Orange set the tone to Damir Doma’s first womens’ collection. While not received as a strong debut or at least in comparison to his men’s established look. The designer has gained momentum and practice. This fall 2012 marks Doma’s fourth season in the women’s wear circuit and a warmer shade of orange has reappeared. A very faint olive, old-plum, and dusty-salmon were all colors that might make this collection his most colorful to date.
The first portion of the collection delivered a boyish outerwear that seemed almost quite English. A U-Shaped varsity jacket was paired with relaxed riding pants. Smashed conductor velvet caps remained slanted on the models’ heads. High collars as well as turtleneck layering reinforced the masculinity that will hopefully continue in upcoming collections by the Croatian born designer. A velvet cape took us back to a very gothic England and the crucifix gave it the seal of old world.
