is the opening line of a Talking Heads song that inspired Damir Doma. The lyrics carried a special meaning for Damir Doma, who recently relocated his company from Paris to Milan, merging his women’s and men’s in an attempt to make timing and production streamlined. Through the changes, the brand managed to keep its delicate appeal and this spring season was a testament to that. Men’s and women’s were equally represented, building off each other. Silhouettes are slim and elongated, at times cinched around the ribs, producing a leanness and a sense of order among Damir Doma’s distressed fabrications which are worked to great effect. There is paper-thin silk for a transparent rain parka, patchwork, bleach-printed viscose worn as “flags”, over T-shirts and handmade knits that he artfully embroidered with ribbons and scraps of fabric. There was also a lot of movement in the looks, which were either layered — bombers over kimono-wrapped jackets and cropped voluminous pants, for example — or pierced together with metal rings, best seen on vests that had a unisex appeal. “Never for money. Only for love,” went the Talking Heads chorus.
