Inspiration for the FW21-22 collection of the young Georgian fashion brand LEM came from the movie The Wishing Tree by Tengiz Abuladze. The poetic story about a pre-revolutionary Georgian village moved Pridon Niguriani, a designer for the brand, to reinterpret the traditional Georgian dress in modern ways. In his FW20-21 collection the designer works with his favorite techniques: bright and non-standard color combinations, numerous floral patterns, frills and ruffles, deconstructions and strong accents, such as exaggerated shoulders. There is also a kind of irony in the collection: the papakha that turns pink and grows strings like a bonnet. In an effort to rethink the traditional dress in new ways, not only does Pridon change the way his garments are cut, but also experiments with materials: the nabadi (burka) is made of wool using the “wet felting” technique. The collection’s focus is on blouses, suits, coats and trench coats that can be worn by women and men, emphasizing its androgynous character.
