What happens when an architect turns fashion designer? DELPOZO. Josep Font, once architect, now creative director of Madrid-based fashion label DELPOZO, unveiled the brand’s latest collection, FW 2015 Ready to Wear, chock-full of abstract patchwork, balloon sleeves and radical hair bows.
DELPOZO embraces time-honored couture techniques with a modern sensibility to create unique and feminine pieces for the contemporary woman. A combination of contrasting elements defines the prêt-à-couture house: DELPOZO is traditional and modern, organic and architectural, sumptuous and pure. The hallmarks of the DELPOZO atelier include a creative approach to volume, color, and silhouette. Artisan techniques and intricate embroideries are used throughout the collections to create the ethereal and timeless DELPOZO aesthetic.
One might expect more rigidness from a fashion designer with an architectural background, but Font was surprisingly able to juxtapose structure with softness. Billowing sleeves, A-frame skirts and curvilinear tailoring create a dynamic yet smooth collection.
