So I’m currently counting down the days till the 21st of January, where at 19:00 GMT I will be watching the LIVE Damir Doma AW12/13 show entitled ‘SOMEWHERE, SOMEONE IS WAITING FOR YOU’ over on NOWFASHION. The more time I take to think about Damir Doma as a collection and as a designer, the more I realise how prominent it is within my wardrobe. I recently came to the decision that everything I own, I adore and engage with when wearing it, creating that indescribable feeling of comfort and moment where you are at one with yourself.
SILENT has always been one of those collections I run to when one is in need of solid staple basics, I suppose you could say it’s of a higher level of what DRKSHDW is to Rick Owens Mainline. However, these images have made me question whether it will be just basics I would be looking to pick up from this collection. As a lookbook it’s flawless, the looks show thought, untouchable proportions with tonnes of inspiration, you couldn’t ask for more. Even from the images we have, the collection shows fabrics and shapes that you would expect to see from the mainline offerings, something that I’m elated by but then doubt creeps in as to whether it will keep it’s attractive price point status if it continues to excel as much as it has. Only time will tell.
