I arrived in Paris two days after Damir showed his women fall collection, what a pity you might think, but instead I got to experience something even better!
My PARIS trip was a hectic one, squeezing in fashion shows between shopping for miss R, showroom appointments and a session with a possible new client I've been waiting for to happen about three months (more on that later!). I popped by the DAMIR DOMA showroom on the Sunday (!) and was welcomed by the grey eyed designer himself surrounded by his white/black/reddish brown/mustard-yellow shaded fall collection. Spot on colorscale! We took seat in front of the big LCD screen where the new fashion show was looped and Damir sat down next to me, filled me in with details about the styles + a couple of "I can see you in this"! And I soo agree, cause Damir designs for a woman like me (I just stopped myself from writing "modern woman" but wohaaa those fashion bunkum you have to go somewhere else for...!). You maybe see Decida Style as synonymous with accessory and more -rather than less- is more (-that is; compered to Swedes) but still beneath it all there is a silouette I care for. And despite Damir's ageless elegance (did I just complain over bunkum...) at first sight, there are the hints from the street, do you see the tall tee, the do-rags, the biker shorts, the creepers?! There are similarities between Damir and Alexander Wang too, even if the approach is a bit different. Hands down, I need to cop some of this collection when it's out, and you know what -I wont be the only one wearing it, but more on that in the future!
BTW: The jacket Robyn got on here is Damir Doma! (Not my idea with all that photoshopping though)
