Vogue online staff writer Liana Satenstein has named Bob Basset among the nine Ukrainian designers to invest in now—not least because the Ukrainian economy could use a boost.

“Our economy feels difficult now, and one thing became clear: We, the clients, should invest in Made-in-Ukraine labels, which should flourish and gain success,” says Ukrainian stylist and journalist Olga Zhyzhko, “which means designers understood that they should pay more attention to quality and pricing.”

Satenstein praises bags by Bob Basset, noting, “If you want to up the ante in your handbag collection with something that’s a little, well, out there, look to the label Bob Basset. Basset puts the dark side into bags, courtesy of a touch of BDSM and plenty of steampunk references. Let’s just say, the next conversation starter begins on your arm.”
