fall prêt-à-porter, paris: damir doma

by Jeremy Danté

as one of the most exciting new designers of modern fashion, damir doma presents a thrilling FW11 collection on the runways of paris fashion week. dark lips seem to be the cosmetic inspiration for most of the collections that have showed this season in paris, thus far. nylon caps were added to each of the models heads, allowing our perceptions to be put into question. what i love about the doma collections are the concepts- it’s stylish but very simple; almost as if all we knew of fashion was stripped bare, leaving only a skeleton of a silhouette that proves to be undeniably alluring. a wide range of silhouettes were seen; wide legged trousers along with more sleek looks were presented along with dramatic coats & use of fur. as the beginning of the show sequence showcased a range of black looks, the message of trend defiance was felt & still, no artistic value was ignored & no opportunity of expression was left untouched. sleek blazers were seen alongside crisp white dress shirts that channeled masculine edge on the female models. sparks of yellow began to flutter into the collection palette as grey fur coats & speckled print kicked the black palette to the backseat. slight use of metallics & bold thrusts of yellow bum rushed the runway, as high collars & turtle necks were added to the already complex set of fashion artistry. salmon pink was seen as design lines became elongated & in other areas voluminous. a combination of tribal & galactic style sensibility was injected into the collections use of accessories as leather, leggings & reinterpreted necklines stunned us through to the end. the damir doma aesthetic is a culmination of varied style sources; a clear translation of high end fashion as art while an incredibly large amount of creativity is seen every season. love, love, love- modern, chic & stylish.
