Chubika on a lockdown

CHUBIKA

ON A LOCKDOWN

A huge crisis, the fashion industry faced because of Covid-19, turned into the biggest creative survival reality show we all became a part of. And let’s face it. Some creative forces made the most of their self-isolation. Virus  turned humanity into creators. Some found peace in painting, some — in challenges and some turned into photographers. In given circumstances DIY photoshoots are an important source of inspiration. Do you remember that of Steven Meisel? We joined together with Nino Chubinishvili aka Chubika to create this lock-down-photoshoot with some cool local artists and creators. They posed in Chubika jewellery pieces and also answered some quick fire questions

The brand Chubika joined IERI in January with an 8 piece jewelry collection. For the launch of the collection our store turned into a museum for a night where Chubika’s famous sculpture and some sketches were presented
