London: Without abandoning the feminine yet architectural looks that have become his trademark, up-and-comer David Koma updated his tailored body-con skirts and dresses by incorporating experimental fabrics, patterns and embellishments. Pieced constructions that juxtaposed sheer with opaque textiles created illusions of painted or tattooed skin; geometric tribal motifs were mimicked by iridescent sequins and Perspex appliqués. Koma also offered pants this time — flared trousers were shown in solid silks and alluringly sheer patterned burnouts. –Whitney Kessler
