New York fashion week occasionally puts up certain gems, and Spanish label Delpozo is easily one such precious show. There's a fantastic element to Delpozo's Spring 2014 collection, with designer Josep Font putting up several whimsical fairy-tale pieces that would make any couture house proud. The forms are old-school Balenciaga huge, details are well-thought out and never over-bearing, and colors and textures are soft and feminine. There are still a few princesses left in this world, and this collection would be perfect for them and their celebrity friends on the red carpet.
The following press notes provide more information about this excellent collection;
Inspired by the portrait “Gypsy woman with tambourine” by Corot, Josep Font takes nature as a reference to create the next DELPOZO project.
Light is incorporated as just another element, to create optical and geometric effects. Refined lines are separated from the body and create defined shapes with elaborate structures. Accentuated or discreet volumes mark and lengthen the waist in silhouettes, flared or straight lines.
The raffia skirts, a key part of the collection, reach the ankle and combine with clover tops and poplin, heart-shaped shirts. Sleeves leave the shoulders intermittently uncovered to become bias-cut frills or wide, black straps.
During the day, linen and raffia construct shorts and jackets in ecru, black, sand and mustard. As night falls, the fabrics become lighter while the colors gain in intensity with prints, lilacs and pinks in jacquard, organza and silk tulle.
DELPOZO once again proposes a studied balance of traditional elements with innovative cuts which transmit simplicity and shape the brand’s personal character.
