DESIGNER TO KNOW: Georgy Baratashvili fashion

The latest addition to the list is Russian designer , a graduate of Central Saint Martins whose work – including previous collaborations with and the Jamaican Olympic team – marries sportswear with a darkly romantic aesthetic.

With intricately draped jersey, layered wool and washed leather in soft nude and grey shades, this is a vision of luxury with serious attitude.
