Davod Koma AW12 Collection

David Koma draws inspiration from ancestral portraits, the slender elegance of the 1920s and the minimal fashion detailing of the 1960s.

Koma combines influences from the lithe greyhounds of Louis Icart Art Deco paintings with...
.. Boldini's portrayal of the Marchesa Luisa Casati's charms.

Inspired by Thierry Poncelot's portraits of dogs in aristocratic attire, volume is created using ruched draping to minimise the waist and enhance the femal figure, reminiscent of Victorian dress.

Collars are high and stiff, recalling those on the mens shirts worn in the 1920s

Wool, fur and silks combined with technical fabrics adding a modern sportswear twist.

Colour palette was black and white with rich accent shades of dark blues, olive green....

... and plum tones.(Check out the greyhound silhouettes on the print)

The exclusive footwear was designed in collaboration with Alain Quilici and features sculpted greyhounds on the heels (you can just see on the model's white shoes in the background)
Cashmere knitwear has been developed with Hawick Cashmere of Scotland
