Delpozo Displayed Eccentric Architectural Tailoring at Spring 2017 Runway Show

Dubbed prêt-à-couture, Delpozo’s aesthetic is experiencing its most flourishing time thanks to creative director Josep Font, whose newest Delpozo spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear line-up perfectly expresses the Spanish Maison’s new style and fashion goals.

Unveiled at this inspiring New York Fashion Week a few hours ago, the Delpozo spring/summer 2017 collection infused the catwalk with Josep Font’s architectural lines and cuts, mixing purely conceptual motifs and patterns with jocose flamenco-inspired references. A former architecture student and a mosaic enthusiast, Josep Font kept on serving us staples whimsically filtered through his youthfully romantic lens, refining them with beautifully refined cuts and intricately embroidered patterns.

As usual, Font’s ready-to-wear range was filled with an astounding amount of different motifs and geometries, all dipped into the most diverse color palette we could ever think of. Aside from his signature bold colors, Josep Font also treated us to softer, eased-up hues this time around, the delicacy and sensuality of which inevitably make the brighter colors stand out even more.

Of course, checkered and floral patterns helped reinforce Font’s multidimensional approach to ready-to-wear as well, with radiating stars and studded embellishments completing the most eccentric ensembles.

Richly textured and dominated by cropped lines, the Delpozo spring/summer 2017 collection slowly evolves to denote power, at first introducing us to its softer, more casual pieces, just to turn into something more complex (if not entirely abstract) that recalls Spain’s most renowned surrealist painters.

Font’s geometry, which is to be seen both within the lines and designed patterns of the looks, effortlessly transports the collection to a more haute couture level, either dramatically cropping the lines or deconstructing the figures into something completely new.
The key to this buzz is the abounding amount of Font’s cropped jackets, oversized floor-length dresses and dramatic peplum cuts, enhanced either with strategic cut-outs or risqué plunging necklines and splits on the fronts.

Josep Font, whose knack for fabric manipulation should never be underestimated, also kept his prêt-à-couture philosophy alive by cheerfully playing with different materials, often fearlessly juxtaposing heavyweight-engineered textiles with lighter tulle and organza materials.

Poplin and cocoon dresses balance the most intricate proposals with something perfect for everyday, offering us new, more conceptual takes on casual dressing. On the other hand, butterfly-sleeved mini dresses adorned with matching butterfly embellishments create a sort of third possibility, trapping us between the more haute couture-esque ensembles and the casual ones. Such proposals also instill a new, hybrid sense of fashion into our minds, making us wonder whether Font is about to express his creative stream of consciousness with new styles or not.

Trapped into the power and signature familiar style, Josep Font managed, however, to introduce fresh ideas for his Delpozo spring/summer 2017 line-up that we already adore.
