Short, tight, sexy. And why not? David Koma at Mugler is one of those appointments that fit like a glove or just as well as one of his dresses, actually. There’s something honest and straightforward about what he does and that shined through in today’s show at the Grand Palais. That he doesn’t feel the need to present something really out-there, to out-out-there the rest of the pack, is pretty admirable.
Speaking of sexy…circuit boards! Are you thinking Weird Science too? Koma found inspiration in the old things and the way they connect and link us 'to infinite possibilities'. This materialised in the embossed pattern on bodices, in the shiny copper plates that embellished a mini white leather skirt and the metallic trims on coats. Keeping the palette strict – black, dark navy, gleaming white and the occasional flash of colour like a green leather dress – worked. And it wasn’t all about little dresses either – sharp skinny trousers with simple tank tops and the tailoring looked particularly great as did the longer dresses – see Karlie Kloss in a sporty column of a thing with rivets running down the sides. No wonder Koma looked so happy taking his bow! Good job.
