London: Inspired by artist Yayoi Kusama’s famous polka-dots, young designer David Koma featured them in graphic patterns on ladylike silhouettes, much like Marc Jacobs did last week in New York. Koma applied dots in the form of leather appliqués and fur puffs, and circular cutouts in fabrics created hole-punched motifs. Color was incorporated more and more as the show progressed, with vibrant photo prints and bright pompoms echoing the round shapes. Though there was an obvious theme, Koma’s latest looks stayed true to the clean, architectural aesthetic for which he is known.
