Runway Report: Delpozo AW18

Josep Font found himself on the other side of the pond this season, leaving Pier 59 in NYC and showcasing his collection in London for the very first time. At this point in our show-going career’s, there’s a certain aesthetic that comes with each city and as the finale runway drifted by each of us – with it’s precise construction and bold colors – one thing was certain, Font has found himself  a very appropriate new home.

Coming across an unpublished National Geographic picture from the 1930s, where water lilies and lotus flowers turn into the organic inspiration of
the season; Font also discovered French artist Inès Longevial. Her portraits radiate a harmonious femininity in shape and color. Simple lines and curvy silhouettes with luminous hues. While water lilies were translated into hand-made embroideries of matte sequin flowers.

One thing was certain, Fall 2018, (in its entirety) is unmistakably the most wearable collection from Font to date. Naturally, organic and abstract shapes appeared amongst the collecting (in beautiful floral pins and leather petal shaped belts) along with out-of-this-world embellished patterns but all of them appeared on silhouettes that could be worn anywhere. There were perfectly tailored cuffed and pleated trousers in an array of colors, beautiful intarsia sweaters, large houndstooth citron knitted capes, pleated and beaded gowns and a variety of textured outerwear which meant you could break up the pieces to work for everything from a business meeting to a red carpet affair.
