George Keburia talks hyper-femininity, his Georgian heritage and how a pair of sunglasses changed his game

With the world as visually oversaturated as it is today, it can take a lot for an emerging fashion designer to get noticed. Occasionally, though, it takes just one item; for Georgian designer George Keburia, it was a pair of sunglasses that were a game-changer. Sleek and angular, Rihanna was seen wearing a red pair on the pages of Dazed as part of Harley Weir’s Nocturnal Activities cover story, Solange has been snapped in a pair, and the designer counts Bellaand Gigi Hadid as fans too. It’s no surprise they’ve proved a hit. The glasses strike a balance between effortless statement piece and curious design object, qualities that render them a must-have for the Insta-generation – yet...

Irina Lakicevic’s Stylish Guide To Tbilisi

ILLUSTRATED BY TRISTAN OFFIT
For my first time in Georgia (for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi), I was quite unsure what to expect. But Tbilisi proved to be a great place, which, alongside a sublime hotel stay, offered a thrilling trip into a culture that has been equally influenced by the East as it has by the West. Hipster spots, great interiors and architecture — not to mention fantastic music — all mean that Tbilisi’s title of "the new Berlin" is really well deserved. Food is budget-friendly, bakeries are on every corner, and Georgian wine is among the best I’ve tasted. Its brutalist buildings, which, alongside recent contemporary additions, make the city an eclectic and exciting place for anyone who appreciates the mixture of shiny new...

This Eggplant Parm Is Famous For Inducing Labor

scalinis-eggplant-parmesan-4
Like every other pregnant person in the history of time, I was nearing a point of pathetic desperation. At 38 weeks, and so large that I once got stuck in my bathtub, my usually rational mind grew increasingly frustrated with science and simultaneously open to old wives’ tales: Pineapples (not too ripe), power walking, raspberry leaf tea, vomit-causing castor oil smoothies—anything to (allegedly) induce labor. So by the time the late-night note arrived in my inbox, it was weird but not that weird: “Try this recipe,” wrote a Facebook friend I hadn’t seen in a decade. Attached was a snapshot of torn crumpled paper, handwritten in scrawled pencil, for Eggplant Parmesan. Her husband, as it turned out, had overheard a gaggle of moms at a Toronto coffee...

You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Been to Tbilisi’s Art Cafés

0-holding-art-cafes-in-tbilisi-georgia
Georgia, a land where Saperavi grapevines grow over roads; potbellied men with broad, black mustaches saunter through cobblestone streets; and fertile soil births an excess of fruits and vegetables. Lauded for hospitality, it’s one of the only places where a stranger might be whisked through the front door and stuffed full of adjaruli khachapuri, a molten mess of cheese, butter, and egg over moist flatbread, at a supra, a Georgian feast. At that meal, the classic Georgian toast befits the untamable terrain and the fierce warrior spirit of the population as it lauds “the land, the food, and the people.” Tbilisi, the country’s capital, hides a treasure around every corner. Apartments stack one on top of the other in mismatching styles....
