Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili Fall/Winter 20/21 collection is inspired by migrated Georgian women. Social impact is translated into woman-friendly, comfortable pieces.
"In my country, year-over-year women's migration process increases. They leave everything and start new life for the sake of the family. Their only purpose is to send remittances and return home soon. Social and psychological costs associated with separation of the families is enormous. These women don't have enough time to take care of themselves, so my bra-over pieces represent their indifference towards their personal life. My inspiration was my friend's aunt, who experienced emigration. Her style reflected all her obstacles and deepest passions." - said the Georgian Designer.
As a palette of neutral and sandy tones solidifies into deep notes of caramel and is lit by touches of red and yellow to end in shades of blue and navy blue, the play of textures - matte and shiny, smooth and coarse mingled in endless permutations. Checked cotton, faux leather, blue wool, yellow viscose, are cut into various silhouettes. Collection features padded blazers, low waisted pants, spaghetti straps, asymmetrical cuts and thigh high slits. Forms are both masculine and feminine.
