In spite of the fact, that new collection is influenced by the style of the Eighties, Koma managed to stand out in his interpretation and make it his own by blending subtle
Eighties references — a puff sleeve here, a crystal-embellished zip there — with his signature graphic lines and flair for modernism, says the article.
