DAVID KOMA'S RESORT 2021 COLLECTION

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, David Koma was unable to host a show or presentation this season.

"I think it's important to remain true to yourself and to remain true to what you believe, no matter what," David Koma says from his London studio. The meaning of that in the Koma universe is glamor — but how to marry a Koma piece's sexy, slinky appeal with the slouchy, ready-for-Zoom style of COVID-19 self-isolation "work from home fits?" Koma's approach is a clever combination of coziness and camp.

Here the stretch corsets from his Fall 2020 show reappear. They are more like loungewear than babe-wear without boning, capable of being tucked into stretch patent leather bike shorts or a knit miniskirt in bright bubblegum pink. Long crystal mesh dresses are paired with knitwear or slouchy blazers, and even a neon-green metallic off-the-shoulder dress has a four-way stretch, making it the kind of Zoom party-to-couch-potato item a Koma vamp may be looking for during her homestay. Destined to arrive this fall and winter in stories, these clothes also have plenty of potential for going-out. Koma's women will cheerfully walk back into it in crystals, neons, and body-con dresses as the world open up. Also don't think of it as a return to normal — by fusing a more streamlined silhouette with new elements of comfort and stressing it, Koma shows he can adapt to a changing environment.

Immediately after graduation David Koma launched his eponymous ready-to-wear brand, and has been a London Fashion Week participant ever since. The brand has received numerous awards throughout the years including Fashion Forward in 2013, NEWGEN sponsorship in 2010, and Vauxhall Fashion Scout in 2009. David Koma has been shortlisted to the British Fashion Council/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2018 and 2019. Koma held the position of creative director at Mugler from December 2013 till December 2017.
