• David Koma • S/S14 •

The show of the season. David Koma presented his ebay fashion sponsored show at Somerset House in the BFC Courtyard Space. The Georgian has an eye for style and all of his sexy but edgy pieces are fit for the red carpet. 

His inspiration this season was Kyudo. It's best understood as a form of meditation. This ancient practice isa meeting of Samurai martial arts and the spiritual practice of Zen philosophy. The laws are truth, virtue and beauty - these laws are how Koma interpreted it into a collection.

The opener was a black and white figure hugging dress. Following this came many black and white looks before electric blue hit the runway captivating the audience. Koma's a designer that has many fans. They include Maria Sharapova, Kylie Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Jennifer Lawrence. His fans will all be pleased with this collection.

Wearability is key at the moment and most designers pull that off. Koma does that in excess. The versatile pieces have a day to night attitude. They're edgy but also classy and appropriate for the everyday wanderer. 

I've always been a fan of the Central Saint Martin's alum and this has to be his best collection yet. He really outdoes himself, every season. And that's why I look forward to next season. To the future. Maybe that'll even be his inspiration.
