david koma s/s11.

the gimmicks - and i refer to the bells and whistles and silver tubes on his often costume-y pieces - david koma relied on the past couple of seasons were lost on me, to be honest.
yeah i know cheryl cole wore one of his dresses on the x factor last year, and i know beyoncé wore (the same?) one to some awards show around the same time (i'm gonna go ahead and assume it was the EMAs) but despite my dissertation topic, i couldn't care less about which celebs wear which labels.

but maybe the bells and whistles worked - that is to say, he's made a name for himself and had his own show this season.
and i liked it.

great shapes, great graphic colours, great (and flattering) cut out and embellishment details. cute, but wearable as opposed to costume-y.

random thought: i find it interesting that gareth pugh trod the same costume-y to covetable path not too long ago, and he's one of my favourite designers...
