In the old, cobblestoned historic town of Tbilisi, Georgia is the factory of Aleksandre Akhalkatishvili. Weaving his thread through the lens of deconstructive minimalism, Aleksandre Akhalkatishvili aims to represent the professional and emotional power of the modern woman. Focusing on form and function rather than lavish specifics, the SS21 collection carries a masculine energy balanced with asymmetrical silhouettes and light fabrics. Consciously crafted for she who need not think to understand what she needs, the pieces are produced by women, for women.
Closely committed to slow fashion and minimal waste production, each piece is made with natural fabrics like wool and silk, omitting those like fur and leather. The asymmetry of the collection begins with the dresses, embellished with dainty straps and ties that drape softly from the shoulder. Characterised by unique style contrasts, the feminine rouching detail falls delicately over the palazzo pants beneath them.
Barely-there vegan leather mini-skirts style back perfectly with the more masculine, structured blazer, low-waisted pants with uneven cut-outs almost fuse with their cropped blazer partner. Complimenting the collection are the long, square-toed shoes that obstruct the feminine pieces with which they are paired.
With the goal to create pieces that will be worn and treasured for a lifetime, the collection is wearable, timeless and uncomplicated. Playing with colour, detail and texture, Aleksandre Akhalkatishvili shifts seamlessly from feminine to masculine, producing a synthesised masterpiece that is both elegant and powerful.
