Takeau X MariElo

You know it is a special project when you can’t wait to share it with the public. I have been thinking about this blogpost for a while now, so let me get right to it!

There’s this girl… with her personal sense of esthetic incorporated in everything she does. Many know Mari Elo as a sophisticated and talented young ballerina performing with the State Ballet of Georgia. However, today I want to share one of the roles she performs in real life. Mari Elo just recently started her own line focusing on handmade knit tops, which she loves to call Cool-Cat-Style tops.

0Z0B1132Last summer Mari decided to spoil herself with the perfectly knitted top for her vacation but after the interest and growing demand from the side of friends, and friends of their friends, and their friends, she decided to make a small collection. The tops are so flattering, comfortable and well-knitted that they quickly became an essential for many summer wardrobes.



I, obviously, have my own Cool-Cat-Style top and I feel special every time I wear it. Therefore, Mari Elo and I decided to collaborate and demonstrate different ways of styling her tops. Working with such an artistic person as Mari and mixing our different visions for the collection is always fun and satisfying.



As for me, I think that every girl needs her own Cool-Cat-Style. In order to find the perfect one for you and get it, simply click here or here. This summer is all about effortless beauty and MariElo’s Cool-Cat-Style tops is what the doctor ordered!

Special thanks to Ika Khargelia for the photography!


New Point of View

People travel the world and explore whats unusual and interesting for them. People tell stories about all of this through art. While some prefer to write and other to tell through images it’s clear that everyone has their own perception of same objects.

Today I am sharing with you myself from Sopo Papiashvili’s point of view. We couldn’t let her visit to Tbilisi pass without pointing her lens on me!
If you didn’t have the chance to check her exhibition, you should probably go here. BUT,meanwhile here I am!




Let me know what you think and keep an eye on my Instagram for more.

Sopo Papiashvili- Photographer To Watch

sopo1I met Sopo back in my MORE is LOVE days. This beautiful, modest young girl from Moscow quickly confessed about her passion for photography. She showed me her images on Instagram and made me love them! Later that day I showed her photos to my friends and we couldn’t get enough of them.

Just several months later Sopo is back in Tbilisi again and this time she is sharing her photography through an exhibition hosted by DOTS – the space that has become home for young Georgian creatives of art and fashion. The exhibition showcases black and white portraits of beautiful women. Sopo captured the real emotion and natural beauty of these women.

The exhibition is dedicated to the conclusion of this particular artistic vision and stepping into the new stage. It is visited by Georgian socialites and foreign guests.
