The timeless appeal of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, a symbol of beauty and femininity has been a subject of continuous admiration by artists and is often portrayed as an ethereal nude sculpture. For Resort 2024, the Koma Girl is reimagined as an omnipotent ancient goddess, placed upon a symbolic pedestal to be celebrated for her enchanting beauty and strength. This season, David Koma studies a relationship between art and beauty and turns to the divine feminine for inspiration, creating a collection steeped in aquatic mythology.
Born from the sea foam and widely worshipped as a goddess of the ocean, Aphrodite’s close association with water is interpreted in the use of transparent water-like sequin fabric in aqua green and soft pink, seen as body-contouring crop tops and mermaid-esque skirts with elongated trains.
According to Greek mythology, the fish is a symbol of the goddess Aphrodite, who was able to transform into one to escape from harm. To celebrate her otherworldly powers, fish elements appear throughout the collection. Angelfish are reimagined in plexi mirror and black crystal embroidery, seductively positioned across model’s busts; iridescent crystal Koi fluidly wrap around the body, forming the edges of sensual cut-outs; and tropical fish are colourfully printed across black silk mesh dresses.
