David Koma

The 20th century inspired detailing balanced the modernity of the silhouettes.

The acid fluoro green was perhaps a too-hard counter-declaration of modernity. By expanding his range a little, Koma hinted at much more to come beyond it.

Interesting use of asymmetry, detailing and acidic green broke melancholy of the dark and intense color pallet.

The best looks employed the military button-and-loop fasteners of cavalry uniforms to toughen up a slip dress, and give tight pants and sleeves some breathing room, and an extra decorative flourish.

David Koma etched the theme lightly within the narrow framework of his sharp and sexy aesthetic.

Most of the silhouettes were short and tight, to which he added three main Russian motifs: puffed sleeves; hussar bullion and detailing; and Fabergé embellishments.
