Sweet transition from Damir Doma Fall 2016 Menswear collection. Volume and proportions are pleasing to the eye.
Damir Doma presented his Fall 2016 Menswear collection under the imposing steel canopies of the city’s main railway station, Platform 22, Milano Centrale. The setting was a deliberate one, being the favorite place of Doma himself. He mentioned that he’s lucky he got the venue for free, because someone who works at the station loves the brand.
Following his move to Milan and the merger of his men’s and women’s lines, this was his first collection fully managed out of Italy. And Doma was in a generous mood, playing with volumes and proportions. He is really working his pieces with large proportions. These pieces are constructed on cotton, knits, wool, leather and woven fabrics. All the pieces in the collection do not benefit from the large proportions formed by the huge volumes. Some of them are more closely cut to the body, as we see in the legs. His camel and olive coats, some waisted with a playful horizontal strip of fringe, were painstakingly shaped compressed cocoons.
The white pieces are what grab the attention most from this collection. The sleeves are extremely long. These garments have unfinished, string edges. The Japanese inspirations that are inextricably linked to Damir Doma’s universe are indeed present. However here, they bless the collection with a Jedi feel. This is something that is very pleasing to the eye.
