PARIS, France  Hip Croatia-born designer Damir Doma added some twists to his signature menswear silhouette of wide torsos and billowing pants for the spring-summer 2014 season.

Beginning with a series of sanitized white ensembles, a unique thick waist band recurred across the 30 looks at the show held in a Paris warehouse Saturday evening.

Sported either low on a jacket or at the top strip of high-waisted pants, the band cinched the midriff and produced a nice new silhouette.

There was some variation, too, in the colors.

Flashes of cobalt blue — or what the program notes call "Yves Klein" — worked well, especially on these high pants, in punctuating the intentionally monk-like palette of donkey brown and slate gray.

The blown up monochrome geometric patterns that looked a little like the Burberry motif worked less well, however.

But the show produced some great single pieces: Like a square shaped jacket with raglan sleeves that were subtly pleated to pump up the volume.
