The irony behind Damir Doma is that women had already fallen in love with his menswear creations before he even introduced a womenswear line.
For fall, Damir Doma explores his own world, his own classic unisex monarchal silhouettes, folded coats and wrapped pieces that make his clothes instantly recognizable. But he did a little more than offer his iconic pieces; he reinvented them. Last winter, Damir unveiled his version of the tuxedo, which was a sleek long vest with a satin collar. For Fall 2012, the tuxedo collar seem to be a starting point as well. He cleverly twisted it, hence modernizing it to the point of edginess. This time his “neo” tuxedo is cropped and has a hint of ‘kimono’. it features aged leather sleeves or is fully made of shiny leather with a front zipper. In another look the jacket is texturally divided horizontally in contrasting materials.
A vest made of supple stitched leather is worn over a puffed shoulder renaissance shirt. His signature folded coat is transformed into a supple jacket adorned with zippers, a sort of unique perfecto. A lightweight silk, floaty knitwear sweater gives the illusion of medieval chain mail over an appealing flowy, suede skirt. Lace, hand-pleated ruffle collars add sophistication.
Renown for its intemporel minimalism, Damir Doma has perfectly parlayed that success from its men’s line into its womenswear collection, taking off into new and exciting territories.
