Raw Edgesby Eyal de Leeuw | 15.10.12
Talking about his new store located in a hidden alley on Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the young Croatian designer Damir Doma described his work as “working with oppositions; working with precious things, but at the same time being very raw and pure,” (WWD)
Since he launched his own line in Paris in 2007 he has been known for his nomad style clothes, sensitive use of textures and his dark Gothic use of draping. His new store is an opportunity to explore themes like textures, rawness, purity and minimalism – topics that he introduced to menswear culture in the past few years.
Although he is only 31 (when my dear friend M’ heard that, she said, “I’m too old for this world”), The Garconniere is looking forward to hear what Doma has to say at HoF this week. After all, it’s rare to meet someone who made think dark shirts so coveted again.
