David Koma’s AW collection brought an update to the classic 60s look, with interesting scalloped cut-outs, which continued through out the show in dresses and skirts, PVC oversized pockets and leather trims, ruffles and cut-out dresses. The collection highlighted David Koma’s strengths of asymmetrical cuts and structured shapes.
The combed back hair and minimal make-up kept all focus on the clothing. Still fresh from the title of being the creative director at Thierry Mugler, Koma’s vision has helped rebrand Mugler, putting it back on the fashion map.
Keeping to the 60s theme, David added ruffled hemlines to shirts and skirts, unusual zigzag effects on dresses and witty layering created in different shapes. The colour palette was a mix of bright hues of carrot orange to dark sapphire blue, mixed in with a palette of black and nude.
The silhouettes were classic 60s with an updated cut, the shift dresses had low V necklines styled with a trusty turtleneck, mini skirts were a mix of body-con and flare, keeping to Koma’s distinctive design and 60s trend. All looks were well-tailored with different textures and a mix of different materials, helping the collection become ready-to-wear for the modern-day woman.
Overall, the looks reflected a woman on a mission with combat style high neck crop tops to the military style belts. Very much like the woman of today, strong but still beautifully dressed.
