While Steve is off gallivanting in Hong Kong with his lovely lady friend, I've been left behind replying to emails and watching the darts. Thankfully for me both the darts and the emails have been surprisingly interesting. When the lovely Charlotte at oki-ni dropped us an email to let us know that the Damir Doma archive had gone live, it rang some bells.
Wait- Damir Doma, the guy that did those amazing all red outfits?
Wait- Damir Doma, the guy who really knows a thing or two about shape?
Yep. (Man alive, that's a good outfit)
Wait, the man with those AMAZING boots with the zipper down the front?
Oh hells yes!
Wow, I love that guy. Why did I forget to post about him when I first saw his stuff? Anyway, a great choice for their archive series. Steve couldn't help but comment:
Hey Steve, quit muscling in on my posts! He's right though, it's great that they're showcasing someone so young and talented. Doma's designs are just that little bit left field- nicely androgynous with a bold use of colour and draping- while somehow still managing to be timeless (I know, I hate that word too). I am massively coveting his wide-legged trousers at the moment... and just look at these sandals!
Here's what Oki Ni's creative director, John Skelton, has to say about the man:
"Damir’s taste levels and attention to detail mixed with perfect execution and ability to create such a warm and powerful environment in which to show his work has captured the hearts and the minds of product enthusiasts all over the world."
And now if you don't mind, I'm going to finish watching the darts.
