The Damir Doma spring/summer 2017 collection was unveiled on the runway during Milan Fashion Week and featured a very interesting look. Unsurprisingly the collection appeared very menswear inspired, but the small touches were charismatic to say the least. Everything was winningly constructed with complex elements that appeared exceptionally well placed.
The stitched-in details were exceptional little touches that elevated each garments look. The ensembles themselves were easily readable and attractive without appearing to be too much or too heavy, which can happen very easily with tailored over sized pieces.
Some of this was done with the great positioning of several fascinating details, accessories and complex structuring choices. There are little sayings embroidered into the sleeves as well, another great choice done in contrast.
A lot of the pieces in the Damir Doma spring 2017 runways show have a distinct deconstructed look that was intriguing without diminishing the polished appearance of the collection. More than visually interesting, the majority of the pieces are also practical and realistic. The models’ styling was not over the top, rather it was designed to be understated and nearly clean faced.
The principal colors utilized were black, yellow, dark olive and white, which were enhanced with touches of burnt orange and brown. The shoes were amazing, buckle detailed and in a variety of designs from buckle-topped ballet flats to open-sided, buckled slides and boots as well. The style of the shoes was more than just a good-looking addition; they improved the appearance of the outfits as well, which is what a great accessory is supposed to do.
The dresses were aesthetically intriguing as well, with the suspender styled straps making a great eye-catching detail. The suspender straps were also shown on the shirts, and the long-tailed belts made an appearance with a few of these tops and dresses.
The accessories were beautiful and very on trend unsurprisingly. Long belts hoisted to the higher portions of the waist for a striking silhouette. The use of ruffles and carefully placed deconstructed hems manufactured extra movement, especially when there was very little. The jackets and vests, especially with the high placed belts were eye-catching and an interesting take on a previously done idea.
Throughout the Damir Doma spring/summer 2017 collection multiple lengths were addressed, multiple styles included and overall the effect was simply stunning. While the collection showed that it was visually interesting and complex with impeccable structuring, it showed a lot more during Milan Fashion Week. The artistic presentation was well rounded and easy to like and can be easily integrated into several different wardrobes with no problem – always a great thing!
