Delpozo - #NYFW Spring 2017

 "Creative Director, Josep Font's exquisite, pret-a-couture design exist outside the bounds of usual clothing constructions. They swell, curve, arc, dive, and something even jut. They recall a bit of his countryman Cristóbal Balenciaga, and are unafraid to take up space. Their construction is so lovely and singular as to be mightily hard to do justice to. The perennially art-referencing designer took his inspiration from the Spanish Impressionist Joaquín Sorolla and contemporary artist Soo Sunny Park. The former lent Font the exquisite deep periwinkle of his opening looks ("Sorolla Blue"), while the latter set his thinking about handcraft and luminosity, exemplified by her undulating, mirrored installations. Font appears to dream in more than three dimensions. Among the confections he proposed this season: a story in lush, metallic floral jacquard, trousers impeccably nipped at the waist and full through the hip and thigh, and a series of cobwebby crocheted open knits - striking in their contrast to everything you might typically associate with Font, and utterly lovely. The resulting lineup was a bit Old World, yet undeniably modern; even the designer's most otherworldly proportions felt featherweight. Font's Delpozo continues to be a singular force in the fashion landscape." -
