DAMIR DOMA Fall/Winter 2013 - Page 2

post #16 of 45
fall is kinda more clothes and less fantasy. it's much more wearable. if i actually saw anyone wearing the looks you posted in real life, synth, i'm sure i'd make some crack about how the guy takes himself really seriously. but the fall stuff, i'd probably think it's cool. so as clothes, i do think some of the fall stuff is good, and I'm pretty sure if I saw it on a rack I'd probably like it.

but as a show, it's boring. no narrative, no fantasy. just clothes. like you said. my biggest gripe about damir is that he hasn't really found a way to put the fantasy and the clothes together. it's kinda all one or the other. (just to give examples of what I mean, I would say Dries, Ann, and Yohji are all very good at putting the fantasy and the clothes together). maybe that's completely subjective. i just feel that way because i personally think a lot of damir's really high concept stuff just can't be worn in real life without looking kinda tool-ish (I actually watched the video of spring 11 earlier and laughed out loud at some of the looks because they were so dramatic). anyway, there's my inexpert opinion.

No, I agree - but I guess I really liked that about the looks I posted, and I think that's what drew me to the collections in the first place. Sort of apologetically Arrakian. I only own a couple of his pieces, and that's partly the reason, but I guess if I lived alone in the desert with nothing but my millions to comfort me, I probably would have bought a lot of it.

synthèse, there is no boat, most likely just a raft of shoddily tied palm. there is also a space vessel, to which the raft takes us. welcome aboard !

lot of valid points here but i don't think i agree with this particular bit. firstly taking oneself too seriously irrespective of habillement may be problematic. that's just a mindset, well for me at least. secondly, 'real life' here seems constrained by predefined notions and societal expectations. i'm not advocating complete disregard, just the dissolution of superficial rigidities.

i liked the dark lord era better, but there's nothing wrong with a designer developing a new aesthetic. maybe next season it'll be better.

some looks i like, but a lot of it looks terrible and is derivative

Looking at the old seasons again I feel like all that's been shown in the last couple of collections was already there since the beginning. Maybe not so much in the first three collections or so (those have since been remade through Silent more or less, which probably explains why so many early Damir enthusiasts prefer it to the mainline today) but since 2010 at least. Seems like DD literally streamlined his silhouettes and progressively did away with all that was sticking out, the gauzy shit was the first to go, the drapey stuff was next. This results in collections that feel somewhat sterile in comparison but actually pretty close to what he's always done, yeah I think sterile is a fitting term...

The first three collections are really good IMO, then he loses me.  Interesting because I feel like the rest of you like the ones after that.

I like fall 2008 and 2009 a lot. I like spring 2012 too. Fall 2012 was cool in a crazy kinda way. I even like spring 2013 quite a bit. Don't really have a favorite overall (maybe fw2008). I don't know. I think a lot of stuff here and there is really good, but in each collection there's stuff I'm not loving mixed in.
