David Koma’s offering for AW15 is markedly different from the past couple of seasons. The collection feels more elevated and polished; possibly as a knock on effect of his work at Mugler. This season, he presented his signature sass and sexiness in a more subtle way, with demure Sixties silhouettes with pretty peplum sleeve detailing. Nude fabric made for a barely there look without acres of flesh on show. Masterful use of leather saw pretty ruffles on leather skirts in a stunning midnight blue colour, complemented with orange macarame lace. The final looks were the signature David Koma fluted skirt silhouette at their very best – adorned with an abundance of sequins.
Although I always enjoyed seeing Koma’s collections at fashion weeks but after seeing the AW15 collection, I can see that the last few seasons were just a warm up and this is the real deal.
