Modus Press Day Spring/Summer 2011. DAVID KOMA

All time favorite show at fashion week. I am loving David Koma right now.

Inspiration for the David Koma Spring Summer 2011 collection began with a deep admiration for the Mariinsky theatre in Saint Petersburg.

He explores his past experience of the Russian Ballet, in particular Tchaikovsky's 'swan lake, which has inspired the contrasting perception of the ballerina- the physically and emotionally strong woman in a fragile frame.

David koma has uses python skin which he has deconstructed and positioned in a vertical, linear arrangements - inspired by the cubist artist Fernard Leger and his use of graphic lines and shadows to create a bold strong statement.

The David koma signature piece is the 50s inspired dress and the body conscious silhouette combined with a use of metal embellishment imitating python scales and strips of leather applique. 

Embossed leather, fine Italian wool, delicate chiffon and organza alongside python skin are some of the fabrics used in Spring Summer 2011 collection.

 Monochromatic black and white, with the infusion or powder yellow and pink, metallic gold and pearlescent snake leather embellishment. 

When it came to jewelry  Koma teamed up with a renowned jeweler Mawi creating exclusive geometric knuckle duster.

Exclusive shoes were designed by Alain Quilici to enhance the graphic concept of the collection.

Collection is currently stocked in Browns Focus and Harrods.
