Favouring intimacy, he’s looking to discover richness and luxurious textures that he uses to create the enveloping clothes, like cocoons, such as oversized coats. The tailoring keeps its place, made in tones revolved around black. The designer focuses on the handmade, the artisanat, all by accentuating the imperfections, which appear to be visible. The threads on the ends of a piece of clothing, sections of fabrics found on the jackets, whilst certain pieces appeared without sleeves, almost unfinished. The cotton, linen, knitwear, the double cashmere, the jacquard, become the stand out materials in the tones that are always earthy, based on white, grey, brown and black.

“It was the idea to create something cocoon-ish, something that was all over you at the same time it should not be aggressive, but it almost feels like linen sheets you know, linen sheets over the windows, and I think it’s very pure and very warm. For me already for the men’s and also for the women’s it’s all about texture, it’s about the definition of luxury, the definition of what my work is about, and what my brand is about. A lot of construction, a lot of shape, a very typically me collection. What is also very special for me this season, I tried to cast personalities, I tried to go a little bit away from the classic model casting towards something that is more representative of my woman, my customer.” – David Doma
