Fashion wars: Russian Army unveils new sexy uniform

Soldiers in Russia will soon be looking sexier and sleeker, thanks to the talent of a top fashion designer. Valentin Yudashkin, whose clothes adorn catwalks across the world, is helping to design a modern uniform for the Russian Armed Forces.

The Ministry of Defence thinks its time to upgrade the uniform to something trendier.
“The uniform hasn’t been changed since 1994. But now we need greater variety and better design for the regions,” army general Vladimir Isakov said.
Well for Russian soldiers the time has come to hang up the furry hat and replace it with one pointier and sleeker.

Jacket pockets are out, and shiny tassels are in. The regulation olive colour is so 2007, and now its all about aquamarine and little white gloves.

“The uniforms are modern, light and elegant, and, as I see it, very Russian. Young recruits should be at the cutting edge, they shouldn’t be deprived of anything and must be fashionable,” designer Valentin Yudashkin explained.  
Now Yudashkin’s new uniforms will be rolled out to the regions and tested, because while they might have the flair they must also withstand some hefty wear and tear.
