David Koma AW14 at London Fashion Week

I cannot describe how much I loved David Koma's show at LFW today. There were some really beautiful techniques used within the collection including leather weaves, cutouts and sheer panelling. Inspiration came from the portrayal of women in Renaissance paintings. Koma took this and turned dresses into sharp, structured corset style designs with hand-woven leather strips. 

Supple leather, ponyskin and flocked chiffon came in a palette of black, cobalt blue, grey and violet, highlighted by a few cream pieces.

The fitted silhouette was contrasted with boxy outerwear, loose fitting trousers and bell-shaped sleeves. This brought a more masculine edge to this season's collection. 

My favourite details were the cutouts, off-shoulder necklines and woven strips.

Shoe designer, Alain Quilici collaborated with Koma to create open-toe boots and cutout sandals.
