With a collection mirroring David Koma’s style from previous seasons, well positioned pony fur plates and pleated leather skirts with cage like detailing were left to steal the show.
The show opened with a long purple coat that fell neatly on the shoulder but had a gently voluminous feel through the body. There were subtle references to the grandeur of a Renaissance silhouette from a superhigh turtleneck through to more skin-revealing portrait collars.
Koma had been looking at the corsetry of the era for inspiration and interpreted that waist-cinching look with basket-weaving or lattice cut-outs around the middle.
The combination of single shade knee high boots, heels and dauntless dresses gave an air of every day and evening wear accessibility.
Koma has never been a man to employ prints in his work, instead channeling elevated accuracy through orderly shapes and bold colour blocking and keeping his work classic and muted.
Cut-out grid patterns were applied to leather dresses and skirts as he interspersed splashes of rich purple and emerald blue amongst the strong monochrome looks.
