It was a big day for the British labels today. On front row was Samantha Cameron, supporting the newgen designers David Koma and Holly Fulton. Daphne Guiness also attending looked resplendant, as usual. Spots are proving a hit this season, Marc Jacobs in NY and David Koma here in London.
Clean and stream lined silhouettes for the opening section had varying sized circles laser cut out of the panels or printed onto the clothes, creating a precise and graphic symmetry. Black and nude dominated before the colours seeped in via a face print and pom pom trims on the shoulders, cuffs and finally a ruff style in bright yellow. The laser cut shells were layered over a green, blue or pink base. The spotted capes and long A-line skirts in the middle of the show were a welcome change of silhouette in amongst the more structured shapes, and proving Koma can create movement.
