Belgrade souvenirs. Forget traditionals. Our city can offer you something more authentic and unique. Belgrade is a pot of mixed influences of East and West, a place where culture, art, history, food, and energy meet. So if you want to have a piece of our city here is a list of benchmarks you should definitely check out!
If you’re in Sweden you’ll buy Acne Studios The Kånken bag, if you’re in New York you can get Marc Jacobs The Ripstop backpack, if you’re in Belgrade you can buy The Ruksag. Ruksag is limited edition, futuristic designed, street style leather backpack, because nothing says street style like black or red luxury every day bag.
The man behind the brand is Marko Cerketa, who is one of the few in the fashion world who made a statement bag at the beginning of his career. You can see Ruksag on Paris Men’s Fashion Week, in Lakic showroom Paris, on the streets of Hong Kong and in Belgrade.
ZLA is another great brand from Belgrade. People say that time flies, but design and quality last forever. ZLA is one of the most wanted streetwear brands in our city. They mix and match pop and surfskate culture, hiphop fashion and ‘90s sportswear, and continuously develop streetwear hype and create very unique and recognizable collections.

REIN handmade raincoats
On average, there are 186 sunny days per year in Belgrade and 109.8 rainy days. May is the rainiest and February is the driest month. Sun or rain you’re gonna need REIN.
In December 2015, fashion designer Elena Bajević made this minimalistic, lightweight, handmade raincoat. Whether you’re looking for a fabulous raincoat or just want to stay active while in Belgrade, REIN is option for you. It’s so ultra cool that you are going to wear it on a sunny day as well. You can thank me later.
Belgrade abstract souvenirs
Two of my favourite things: an abstract artwork and a small abstract artwork. Svetlana Ninković is a contemporary abstract expressionist artist and a woman who loves piano, coffee with a lot of milk, the mystical and uknown, trying to interact and channel her spiritual world into reality. Colors, lines, shapes, and textures in her artworks directly conveyed her emotional state, her movement and energy. If you’re an art lover, then you should consider buying her small abstract artworks. Next time you’ll come with a place in your room for a bigger one.
