QUIET FUTURISM
Paris: Damir Doma presented a strict, cosmopolitan collection inflected with quiet futurism. There was an an early 90s vibe with a rounded slim silhouette and raglan sleeves, concealed buttons, ruched high collars and cropped bomber jackets. “It’s about a cosmopolitan woman, she’s very elegant, well traveled and independent,” Damir Doma told us, post show. The press notes told a story of a subtle rebel, her vagrant spirit parading through the salons of a 19th century hotel particulier. The venue space complemented the tale, as models strode from one room to another in a beautiful Parisian setting. There were thoughtful, quiet details throughout, like an inverted pleat down a swing coat’s spine and a darted bust on a long blazer. Metallic zips suggested speed and motion, used as back splits of pencil skirts and at collarless biker jackets, which were shorn off at the hip and wide as a bolero. Classic fabrics like houndstooth bouclé and Melton wools trimmed with leathers were combined with nylons for a futuristic clean look.”The nylons and technical elements comes from my sportswear background,” explained Damir. Sober ensembles of lacquered wool tweeds, biker gilets and jackets in plush castor fur got a  pop with luminous polyamides in raspberry.  “It was a masculine starting point, with fabrics turning very feminine and sophisticated with a utilitarian ambiance,” continued Damir, who managed to capture the effortless and efficient vibe that defines a modern day urban woman. —Celia Ingesson
