Designer Radar: David Koma’s Futuristic Style

What do you get when structured silhouettes, vibrant accent colors and powerful patterns collide? A futuristic take on bold and beautiful that only fashion mastermind David Koma could create. The edgy designer’s groundbreaking Spring/Summer 2012 collection has quickly made him our latest fashion muse. Just one look at his powerful, sexy plays on masculine-feminine and you’ll see why.

Punches of blue, magenta and acid yellow make each powerful look in David Koma’s collection stand out like an exclamation point. His day looks use white purposefully as a canvas for his accent colors, and his dark, sexy night garments speak volumes while keeping a sleek silhouette. So what ties all the looks together? Edgy tribal prints that had us thinking back to India as each look came down the runway.

A futuristic take on the classic pencil skirt, from David Koma's Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

David Koma’s take on a classic pencil skirt is this stunning, high-waisted white skirt with a thick band of magenta tribal print above the knee. The skirt is paired with a long-sleeve top that features magenta tribal cutout work through its bodice. But the real surprise in this stunner is sheer long sleeves that make the look’s white geometric shapes pop.

This yellow dress exemplifies David Koma's bold use of color.

We love how this bold yellow and black dress takes a tribal spin on the peplum waist showing up in a lot of this season’s runway fashion. Heavy black fringe adds a masculine edge to this feminine silhouette and picks up the same tribal details seen in David Koma’s other runway looks.

David’s night looks pair sheer fabric with high-cut necklines to mix sexy and sophisticated. One standout was this pairing of sheer tribal print pants and a structured black vest with metallic trim and military-inspired sleeves. And the collection’s ultimate power player is this stunning dress that mixes blue, black and sheer material as a backdrop for the collection’s signature geometric tribal patterning.

If David Koma’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection is the new face of futuristic fashion, count Luxemi in!
