    Damir Doma interviewed in Têtu magazine (France) by Alex Drouot.

    DAMIR DOMA – THE SOFT LEATHER

    At 30 years old, he is one of the most edgy designers, saluted by the critics and loved by sophisticated buyers. It must be said that this guy is not timid – he hasn’t stopped evolving the mens wardrobe since his first collection in Spring Summer 2008 – he has also shown womenswear since Autumn Winter 2010. Logically, his route has been that of a man who has travelled both geographical and intellectual frontiers. Croatian-born, brought up amidst the toiles in the manufacturing atelier of his mother in Bavaria, it’s the outer-Rhine where he cut his teeth, before tapping the vein of Belgian fashion and revealing his fashion icons as diverse as Giorgio Armani and Anne-Marie Beretta. From this crossover springs a style without concession, always strong in structure – affirmed by sharp silhouette s in specific volumes, mastery of ‘oversized’ – and soft in materials – he loves the caresse of cashmere and it’s shadow in the light. The result has seduced many different men, from Jared Leto to Robert Pattinson. Today you can check out his temporary space at 40, rue de Sévigné within L’Eclaireur, before discovering his boutique on Faubourg Saint-Honoré at the end of December. We can’t wait…

    Style, is it innate or is it learned? Style is education and intellect. Elegance is instinct and intuition.

    What are three must-have items in a good mens wardrobe? A long beautiful coat, a cashmere knit and a pair of Damir Doma trousers!

    Three garments that you just can’t live without? A pair of black linen DD trousers, DD cashmere tee shirts and my bomber jackets.

    A garment or accessory that you really hate? White tank tops.

    Must-have winter accessory? A cashmere scarf and a pair of paper-thin leather gloves.

    Disguise you would rent for a costume party? A monkey costume!

    The detail that kills fashion? The shoes. They are the difference between yes, or no.

    Tracksuits and sports shorts: yes or no? Tracksuit definitely not, shorts OK.

    A garment we shouldn’t wear after 40? A hoody and board shorts.

    A vital product in your washbag? Face cream and a hair wax.

    Soap or shower gel? Shower gel.

    Do you wash colours with whites? Yes!

    Whats the best accessory on a nude man? Tennis socks.

    Stars you would love to dress? David Bowie and Veruschka.

    What message would you put on a white tee shirt? “Never forget”.

    Do you buy clothes online? No.

    Your worst enemy in fashion? Time.

    The pocket: patch, flap, welt, gusset or raglan? Welt.

    Briefs? Boxers? Trunks? Nothing? White cotton boxers.

    Do you iron your underwear? No.

    Perfume, or natural? Perfume for night, natural for daytime.

    Deodorant: Spray or stick? None.

    A style god? David Bowie.

    Sneakers, yes or no? Yes.

    Chest: plucked, shaved or natural? Natural.

    Makeup: for or against? I’m for natural. Beauty comes from within.

    The best place on the body for a tattoo? Please no tattoos! Except if it’s a true and profound sign.

    The best place for a piercing? No piercing, please…

    When did you wear your first dress? If i think about some of my menswear designs that are like dresses, i guess it’s been about four years!

    Make sure you set aside round trip airfare to NZ for me. It ain't cheap!

    The only other specific items I want for this AW are:
    Inis Meain crewneck
    insulated deerskin gloves
    a couple of wool scarves for winter
    maybe a pair of wool trousers

    You wouldn't sail?


    Well then, you don't even have a long-term endpoint?

    Can you imagine a 4 season wardrobe you'd be 100% content with?

    Thinking in terms of type of item, not actual item might help.

    E.g. "I need 2 winter coats", not "I need a NC cameraman and a TF overcoat".

    Aside from that stuff listed above, I really don't need anything else in the long term. I could probably use some more decent tees for summer, but that's it.

    On what kind of weird post per page setting are you running ? You know 40 is the golden standard.



    Lol. That is actually me.

    Spent almost two grand over the year on building a solid wardrobe, received a letter that I have to join the army in 2 years. Farewell, happy fields where joy forever dwells; hail horror, hail infernal army :violin:
