The relationship between designers and the stores that carry them is everything. In many ways stores are able to mythologize designers in a way they can’t do on their own. Just look at Browns and Comme des Garçons in the early ’90s.
With that truth well-established, the London concept shop LN-CC will hold an archive sale for men’s designer Damir Doma, he of avant-menswear for discerning urban nomads. Spanning the young Croatian-German’s six(ish)-year career, the curated sale consists of 50 key pieces, mostly on the experimental, editorial side. These include his signature tie-dye pieces and all manner of deconstruction.
“The LN-CC buying team has been following and working with Damir Doma as a brand from inception,” says LN-CC’s creative director John Skelton, who equates the designer with early Raf Simons. “Some six 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 most iconic pieces Damir has produced to date.”
