Today the attention of the entire world is focused on the President of Ukraine. Volodymyr Zelenskyy's wardrobe became one of the attributes of wartime. Everyone, from the average citizen to a serviceman, wants to have the same jacket or pants as the president of an indomitable nation has.
Western publishers in their analysis pay as much attention to Zelenskyy's attire as to his speeches. The New York Times journalist Vanessa Friedman believes that simple clothes emphasize the connection between the president and soldiers: due to his look he seems to understand their problems and is ready to solve them.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy chooses clothes from the Ukrainian brand M-TAC, which can be purchased in Ukraine, the United States and Europe.
The fleece jacket that has been worn by the Commander-in-Chief from the very beginning of the war became especially well-known.
It was recently sold at Christie's auction for 90 thousand pounds, which is equivalent to 110 thousand US dollars. The charity auction was supported by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Zelenskyy himself addressed attendees via video call during the auction! The money from the sale will go to a charity fund that helps Ukraine!
