Spotlight: DAMIR DOMA Designer/ Artist/ Creative Genius

If I may, I would like to reflect on one of my favorite men's (and now womens! check out his SILENT collection) designers. If I could encourage just one guy to wear one of his pieces, my goal would be met and I could sleep at night. Well...perhaps get more sleep. enjoy.

Damir Doma

The Croatian-born designer grew up in Germany and studied fashion in Munich and Berlin, where he graduated in 2004 withmagna 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.

In 2006, Doma launched his own label; and it was not long before he made a promising debut at Paris fashion week after presenting his first collection in June 2007. A strong following has ensued since, and one that has translated into commercial success in boutiques around the world too.

His collections to date, with layered sheer fabrics, and draped silhouettes, veer towards a thoughtful and complex sensibility.

Among his sources of inspiration, Doma lists emotions, nature and artists such as Gottfried Helnwein, Joseph Beuys and Gerhard Richter.

Paradoxically, Doma, with his quiet quest for a fleeting serenity and his creations of subtle and layered looks, somehow seeks tranquillity through a kind of gentle transgression.

His clothes just feel good. Damir, if you ever read this, I would love to meet you in person. If just to shake your hand and say my thanks.

Those might be the loveliest "comfy" clothes I have ever seen for men.
I have never seen men's wear that reminds me of the worlds softest origami - lovely.
