Zhlobko says:

    Well, actually these are mainly just poor people who look like they are having a tough time and trying to maintain their dignity. Should we be laughing at these people now?

  10. Edwin says:

    It’s not funny, they have no money to spent on fancy clothes.

  11. Di says:

    Russian babushkas reminds of horrible Helsinki fashion!

  12. (r)evolutionist says:

    Overpopulation? Too many stylists, not enough eco-warriors.

  13. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Many of these people would not look out of place in the USA. And some of these women are pretty hot-looking.

  14. JanPL says:

    I think they look pretty cool

  15. Vittu says:

    I think they look actually pretty cool. Well, kinda.

  16. josie says:

    wow, some of fhe grannies look like from Olga Gromova’s drawings! :)

  17. Beat says:

    Overall an enjoyable array of different style, no matter what others say.

  18. Goblin says:

    Tamara Petrovna from page 1 and Alla from page 4 are my favorite ones. I would not mind spending a passionate night with them.

  19. Kenover says:

    Seriously… These looks are fantastic!!! And they all clearly put a lot of thought into their outfits. I love it!!!

  20. Shocked Monkey says:

    Say what you want. I stay with Veronica.

  21. If there are any actual people from Russia that visit this website I would cordially invite them to visit the People of Walmart website if they are interested in researching true American culture and fashion.

  22. ra says:

    Most of the older people on these photos are poor beyond any level of povertry. You’ve got to be extremely naive to consider them being stylish. They’ve just unable to buy clothes and too tired to take care of themselves.

  23. ala says:

    they all look great IMO

  24. ururu says:

    yes, they are poor enough, but not ‘beyond any level of poverty’. they have enough to eat, and they don’t shiver at home when it’s freezing.
    soviet times taught people to make decent looks out of nothing – what we see here are the remnants of this knowledge

  25. Yuliya says:

    cool post. i especcially enjoyed cute old ladies :-)

  26. sasha says:

    on the second page already moscow

  27. stan says:

    the youngsters are all dressed weirdly.. the only people that are well dressed are some of the very old and a couple of the middle aged.. but that’s prob because they bought their garms during the Soviet times

  28. Catya says:

    Hipster or hobo?

  29. USSR says:

    Per shear number of fashion designers Omsk beating Paris,London and New York … :)

  30. canny says:

    It’s odd youngsters dress oddly and pull it off, immaturity, lack of funds who knows. Olders dress this way and sorry to say it just dont look right, looks kinda like a tramp.

  31. shaunot says:

    please go to youtube and check out the british equivalent “snog marry avoid” is what you need to type in

  32. Tatachka says:

    Some of these were very funny, but some of them were just sad and mean. It’s not very funny to make fun of the older, poor people who are trying their best to still look nice and take care of themselves.

  33. Riega says:

    Please, why you dont look at the face of the people insteed of what wardrobe owns. Are all people who have had an easy life? Please dont think like inmature minds.

  34. David says:

    Dignity, Style, Strength, Grace, Pride, Lovely.
