LFW: David Koma

We don’t have a lot in common with Cheryl Cole at Notion, but we do both
love a bit of David Koma. The Georgian designer’s glamorous dresses have
long been appreciated in our offices, and his show is one of those catwalks
that we always look forward to. This season was no exception. Koma excelled in pulling out all the stops in glamour with a unique and pleasing take on the geometric trend. Favouring a polka dot pattern, Koma played with the circles, laser-cutting them out of a leather cape and inserting them across sensual organic shapes on bodycon short dresses. Leather was all over the catwalks here (as everywhere else at LFW), but Koma’s always appeared wearable, and avoided the goth-punk trap that’s so easy to fall down. Yes, it was commercial, but the strong look that Koma espouses moved on from last season in a softer manner, and the shots of colour (including highlight hue du jour, cobalt), screen-printed faces and fur pompoms dotted around injected a welcome relaxed feel into day four of LFW. Koma might not be the most experimental cutter, but he sure knows how to throw a glamourous dress together, and for that we salute him.
