A boxy V-neck jacket and a pair of leather harem pants; a white shalwar kameez with a strip narrow strip of black fabric down the front, like a sort of minimalist tie.

Put the two together and you have a business suit, according to Damir Doma, whose dark, tribal and almost Medieval vision of fashion has catapulted him into the spotlight.

For fall-winter 2011-2012 menswear, Doma fielded drop-crotched pants in nubby wool and washed silk that were as close to a skirt as a pair of trousers can be. Bulky ribbed sweaters that loosely swathed the models' bodies Saturday and starched white shirts with dangling flaps in the front completed the look.

Not for everybody, but then again, who needs more classic two-button blazers and wearable business slacks?
