LFW SS20: David Koma

WHEN it comes to evening attire, it’s in all of our best interests to keep track of what’s new with David Koma. Continuously inspired by the feminine form, the London-based designer turned his attention to capturing East African fauna with a modern twist for his SS20 collection. The results? Incredible, as predicted, and will most likely end up worn by every it-girl during award season after parties. Complementing the extravagant set of clothing was the equally star studded audience, with everyone from model Lottie Moss to actor Billy Porter with front row seats to the spectacle.

Koma girls this upcoming spring season are sharp-shouldered, draped in denim and, of course, sculpted to perfection. Celebrating a 10-year anniversary, the brand’s show opened with perhaps the most awe-inspiring look in the entire collection: a figure-hugging, zebra-printed sophisticated catsuit. Embellished with dark and light sequins, the pattern of the tailoring created a beautiful elongating illusion. It’s not hard to see why Koma then chooses to use the zebra motif few throughout the collection, for it accentuates sense of sensuality and is totally form flattering.

Textile-work is another major element of the collection. Layered fringe is sewn in such a way to evoke the wildlife of Sub-Saharan Africa. Diverse fabric usage is also key in heightening this theme. Leather, silk and mesh worked in unity to create unique a unique set of silhouettes that conjured up safari inspiration.

And while every piece definitely continues David Komas affinity with evening wear, a select few seemed somewhat better suited for daylight hours. Perhaps this is a hint towards a possible expansion into day-wear next season?

We cant wait to find out.
