POSITIVE + NEGATIVE PLAYS
London: Nothing if not consistent, young designer David Koma once again offered body-con frocks, pieced geometric shapes and peplums for F/W 12. As he has in the past, Koma presented several key concepts and featured them heavily throughout his collection; this time, positive versus negative space and weaving were major themes. The designer manipulated silhouettes with illusion tulle insets and strategic color-blocking, and created colorful dot designs by layering hole-punched outerwear over bright under-layers. Giant eyelets also served as a means for weaving buckled straps and fabric panels in and out of garments, creating self-belts and decorative ruffle details. Footwear designed in collaboration with Alain Quilici echoed garment shapes and patterns. —Whitney Kessler
