David Koma Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – London Fashion Week

The David Koma spring/summer 2014 collection showcased at London Fashion Week was something extraordinary in all the senses of the word. The main thematic concentration of the line was the martial-art inspired approach. All the pieces were created with a touch of the spirit of Kyudo, a Japanese martial art, the name of which is interpreted as “the way of the bow”. In fact, the way of the bow of David Koma went through London this time and fascinated everyone with its charming attack.

The main focus of the David Koma spring/summer 2014 collection was the strictly shaped silhouettes, reminding of the martial art uniforms. The opening piece of the line was a monotone A-shaped knee length dress, with an interesting touch of the Japanese influence and forceful beauty of the woman. This was followed by a similarly shaped black dress with curious lines of transparency between the black stripes.
Furthermore, awesome black and white compositions went on with the line, even more vividly emphasizing the ideological accent of the collection. It’s here that leather parts start appearing on the runway, with their strict and sharp croppings, especially evident round the sleeves and the necklines. Asymmetrical dresses were another clue to finding out the diversity of the shapes put within the concept of uniform approach. The delightfulness of the pieces became visible with the help of a super-cute cream gather skirt cut at the level of the knee.

Finally, bluish motives appeared on the catwalk put within wonderful sleeveless knee length dresses. The navy tones followed the light blue, as a logical cohesion of the pieces. Looking at the pieces you have an impression that the models are going to take out their swords and bows with arrows right away and fight all over the runway. This is a perfect exemplification of a unique metamorphosis of aggression into charming femininity and chic.
