Nino Dolidze and Lalo Dolidze are twin sisters from Georgia. Together, they founded a brand of sublime knitwear called LaloCardigans. In a short period of time they brought their signature cardigan far beyond Georgia and created the line LALO in 2016. Each item is a unique handmade piece from Georgia. They found their inspiration in the nature. 

 

 

 

LALO Fall 2016 has been presented during Kiev Fashion Week featuring delicate maxi dresses and long outwears still maintaining a very feminine silhouette. This collection's inspiration comes from paintings of Claude Monet. That results in a colourful collection and a fine work on textured embroideries.
