To obtain a seat at the table, Djaba Diassamidze has one request and one request only: be dressed to kill but tastefully.
In the FW18 collection, showcased at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi, Djaba Diassamidze gave us the fantasy of womenswear that build the bridges between the multi-faceted aspects of our personalities but also a reminder that making a political statement towards gender equality in 2018 can be done subtly, with elegance and have as much of an impact anytime and anywhere (read: freethenip!)
The collection that was predominantly sombre, maintained a vibrant air by combining a variety of colours that ranged from black, gold, along with shades of white, ochre and cream.
The strategic use of fabric, particularly on monochrome garments, reinforced the statemements of each garment. Having said that, although DjabaDiassamidze’s FW18 collection uses velvet, leather, sequins, silk, 3D stitchings- and who could forget the leopard printed coat?!- in my opninion it is the ways in which the monochrome looks are put together with such attentiveness and precision that stands out the most for me. This is a recurring theme throughout the collection but below are my notes on 3s:
I could bable for eternity about how much I love these looks. To start off the overall monochrome look is phenomenal. Between the full length, pearly white wide trousers in look 1, the black on black + bling gold hipline belt & sharpness of the telescope hat in look 2, and last but not least the contrast of everything that makes look 3, from the silky hemlines to the bolero jacket’s sequins’ lapel, this collection is full of muses and a sources of inspiration that will stand the test of time.
