David Koma Woman Spring Summer 2017 – David Koma brought an elegant, and what could be described as unusual, feel to his Spring Summer 2017 campaign.
Overall the colour palette was limited, along a monochrome theme with bright green and pale blue additions. This decision resulted in a chic, streamlined catwalk. Detail was added to the simple pieces through silver and green beading and mirrored acrylic, organised into diamond shapes. These additions were part of the wider links between the pieces, which was obvious to the observer. The whole catwalk was linked by the diamond shaped detail in the designs. As mentioned some had diamonds added through sequins and mirrors. Other designs had diamonds created in the patterns of the fabric. White dresses had diamond inserts created with sheer fabric in the bodice, and black dresses had inserts of green in a mesh-like, neat diamond. In addition to this the shapes and cuts of the designs hinted towards the neat diamonds. Dresses were dramatically asymmetrical, very long on one side and extremely short on the other. Another recurring element was noticeably low cut tops, creating a deep V. Each of these again hinted at the diamond shapes, with its straight immaculate sides and pointy edges.
No one can doubt that the brand has the ability to react to fast paced fashion and the desires of a modern woman. The monochrome chic look brought sophistication to the catwalk but the sheer material, skin-tight fabric and risqué cuts brought a racy edge, fitting for the modern fashionista who is all about taking risks.
The collection presented versatility, with an imagined audience of party girls, jetsetters and socialites.
