LN-CC presents a Damir Doma archive sale spanning the designer’s entire career, starting with his second collection all the way to AW12.
The archive consists of 50 key, mostly runway and editorial pieces, including a striped grey cardigan with belt detail from SS09 – undeniably, a pioneering example of Damir’s earlier work. Other notable pieces are a selection of grey and blue tie-die, which form part of one of his earliest shows and earned a special place during his entrance to the world. Damir Doma as a designer is a purist and, as a person, a real gentleman. There is no question that Damir has made a huge impression on men’s wear with his earlier shows, having a supreme air and atmosphere about them that wasn’t seen since Raf Simons shows of the early 2000’s. The product he has been turning out is creative, consistent and visionary. A master of design and, although maybe not to everyone’s taste, nobody can argue that he has, in a world that is very stale and flat, created his own aesthetic and brought a fresh take to men’s wear introducing a brand to the world that was not there before.
We realised from an early point of Doma’s career that his collections were undoubtedly going to be a key brand in the fashion landscape for years to come. His strong designs and unique colourways subsequently made us ensue his debut work with conviction.

His strong designs and unique colourways subsequently made us ensue his debut work with conviction. Some 6 years later we are seeing some of the most progressive presentations, product and styling across a broad range of current menswear offerings. These bold demonstrations make this a good time to reflect on some of the highlights through a comprehensive archive of what we consider to be some of the most iconic pieces Damir has produced to date.”
