CQ First: David Koma for Topshop
The latest designer to join Topshop's growing stable of collaborators is David Koma, who has a cult following of celebs including Cheryl Cole. The Georgian-born designer has created five pieces for the retailer including a woollen halterneck dress, a bodycon dress trimmed with silver embellishments, a mini skirt and belt which play on Koma's interest in tough metal and femininity.
Koma says: "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 a 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."
The collection goes on sale from February 18, with prices ranging from £100 to £350.
