Delpozo Pre-Fall 2016: Day-friendly pieces

Until now daytime styles have been an unfamiliar concept for Delpozo, a brand known for its couture-esque creations. Yet, growing consumer demand for more day-friendly pieces sees both Pre-Fall and Resort collections now marked firmly in the houses’ diary.

NEW YORK:  For this, his first Pre-Fall outing, Josep Font harmonised the brands decadent aesthetic with approachable silhouettes, taking inspiration from the vibrant structures of Mexican architect, Luis Barragán and the photographs of Japanese artist, Nobuyoshi Araki.

Araki’s botanical studies were referenced throughout the line-up; wild floral prints grew in saturated tones across voluminous shapes, while more delicate motifs were offered in paper-light floral brooches, adorning the collars of classic white shirts, coats and shift dresses.

Cable-knit sweaters received a douse of Font’s frivolities too, layered with heaps of fringe in vibrant colour blocks and oversized proportions. Elsewhere, the designer approached eveningwear with a modernist edge, lending structure to shift shapes with layers of tulle at the hip or flutes of dramatic volume below the knee and waist.
