LFW SS11 Day Four: David Koma
Hurrah! The peplum is back! Well, at least it is if you were watching the David Koma show. The sculptured peplums were used to add volume to the skirts and dresses. The collection was very feminine with short hems on floaty flippy skirts. The colour pallette was paired down and simple: monochrome with flashes of subtle yellow, gold, and plenty of gold hardware. As always, Koma had to toughen up the femininity with plenty of leather detailing in panels and ruffles.
The collection was an homage to Swan Lake and the Russian Ballet. I love the mixture of the leather with the chiffon, and the texture it creates: I also enjoyed the added texture brought by the python skin and the metallic linear and vertical shapes,inspired by cubist artist Fernand Leger, which was applied to some dresses.
