David Koma Pre-Fall 2021

David Koma, like the rest of us, spent part of this fall bingeing The Crown on Netflix. Emma Corrin’s portrayal of Princess Diana couldn’t help but seep into his pre-fall collection—though luckily for those of us tired of hackneyed takes on pie-crust collars and sheep intarsia sweaters, Koma’s riff on Princess Di is less literal, more freeform. Taffeta, the material of so many of Di’s most splendiferous frocks, has ruched its way into Koma’s collection for the first time in the form of a white shirred mini with crystal rope detailing. As has the idea of equestrianism—we’ve all heard the rumors about Di at the stables before.

That sort of sexiness and suggestion suits the Koma woman, of course. The designer can cut a minidress within an inch of vulgarity from ingenious material pairings like aristocratic velvet and surfer scuba. Even at his most prim, he favors a cut out, crystal detail, or flash of neon, and so the many dresses in this collection come with those sorts of provocative twists. To those who might balk at luxurious, sensual clothing in the sweatpants era—well, Koma’s continued success proves that customers are yearning for a little flash. “I’m still dreaming of a better future,” he said over a video chat. An ostrich feather trimmed lingerie gown seems to guarantee that something fun is on the horizon.

New Balance 580 GORE-TEX

After unveiling the New Balance 580 GORE-TEX in the striking “Black Magnet” colorway, New Balance is introducing yet another iteration of the popular sneaker, this time in a refreshing “Kombu Green” hue.

Determined to provide options that withstand winter’s harshest conditions, the shoe is meticulously crafted using a combination of suede and mesh materials, integrating advanced waterproof GORE-TEX technology, Roll-Bar tech, and ABZORB cushioning for optimal functionality, comfort, and stability. Diverging from the darker tones of the “Black Magnet” version, the “Kombu Green” edition predominantly features an army green tone on the suede overlays and upper. Complementing this, the midsole is highlighted in grey, while the Vibram outsole receives sleek black accents.
