The Damir Doma Spring 2012 collection was a return to the aesthetic and sensibilities that originally drew attention to the Croatian designer in such a big way.
This season, Damir Doma has foregone the softer, floatier pieces of some of his previous collections, and crafted something with a real edge. The innovative fabrications that Doma has used best showcase this, with bold, mesh inserts present on both sharply tailored jackets and relaxed fitting pants. Loose weave, coarse Damir Doma knitwear and oversized shorts are also executed in a range of meticulously thought out fabrics that combine linen, light wool mixes, suede and a unique blend of silk and metal.
The oversized shorts are also particularly key to this season's selection, constructed from combinations of linen and soft lambskin leather. They provide a more left-field alternative for layering with silkier offerings from Dries Van Noten and other, more relaxed mainline brands.
- From the Damir Doma Spring 2012 collection, crafted from linen with a sheer black panel on the back.
- Interesting variation on the wing tip collar, with two square-cut panels of linen attached to the inside of each shoulder.
- Can be worn pointed outwards or hidden away inside the jacket.
