Damir Doma continues to expand upon a minimal interchageable wardrobe composed of timeless, artisanal, hand crafted pieces for Fall 2017. The collection rendered largely in a monochromatic, earthy color palette consisting of graphite, black, ivory, cognac, and navy, with vibrant pops of burnt orange was very much on-trend.
The young Croatian designer excels at disrupting traditional tailoring by breaking up the strong lines of tailored coats and reconstructing them in softer shapes with rounded shoulders. Soft textile fabrics flowed in elegant wraparound silhouettes, or were bunched, and tied, hinting at avant-garde couture. His quiet poetry of elegant, floor length coats were countered by distressed chunky knits layered over slip dresses and turtlenecks. Roomy paper-bag trousers and skirts are held up by long belts dangling almost all the way down to the floor, while coats, dresses, and shirts are rendered modern and new with asymmetry.
Through soft textures and the treatment of fabric, the designer pays tribute to the “trace of the human hand,” as seen in the bleached velvet and satin pieces. A hint of the Western trend that has swept across the runways this year was also visible. He featured weathered buffalo hide trousers and the softest jacket imaginable in warm cognac brown. These were shown with black and white striped brogues and ankle boots, as well as slightly scrunched velvet boots reaching well above the knee. Accessories include statement necklaces with semi-precious stones embedded in resin by Sculpture Berlin.
