It was a mild winter morning in London today. Anticipation in the air, a few “I’m on the list” here, some “do you have an invitation” there, Alexa Chung walking by, and David Koma in the courtyard space at Somerset House. What more can I ask from my new life in the fashion capital?
The show’s notes mentioned “the slender elegance of the 1920′s and the minimal fashion detailing of the 1960′s”. The collection we saw today was about superb feminine shapes, celebrating tight waists and a love of peplum.
I’m a fan of David Koma, but today’s presentation wasn’t my favourite. I loved how his vision moved him to recreate some
classic and sober lines that other designers seem to be neglecting. Sadly, from where I was, I didn’t get to see the footwear by Alain Quilici which, I heard, was quite something
A special thank you to Modus PR for making this post possible.
