Natalie Cantell about Matériel
A postcard from Tbilisi: the best of Georgian fashion.
Natalie Cantrell's favorite Georgian Designers, chosen while she visited Tbilisi Fashion Week, featured on Vogue Australia.
Matériel is undoubtedly the coolest store in Tbilisi. Its premium line, Matériel, is an assortment of collections from handful of truly exceptional young designers. Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili's collections have become an obsession of mine, particularly the Japanese feel of his layered looks that combine the heaviest cottons and light, buttery leathers, finished with the perfect slides. And that's taking nothing away from what's offered up alongside him by Lika Chitaia and Tiko Paksashvili. One of the most exciting (and judging by past collections, consistently outstanding) designer labels I've discovered anywhere" - says the author.
