For his A/W11 Collection, David Koma was inspired by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, who also happens to be a massive fan of polka dots and that's how BIG polka-dot prints turned-out to be a huge feature in this particular collection including circular cut-outs and colourful fur pom-poms sewn onto shoulders, hips, arms and anywhere else they could fit - I actually enjoyed this idea very much as it turned a sophisticated collection into something young and fun with the simple application of a pom-pom and a splash of colour - I bet Ri-Ri & Gaga will soon be all over this collection as we know how they love their seasonal fix of Koma.

This seasons at Bora Aksu featured heavy layers and armored bodices, stiff capes and deconstructed tailoring. As highlighted by Bora and proven quite evident in the display itself; It was clear that traditional menswear tailoring had played a big role in this collection if not been the starting point.

For a collection that seemed well thought and put together it however was slightly more heavier and textured than Aksu's usual signature. And though darker than normal, there was a lovely regular injection of emerald green through-out the collection - It created a nice tonal balance and was quite fleshing to see a bit of colour in the midst of all those neutral and dark shades.
