Damir Doma S/S 2012BY Katrina Tan / Oct 06 11 @ 8:16 AM
This S/S 2012 marks the first year since Damir Doma stepped into the womenswear game, with the designer debuting a well-received premiere collection at the last S/S Paris Fashion Week. Originally a menswear designer, Damir delivers quite an interesting take on female fashion and form. "Doma's aesthetic is a minimal one; he prefers a clean, uncluttered silhouette," describes Nicole Phelps of Style.com after seeing the designer's previous F/W 2011 show.
Well, this season doesn't skip a step, as Damir retains the signature serene silhouette he's known for. Touches of his menswear background are seen in the form of detailed jackets, majestic sweeping cloaks, and a notable emphasis on collars and cover-ups. But with a year's worth of working in female fashion under his belt, he has also injected some fresh touches—a rich, burnished gold palette, exquisite almost Grecian-like draping, and standout brass accessories. Hitting the sweet spot between menswear and womenswear, while playing to a girl's love for layering, Damir's latest collection provides us with a look that's both a comfortable and chic.
