Nothing says Russia like a matryoshka doll — or Saint Basil’s Cathedral.

Landmark Moscow department store Tsum conscripted its luxury partners to create exclusive products to mark its 110th anniversary — and the assignment yielded silk scarves festooned with that colorful, bonfire-shaped church — or the historic Tsum building, a six-story Gothic Revival style structure on Petrovka Street.

More subtle nods to the nation’s rich culture include vaguely Constructivist patterns on shoes, folk art motifs on scarves and splashes of red, evoking that famous Moscow Square, on a handbag strap.
