I am a huge fan of his work. I styled a couple of shoots using some of his designs.
So yes, I really wanted to visit his showroom.
Did I have an invite? No.
Do I surround myself with the right people? Yes.
Turned out that my sweet friend and Ü-editor Coco Pastis knew him from way back.
Something to do with Antwerp, a lost cat, a search party and lots of lols.
So at the start of day 2 (this was evening 1), she got to work.
Now I have to tell you, this little care bear works in mysterious ways. Some of which you shouldn't try at home. She sends emails with weird cutsie subjects. That automatically get forwarded to PR people, showroom supervisors and back again.
But... cue 2 hours later and we were in.
As soon as we arrived, the lovely PR consultant gave us a tour while texting Damir who after a couple of minutes magically appeared and immediately offered to sit down with us.
Yes, Coco brought him a little bouquet she picked up at the metro station. This girl, really. If you don't like her: we've got a problem.
I fell hard for these boots. And if the beautiful people at RA are willing to stock them, then I am willing to buy them.
You have to check the Damir Doma S/S 12 video! So gorge.
