As the nights get chillier in Vancouver, my thoughts are turning to sweaters. I love fall for all the cliche reasons – the colours, the smells, the harvest – but mostly for being able to wear heavy bulky deliciously warm sweaters and giant jackets.
Marita Mamuchashvili’s last collection Crypotogram put a playful twist on women’s sweaters giving them uneven volume, pointy corners and variations in colour and shade. The men’s sweaters were rife with horizontal lines and slightly reminiscent of utopian b-movie‘s in their chunkiness and extra long sleeves.
The graphic prints seem like a mis-step but even if they are, they are gorgeous in their colouring and ability distort the shape of the body into appealing but slightly disturbing silhouettes.
Her collection is definitely for fashion trailblazers and I am very curious as to the next stage for this young designer.
“Marita is based in Tbilisi, Georgia. She studied at Academy Of Arts and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Design. She also studied at Tbilisi State Academy of Arts and received a Magister of Designer. Her collections are produced in Georgia. Her collection Cryptogram has been showcased in many projects, exhibitions and fashion shows.”
