A chic showgoer complemented a white fur coat with a patterned headscarf at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Tbilisi, Georgia - Nov 3, 2018

Edgy and disturbing in some places, disarmingly lovely in others, Tbilisi street style has taken a fierce turn since Fashion Week’s last visit.

A fiery palette of reds and oranges, shot through with flashes of bright green, ignite the sidewalks of Spring 2019 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in the home territory of Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia.

The silhouette of the season involves ample layers and extra long coats topped by Gucci-inspired face masks. Plenty of metal hardware, graphic details, and grungy plaid prints mix together raucously with combat boots and other visceral elements.

A glance over these outstanding outfits, and you’ll understand why the fashion world just can’t tear its eyes away from Tbilisi right now. — jas
