David Koma SS22

The collection

For Spring-Summer 2022, David Koma’s study of swimming costumes takes its point of departure in the athleticism core to that duality. Captured in film at the London Aquatics Centre designed by Zaha Hadid, the collection enters into a dialogue between the architect’s characteristic lines and the structural properties of the aquatic wardrobe. A series of tech lycra dresses are hybridised with swimwear withhints atwetsuits, while the plume trims of longer silhouettes mimicunderwater movement.Transparent sequins create the illusion of garments recently submerged in water. The memory of swimwear appearsinoutlines and cut-outs on colour-blocked dresses, conjuring thedetectible curves of swimming costume.

The hair

International Artistic Director and British Hairdresser of the Year nominee, Cos Sakkas, Efi Davies and the TONI&GUY Session Team create wetlook to coincide with Koma’s aquatic theme with late 1930’s/early 1940’s influences seen within the partings and detail on the face.
