Started in 2011 by self-confessed fashion loverss and entrepreneur Tatyana Tsykalenko and Eugene Shelling, Hako is an online store supporting young Ukrainian designers and brands, including streetwear, womenswear, menswear, conceptual wear and accessories. The store aims to provide its customers with “independent brands and clothes that are easy to wear”, and delivers worldwide.

Hako is very selective in choosing brands to work with. The growing list of brands currently includes cult Ukrainian streetwear brand X’U, as well numerous luxury fashion designers and brands such as DZHUS, Yulia Yefimtchuk+, Maya Kotelnitskaya, and CYAN, just to name a few.

In addition to working with designers and brands, Hako also has its own in-house brand, and regularly collaborates with artists to create exclusive lines. Previous collaborations include artist and musician Nas Chompas, graffiti artist Vova Vorotniov, and graphic designer and artist Ooli Mos.
