David Koma Womenswear S/S12

The designer reinvents the warrior woman incorporating Polynesian tribal motifs and leather detailing onto minimal body con designs

Sharply cut dresses and body con silhouettes with a crisp, architectural air were the look du jour on David Koma's runway.  Heavily influenced by tribal signs and symbols from the Polynesian region, the tribal motifs appeared on sheer panelling and glimmering beaded abstract designs. The eye-catching tribal designs were even present in the designs of the structured sandals the models strutted down the catwalk in. The colour palette was largely monochrome with splashes of hot pink, bright yellow and turquoise. Koma further reinvented the modern warrior woman aesthetic by adding leather pleated peplum details on dresses and iridescent beading to greater enhanced the contours cuts featured in the collection.
