I am inexpressibly (is that a word?) in love with this show by 25-year-old Georgian, David Koma.
His designs play bright, fluffy bits of color (just a perfect amount, in my opinion) against hard-edged body-con pieces.
As Fashion156 puts its, there is an angelic dominatrix vibe coming off the show. The faces on the pieces are photography done by the designer’s friend, Oleg Dou, and are actually Russian nuns. The mass of circles are inspired by the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, but there is nothing kitschy in his restatement of that artist.
I also like this show because it provides a counter-statement to the flowy romanticism of the seventies that is popping up everywhere in shows.
