Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC: Delpozo – Spring|Summer 2014

Just like with anything else in life, the path less trodden proves to be far more exciting than the one that has been stampeded by many; it’s the addicting thrill of discovering something or someone new. Fashion is not an exception. One of the most rewarding moments of attending Fashion Week is the unexpected designer, the surprising collection. And for this season in NYC, Delpozo was the one.

Something of note is the structure of the clothes- both traditional and contemporary, rustic and romantic. Seemingly as if channeling fellow Spanish grandmaster Cristóbal Balenciaga, Creative Director Josep Font designed with volume. The decorative insects and flowers are something ala Elsa Schiaparelli. The reference to fashion heritage is blatant. Not that it’s a copy- as said before, the wheel can’t be reinvented, only reinterpreted. And why not subliminally celebrate some of the industry’s greatest? Seeing the current state of fashion, Delpozo’s collection gives hope.

Although the painting Gypsy Woman With Tambourine by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was the inspiration, there are less touches of nomadic and many more of fancy. Certain pieces could be slightly harnessed in design, yes, but the collection showcases the designer’s potential, his artistic capacity and trained eye. It promises many great pieces to come and someone to keep under watch. | Giuseppe

  1. Indeed the most pleasant surprise of the week. Don’t you find some hint of Couture nostalgia? A collection with a construction almost architectural that grows in a crescendo to peak with the most exquisite embroideries.
