Love football. Wear unique.
Hey there! Welcome to Stunner – a place, where we care about football designs from the past. Stunner as a unit was formed in late 2017 by Polina & Serge.
S: Fascination with football designs began way back in early childhood, when any spare money that I had was instantly spent on yet another bootleg shirt from a local market. Naturally, as I was growing out of my precious collection, the appetite for the new stuff grew along. This website is where it led me.
P: Being a lifelong admirer of the 90s fashion and somewhat a football fan, I didn’t have to think twice before joining Stunner. Building whole looks around vintage footy gems became my favourite challenge in this game. Regardless, whether it’s a pair of 501 Levi’s & classic AirMax or a cocktail dress & a pair of high heels — it can go equally as well. For I believe football designs are being unfairly neglected when it comes to wearing them casually.
Ever since Polina joined the ship, we both realized that we must go beyond online sales with our message. So in May of 2019, we held an experimental pop-up store as part of Kurazh – Kyiv’s largest flea-market. It helped us understand that there's a certain interest in the football culture in our area, but in order to establish it firmly in the minds, we simply had to go with a full-time store.
A place where we could advocate the beauty of 90s football and encourage people to invest in quality vintage items instead of paying unfair money for disposable football shirts they produce nowadays (something we complain about a lot).
So we did, and did it with style. In March 2020, we lit our neon sign and opened our yellow doors right in the middle of Kyiv, in a historical XIX century mansion.
What started as a risky decision in a pandemic year has qucikly grown into a cultural space. It became a meeting spot for football enthusiasts from all around the globe. A place where you could watch a game with the owners drinking beers from a corner shop, a place to display your art or leave a football sticker behind.
Currently based in the UK, we carry on with our website, dreaming about the day we come back home to re-open our store in Kyiv.
