Delpozo RTW Spring 2015: Josep Font’s reverie-inducing creations are fashion at its most fantastical. Each of his imaginative collections for Delpozo is a meticulously composed exploration of sculptural shapes and couture-like fabrications. This season, the Madrid-based designer made brave new proposals about color, specifically referencing Josef Albers’ artwork as an inspiration. Font opened his Spring show by reinterpreting sportswear staples in extreme proportions, pairing structured jackets and crisp shirting with ultra-wide-legged culottes or trousers. A particular standout was a strapless, color-blocked frock with voluminous structured pleats, which was layered over a short-sleeved button-up. Creative Director Josep Font played with volume, proportion and illusion at Delpozo’s superb spring outing.
He began with exaggerated sportswear silhouettes: the widest of red culottes paired with a white wrapped bandeau, and the fullest of skirts, beautifully done in a white, navy and green midi strapless dress with a white shirt underneath. He then shifted gears into more sculptural pieces inspired by the land art of Nils-Udo, including a yellow top with an exaggerated peplum and a sculpted flower on the bodice, and a miniskirt with origami-like panels.
From there, Font moved into a series of intricate looks that highlighted his innovative approach toward materials and craftsmanship. Shiny, crackled vinyl spots contrasted beautifully with delicate chiffon on several pieces, densely crocheted crop tops and dresses had three-dimensional appeal, and an intricate jungle-patterned jacquard peppered with monkeys added a touch of wit to the mix. The lineup ended on a dramatically feminine note with a trio of embroidered tulle bobbinet numbers (influenced by artists Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka) that floated like clouds over the bod—they were the stuff that dreams are made of.
