BEAUTY: Clothing--Damir Doma
The aesthetic of Turkish designer Damir Doma is a restrained, sober mix of Japanese cutting and a kind of futuristic, ascetic minimalism. It makes for gorgeous, solemn pieces of clothing (click on his name in the tags at the bottom to see previous posts). For his Fall-Winter '17-'18 collection at Milano Moda Uomo, Doma added a beautiful layer of texture to his canon. Leather, chunky sweaters, and two-tone knits embellished with velvet thread look great with his kimono-cut jackets, asymmetrical coats, and gorgeous high-waisted cinched trousers. The cumulative details of the entire collection aren't loud, they whisper...the collection is somehow ethnic and rooted in the past while existing in a future that may never arrive...
