DELPOZO: In the Details

Being that the DELPOZO show images were among the most popular from all of my NYFW coverage (and I got such an intimate look at what it took to produce their show), I wanted to dig deeper into the collection, see these exquisite details and discover more behind the brand’s creative director Josep Font’s inspiration.

The saying “the devil’s in the details” may not hold true anymore…what is there now is Font. “At the end of the day, it’s the base and the foundation of this company,” he said. “Everything is high-quality, done by hand…not anything that’s cheap looking or thrown together. It’s all very thought out and strategic.”

It is easy to understand that when you consider Font’s background. Here is a man who went to school for architecture before going into fashion design, and despite his claims that it does not come into his work, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone who can’t see his former studies in his current collection. The flowing, billowing skirts of this collection, inspired by the Corot painting Gypsy Woman with a Tambourine, have an inner structure that took three times as long to make as their decorated outer shells. His other source of inspiration, the stained glass windows of Gothic cathedrals, also call to mind both structure and precise attention to detail. Though the sources of inspiration are quite different, they come together to make a stunning spring collection of bright colors, intricate details, and classic feminine shapes.

It comes as no surprise to us that Font is inspired by such beautiful art. With every piece pored over by hand, structured inside and out, they truly have become artistic masterpieces themselves.

  

ps- Delpozo’s SS14 collection is available on Moda Operandi for pre-order!
