Designers have been drawing on different historical epochs for Fall 2015. In New York, Adam Selman looked to the bad girls of the '60’s. J.W. Anderson, in London, was inspired by '80’s Berlin. Hyper-coloured 90’s showed up a Moschino in Milan, and in Paris, Miuccia Prada blended every decade from the '50’s to the '90’s in her Miu Miu collection. From micro-minis to conservative silhouettes, David Koma, during London Fashion Week, looked to the ’60’s for his collection. Held at the BFC Courtyard Show Space in Somerset House—the only show hosted their on the Sunday—Koma had 33-looks to show and we were in for quite the treat.
Koma, who assumed his position at Mugler at the beginning of the year. When I think of Mugler, I think sultriness. Obviously, there is a correlation between David Koma and Mugler. Sensual and sexy pieces are created seasonally. I feel as though David Koma has commercial element of his brand and that’s not a bad thing. Opening with a lantern sleeve below-the-knee-length zipper dress, this began the black and nude coloured section of the collection. A leather mini with nude illusion panels and yoke was a party-ready look. Look 9 was a nude dress with two circular cut-outs at the waist. Black sleeves and a high-neck rounded out the look. Look 16 was a black and navy striped turtleneck paired with a leather mini-skirt with wool panels. A marigold eyeleted A-line mini is on my red carpet wish list. Look 20 was a nude and marigold striped turtleneck, a recurrence in the collection, paired with a nude mini skirt with a ruffled hemline which boasted black lining. A disco-ball in mind, Looks 29, 31, 32, and 33, featured a reflective crystal embellished dress which glistened as the cameras flashed in the photographer’s pit. Any winter party or red-carpet needs can be found in this collection.
David Koma has yet to fail me. He is on a career high at the moment. His Mugler collections are fantastic. His celebrity fan-base is ever prospering. His Fall 2015 collection was fabulous. He designs outfits for sporty party-girls. This is was no exception. Sensual brilliance.
