At one time or another there has always been the discussion as to whether or not fashion is art. Today, we might be able to put the topic to rest with Delpozo for Spring|Summer 2015. This reviewer has always cast a wary eye on his collections, but now is convinced that Mr. Josep Font shows the industry that he does take fashion to a new level and turns it into art. After viewing his latest collection, my mind wandered off to Capucci, Rucci and even Cardin at his height. Construction, fantasy, technical prowess and imagination are key factors.
Delpozo utilizes its flawless abilities to render a collection that looks as if it has been made by super human hands; the execution is practically without equal and the premise of the collection challenges conventional fashion intelligence. The proportions, volumes, workmanship- they all offer the viewer a rare opportunity to see what happens when only the best is applied to the simple business of selling clothes. As this collection continues, the ‘wearable’ factor increases while never abandoning the DNA of the brand.
Don’t get me wrong, this is not a collection that has universal appeal, but the most seasoned minds of fashion must admit that Delpozo gives you food for thought and the chance to see fashion in a new perspective! | Jeffrey Felner
