David Koma Dresses Mrs. Carter
Beyoncé′s Mrs. Carter Show tour kicked off in Belgrade this week, and in addition to Pucci’s Peter Dundas, Dsquared²’s Dean and Dan Caten, and Alon Livne, Bey favorite David Koma created some saucy, custom onstage ensembles for the star and her backup dancers. “We looked at musical instruments as art objects, and the print is a French horn,” said the designer during a chat at the London Showrooms yesterday. The costumes, which were influenced by Koma’s vinyl-record-inspired Fall 2013 collection, feature gold and black printed silk jersey bodices and slick, laser-cut patent leather peplums. “She usually goes for something body conscious and different,” said Koma, who’s worked with the singer since 2009. “And she likes to look strong and sensual at the same time. I mean, come on, she’s Beyoncé!” Take a peek at Koma’s sketches (above) and inspiration board (below), exclusively on Style.com.
