Paris: Damir Doma’s S/S 14 went in a clinical and uniform direction, leaving behind some of the draped and gothic looks of the designer’s past in favor of crisp, flat volumes. Waist definition and balloon sleeves created a rounded silhouette, while subtle pleating and electric purple satin tops quilted into a chevron pattern added texture and dimension among a mostly neutral palette.— Nina Stotler
