The exclusive video Installation explores the essence and core of the Damir Doma’s universe, further enhancing his quest to fuse mind, body and spirit.
Romeo and Juliet from stone and cement; two buildings, one dark and female the other light and male are uncontrollably drawn to each other in a dark void. Their courtship is like a monumental ballet, slowly drawing closer and closer to one another. The male form springs out of the light, twisting and curling beneath his stone skin, while the female form writhes behind her ashen concrete.
Ghosts in architecture will be presented in Berlin during Fashion week at and exclusive launch event.
Damir Doma’s collections seem lit by a soft, melancholic quest for fluidity. Inspired by identity’s multiple expressions and the link with the fragile, ephemeral quality of the body, he creates pieces that explore interpretations of contemporary masculinity.
The Croatian-born designer grew up in Germany and studied fashion in Munich and Berlin, where he graduated in 2004 with magna cum laude for the best collection.
The young designer then went to Antwerp, where he worked for Raf Simons and Dirk Schoenberger. It was his time spent at Raf Simons in particular that broadened and shaped Doma’s perception of fashion and the arts. Under Simon’s mentorship, the creation of his personal aesthetics was kindled; leading him to infuse soulfulness and sensitivity into his work.
SILENT is the avant-garde casual collection designed by Damir Doma and his creative team. SILENT is the antitheses to loud mass-market fashion. The range of soft and flowing jerseys, denim, leather bags and accessories are all considered, avoiding excessive design elements whilst retaining as much of the fabric’s raw & organic form as possible. The result is a line of beautiful, effortless garments that are truly wearable and will work alone or as part of a complete look.
