For Autumn Winter 2015, the designer David Koma treats digital inspirations with a tactile hand, to celebrate the bold femininity of the MUGLER woman. His collection sets a high-shine standard of modern elegance, injecting sculptural physicality into the flatform memories of a microchip and circuitboard - those intricate, real world connectors that link us to infinite possibilities. A precise jigsaw of structure elevates Koma’s streamlined creations with a sense of arching geometry.
Reprising the bodily silhouette of his Spring debut, a new focus on technical craftsmanship is paramount. Koma draws a sinuous throughline of anatomic adornment throughout - accentuating the hips, bust and collarbone with touches of sheer panelling, and eyelet or steel nimrod embroidery. Segmented, angular forms wrap around the body in asymmetric harmonies – as monochrome shift dresses and tailoring flirts with matte and shine.
Optic white wool crepe is warmed by the rosy shine of copper-toned leather, encircling the waist or lasercut into moulded, hand-stitched miniskirts inlaid with mesh. Layered throughout, second-skin turtlenecks in lambskin or 3D sequins shine beneath tailored cabans and sharp peplum blazers, creating a sensual neckline that continues in a final passage of sculptural eveningwear. Here, silk gowns are engineered with laced inserts or iridescent sequins, draping to the ankle in a sensual, hourglass form.
