Runway Report: Delpozo SS16

There’s always something magical in the air before a Delpozo runway show and this year was no exception. Walking into what appeared to be a very chic wedding tent, complete with strung up lights and a string quartet, a hush fell over all of us as the first model stepped out and the music began.

This season, Josep Font infused two muses from Gypsy Ballads to reimagine the modern woman; the fiery and fearless subjects of Spanish poet, Federico Garcia Lorca’s dreams and Gustav Klimt’s young and romantic lover. The silhouette was relaxed and organic thanks to a touch of bohemian inspiration from Floge but the intense origami construction of fabrics like chiffon, linen and lurex organza along with the pristine craftsmanship we’ve come to know and love from Josep allowed it to remain entirely Delpozo no matter which way you looked at it.

The colors throughout the collection were fun and vibrant yet perfectly restrained when combined thus creating a whirling fantasy of pieces that could never be ignored. There were shimmering gold jacquards on ballgown skirts and a fringe trimmed shawl-blouse and voluminous tiers of ruffles and tulle found in sherbet pinks and greens with clear ocean blues accented by primary’s like black, white and navy. Of course there was plenty of texture to go around too. Swirls of sequins, bugle floral shaped beading, holographic embellishments and even hand crocheted raffia found themselves either delicately placed along hemlines and seams or taking over entire ensembles.
