You might have noticed that in the narrative of the spring 2013 collections, sexiness ain’t what it used to be, profile-wise, both here in London and in New York. Oh, there are printed, pretty, inventive, conceptual, urban, minimalistic, embellished—the list goes on, and on, and on—clothes. But, for the most part (actually, make that nearly every last part) anything that riffs on an eroticized, if tasteful, exalting of the body is as thin on the ground as some of the diaphanous fabrics that have been wafting around.
That thought is clearly on David Koma’s mind, because once again he’s plundering the idea of curvaceous lines and angular shapes to interplay in his series of short, sculptural, slick dresses that don’t mind invoking the other's word. Let’s just say you won’t need three guesses as to what that is. Yep, you got it in one.
