A MOOD PIECE, DAVID KOMA: ATTACK OF THE FURRY BEASTS


What’s bodycon meets waves of spots? Octopus in body armour, my mind muses, as my mouth hangs nonchalantly open. 

David Koma’s incredible, organic spot prints that give the illusion of strong structures are not something you can just take your eyes off. But then, why would you? I’m falling head over heels for the body armour type pieces in black and nude, in patent and matte leather, fur trims and pom-poms. Black and grey spot prints are instant favourites, too.

And then, all spotty-furry-pom-pom-primary-colour hell breaks loose, as more waves and rows of spots, faces, leather panels and a host of predatory pom-poms jump on black dresses, stick their claws in skirts and chew on jackets in red, emerald green, electric blue, baby blue and sunshine yellow, creeping up arms, curling around necks or casually hanging around waistlines. Jeez, I get a strange high just looking at them! The world is buzzing with activity, and right in the middle of it is where I want to be.
