London Fashion Week Day 1 – David Koma

David Koma is not my kind of designer. Or maybe it is just this season. The inspiration for this collection is supposed to be taken from graphic artists of the early 20th century. There were lots of geometric cut-outs, bodycon dresses in nude and black, very strong lines, powerful silhouettes, but it is typically the stuff that leaves me cold. I can appreciate how very “London” and how very talented Koma is, but it is just not for me. Getting back to the age issue, maybe I am simply too old for Koma, I long for more simplicity… and perhaps a bit less flesh on display!
