Beautiful in black leather. The David Koma fall/winter 2015-2016 collection featured the black look, combined with the mock leather, the skin-tone nude, the white, the orange, and the electric blue and darker blue hues. We had a whole lot of sequin appear at the end, while we tried to imagine these pieces on some futuristic women who would drive space ships and glamour the party by night. Sleeveless or with sleeves, short hems at a mini length or longer midis with slits up the middle, keyholes and cut-outs; everything seemed to become a part of the David Koma collection.
Georgian fashion designer David Komaknidze is known simply as David Koma and is the founder of his eponymous fashion house. Born in Tbilisi, the designer has made London his home now. It was in the spring/summer 2011 London Fashion Week that he received a BFC Newgen Catwalk sponsorship and has since taken on the position of creative director for the house of Thierry Mugler, having been there for just over a year now. He is also loved by the celebrities of Hollywood, having had his designs worn by Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Megan Fox, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Khloe Kardashian, Miranda Kerr, Eva Longoria, Anna Paquin, and so many others. His pieces are simply beautiful to behold and he did not fail to feed into our joyful anticipation this year once more.
There was much to love about this David Koma fall/winter 2015-2016 collection, but especially intriguing were the fabrics in scuba girl style neoprene and daring cut-outs in the most unexpected of regions, the buckles that kept appearing along the waist and across the chest, the splits up the center with the adjustable additions that make going to the bathroom a breeze, the warrior style chain mail designs, and the use of frilled sleeves to give the looks a more intriguing and olden effect overall. Perhaps it was the multitude of zippers that added the sexy touch, or maybe it was the dual fabric combinations that did it; whatever it was, we fell head over heels in love with the designs of this Georgian designer showing off his pieces on the London Fashion Week runway.
The shoes came in multiple lengths, from the gorgeous shiny edge ankle boots to the knee length variations, both of which also came in nude edged designs to give off the illusion of open toes. We had the thigh high and perhaps even higher length boots, as well as the gladiator strapped sandals with heels. The closed toe version also existed with the bar up the middle and the strap around the ankle. We saw each sandal come in electric blue and in light orange, while nude and black striped pumps adorned the feet of the models coming onto the catwalk later in the show. The nude and black sandals matched the chain mail style dresses beautifully, while the final pieces brought the focus back up to the dress alone by having each piece of footwear come in black only. Needless to say, the shoes were as lovely to behold as the dresses and jumpsuits themselves.
