While Russian president Vladamir Putin celebrates his 62nd birthday with a trip to the Siberian forests, Russian designers our honouring their leader’s big day with a new collection of sweatshirts featuring images of the president in sunglasses.
A collection of Putin T-shirts were launched in the summer, but now Russians have a warmer version to add to their wardrobe.
Souvenirs and slogans featuring the Russian president have become hot items this year, according to the Associated Press.
People queue to buy Putin-themed shirts at GUM, the state department store on the Red Square in Moscow.
Sales at the department store have been particularly good on Putin's birthday, according to the Associated Press.
Some artists are more creative. This person, for example, decided to take the celebration a little more ironically, drawing the face of the President, and other world leaders, on potatoes.
