Designer to Watch: Damir Doma

I started following Damir Doma in 2012, when I stumbled upon his fab cape-like, high-low Silent Damir Doma cardigan on Yoox ... My other weakness (aside from cuffs) is bold, dramatic cardis.

This particular one came with a nice, surprising detail that wasn't shown in the pictures. The sleeves weren't separate. It was a one-cut piece, were the sleeve openings were sewn in, creating a cape-like effect with the attached sleeves. Yep, I just couldn't resist doing a minor tweak; removing some of the stitches so the "attached sleeve" would be fitted from only the elbow to the wrist ... to up the dramatic diva factor.

I loved my cardi and was hooked on the luxe, urban nomad feel of his designs. I instantly became a loyal fan and follower. Here are some of my favorite looks from Damir Doma...
