David Koma AW12 Runway Collection: Hands On
I’ve already raved to you about the amazing new shoes that David Koma is producing for AW12, and though I don’t want to overload you with fangirl exclamations, his outfits are simply too delicious not to share as well. This season he’s gone for fierce structural pieces that make a don’t F with me statement and peplums feature heavily, whether they’re tiered and ruffled, or satiny and loose at the sites. There’s a slight gothic feel to the collection – and the makeup- but I feel this is more about showing that the clothes are designed for strong powerful women, rather than Morticia Addams fans.
Up close the pieces are every bit as striking as they are in the catwalk- you can see this in the images above, and I love that they translate from the runway into items I can imagine wearing. The fabric is thick and heavy- these are weighty items, one that give you purpose and expression, not throwaway clothes. It would be hard to say they are investment pieces as they are so striking, but as seasonal statement dresses you really can’t do better as these are so luxurious and fierce (yes, I said fierce already, it works here, OK?) that you NEED to get one!
Enjoy the rest, and get a tissue to mop up all that drool.
