Runway Report: Delpozo SS17

We can safely assume that the phrase “I dream in color” was coined for Josep Font, Delpozo’s creative director. The designer sends down a rainbow-festooned collection every season with 3D shapes, bold silhouettes, and artsy applique that is poistively museum-worthy.

Much like his previous season’s, Font’s SS17 range was nothing short of wearable works-of-art. Drawing inspiration from the Spanish Impressionist Joaquín Sorolla and contemporary artist Soo Sunny Park, Font presented a melange of architectural styles hugging the models in all the right places.

The show opened with a pair of ripened lemon colored brocade ankle grazing pants with indigo and almond floral print, paired with a 3D white sleeveless shirt boasting large stiff paneling. The intricate embellishments didn’t stop there; the crowd stirred as the models sported over-sized dangling floral earrings which dusted the shoulders of each girl trotting down the catwalk in matching applique pointed flats.

Delpozo’s designs make every woman feel like fashion is art, and therefore every human is a canvas for creativity and fun. Forecasting pastels like cornflower blue and baby lemon mixed with bright hues a la watermelon pink and emerald for next season, it seems as though the wider you go with your silhouette, the better. As for your accessories, go long or go home!
