David Koma for Topshop
Mere days after the launch of Mary Katrantzou's collection, Topshop have yet another treat in store for us. Tomorrow David Koma's collection for the High Street giant hits the rails - just in time for London Fashion Week! Fashionistas be warned - this collection is limited, so it won't be around for long.
Koma's distinct style has attracted a lot of attention since Cheryl Cole wore one of his creations during the X-Factor finals back in '09. The use of tubular steel, inspired by the metalwork sculptures of William Pye, continues to form a strong part of his work, as seen in this collaboration with Topshop. The man himself said:
'Topshop signifies youth and modernity and its spirit evokes "cool London". It was really exciting to work with the Topshop team as I felt they understood me as a designer and appreciated my need to make high quality product without compromising the design aesthetic, quality of fabric or finishing. They helped make my vision a reality and I'm thrilled with the result.'
Prices range from £100-£350, which may be a little pricey for the High Street, but reflects the quality and workmanship involved.
