Spring – Summer 2019

SPRING – SUMMER 2019

AN IMMEDIATE AND DIRECT MESSAGE.
A MINIMAL, POETIC TAKE ON SPORTSWEAR.

FOR THE SPRING/SUMMER 2019 SEASON, DAMIR DOMA REWORKS THE ICONIC CODES OF HIS PERSONAL AESTHETIC TO DELIVER A COHESIVE WARDROBE SEAMLESSLY BLENDING SPORT AND STREET REFERENCES INTO A URBAN, MODERN LOOK. SHAPES ARE UNFUSSY AND UNCOMPLICATED. TEXTURES ARE RICH AND SOPHISTICATED. FRESH SUMMER FABRICS, INCLUDING COTTON, LINEN AND JAPANESE NYLON, GIVES AN AIRY, BREEZY FEEL TO THE LINEUP.

METROPOLITAN STAPLES ARE ELEVATED WITH SPECIAL FINISHING AND TREATMENTS. THEY REMAIN INTENTIONALLY UNPRETENTIOUS, WHILE EXUDING AN EDGY, CONCEPTUAL VIBE. THEY PERFECTLY COMBINE FUNCTIONALITY AND EMOTION. THEY ARE DESIRABLE CLOTHES, WHICH ARE MEANT TO BE WORN IN THE EVERYDAY LIFE.

EVEN IF THE DESIGNER KEPT THE SILHOUETTES SIMPLE, HE PLAYED WITH SPECIAL TRICKS.
TAKING INSPIRATION FROM JAPANESE ORIGAMI, COTTON PANTS AND PARKAS WERE FOLDED AND THEN PRINTED TO OBTAIN CHARMING ABSTRACT PATTERNS.
DIGITAL PRINTS OF BLEACHED NET FABRICS WERE SPLASHED ON SUMMER COATS, OVERSIZED SHIRTS AND SHORT PANTS FOR AN INTRIGUING TROMP-L’OEIL EFFECT. AT THE SAME TIME, ACTUAL NET WAS LAYERED ON COTTON ON A VEST INJECTED WITH A UTILITARIAN FEEL.

SEDUCED BY AN ARTWORK BY SHEILA HICKS SHOWCASED AT THE CENTRE POMPIDOU IN PARIS, THE DESIGNER PLAYED WITH MULTIPLE POCKETS, WHICH HE APPLIED ON A SLEEVELESS TUNIC TOP AND A HOODED JACKET, BOTH CRAFTED FROM A COLD WASHED COTTON IN A BOLD NEON PINK TONE. FOR A MORE SUBDUED EFFECT, PINK WAS ALSO AIR SPRAYED ON A MILITARY GREEN BOMBER TO OBTAIN A DEGRADE EFFECT.

THE COLLECTION WAS COMPLETED WITH A RANGE OF COLLABORATIONS WITH PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL BRANDS.
GERMAN EYEWEAR SPECIALIST MYKITA MANUFACTURED THE “MONOGRAM” FRAMES, FEATURING A QUIRKY, SLIGHTLY FUTURISTIC SILHOUETTE REPRODUCING DAMIR DOMA’S DD LOGO. THE BRAND COLLABORATED WITH JAPANESE ACCESSORIES LABEL MASTER-PIECE FOR A RANGE OF FANNY PACKS, BACKPACKS AND SMALL POUCHES CRAFTED FROM NET, WHILE ITALIAN FOOTWEAR COMPANY OFFICINE CREATIVE DEVELOPED FOUR FOOTWEAR STYLE, INCLUDING A REVISITED CHUKKA BOOT, A SANDAL MIXING RUBBER AND LEATHER, AS WELL AS A SLIP-ON AND A CHUNKY RUNNING SHOE.
