Designer Spotlight: Danish Plus-Size Line “Carmakoma”


I first noticed the plus-size line from Denmark called “Carmakoma” late last year but was a little taken back by the fact that the clothing had an “all black” theme to it. I for one like to see curvy women in various colors. But designer Heidie Lykke just sent me over some pics of the new pieces and as I look at the new Fall/Winter 2010 collection, I see some great new styles and some colors have been added. The theme of the collection is called “Carpe Diem” which means “seize the day”.  Even though most of the clothes are still all black, there is some purple, mauve and grey mixed in as well. I especially like the more contoured and detailed accents added to the clothing. I have my eyes on the “Roberto 2 Pant”. Nothing beats a sexy pair of legging/pants with an edgy look to them. If you’re searching for that “little black dress” then this line has plenty to choose from in great styles. I’m really digging the “Temple” poncho for those nice Fall days where you really don’t need a full coat. Here are the preview pictures:
