{LFW Fall 16 RTW} David Koma’s Metal Pop Art

David Koma‘s Fall 2016 RTW collection was all about modern art and metallics. Koma referenced sculptor Frank Cota, a metal smith known for abstract mechanical pop art. His works are like 3D layered De Stijl installations with pops of primary colors and geometric shapes. They are almost linear industrial, almost steam punk. An incredible inspiration for fashion.

The resulting garments were streamlined, geometric, well-constructed, and definitely David Koma asymmetrical and sexy. His signature high side slit was present as well as the asymmetrical hemline mini skirts, and racer fronts.

But we also saw some completely new techniques and silhouettes from Koma this season, with the impeccably tailored cashmere coats, and rounded shoulders paired with incredibly oversized cinch belts, creating a surprisingly flattering effect.
