Delpozo's creative director Josep Font continues to work his magic with the house's first ever Resort collection. Taking much of his inspiration from sculptor Anthony Caro, Font sought to "touch with the eyes" and we would say that he was successful in this endeavour as there is much to take in and everything is delightful.
With the trademark mix of bright colours, volume and embellishment, the collection reflected a more wearable version of their clothes, raging from relatively casual to more formal pieces, but managed to maintain the Delpozo aesthetic without straying too far off the mark. Sculptural whorls, organic embellishments and petal-like forms adorned bodices and skirts. Inspiration was also taken from French director and illusionist Georges Méliès whose love of the sky and the sea were evident in the amazing star prints and raffia fish embroideries. Showstoppers included an ankle-length brocade coat with raffia motifs and dresses and skirts with sheer organdie overlays. The clothes were paired with ladylike purses in complimentary hues or woven purses and platform slides decorated with raffia embellishments.
