HQWarsaw, Poland
FounderNatalia Maczek

Arguably an anomaly in the streetwear scene, MISBHV is a women’s fashion brand launched in 2013 by Polish designer Natalia Maczek. Initially launched to create tees and other streetwear pieces for Maczek and her friends to wear out clubbing, the label has rapidly grown, garnering acclaim from its international audience. Deeply rooted in Polish culture and Warsaw’s burgeoning street scene, MISBHV could be considered part of the same “Post-Soviet” movement which has seen Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy, or Georgian designer Demna Gvasalia, rise to prominence, despite the fact that Poland was never officially part of the Soviet Union. As a result, collections regularly mix elements of both streetwear and high fashion together, creating easily-wearable collections that incorporate cultural references into luxury designs. The formula has proven successful, and in its short life, MISBHV has quickly found popularity with fashion insiders and celebrities, with Miley Cyrus, Jourdan Dunn and Rihanna all being known fans of the brand. In 2016, MISBHV took its boldest step yet when it was announced they would be presenting their Spring/Summer 2017 collection on the runway at New York Fashion Week. The brand is now firmly established as a true fashion label, offering a comprehensive range of apparel, accessories and footwear, as well as producing men’s collections alongside its mainline women’s collection.
