I have long been a fan of Madrid-based Delpozo, but this season they have outdone themselves. Josep Font worked off Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s “Gypsy woman with tambourine” portrait. Josep’s muses hold themselves with a certain elegance, an air of je ne sais quoi, while wearing some of the most perfectly crafted clothes I have ever seen. The seamless corsets that support airy, weightless-looking feminine tops blend perfectly into incredible volumed skirts, the Baleciaga-esque silhouettes, were undeniably feminine yet thoroughly modern.
While the clothes at times change the silhouette of a woman’s body, they also celebrate our lines and curves in a way we haven’t seen so often in recent times. I love how the high-waisted pants emphasize the small of a woman’s back, or how one can revel in their décolletage with an off-the-shoulder top. He proposes a studied balance of traditional elements with innovative cuts which transmit simplicity and shape the brand’s personal character. Also, anybody getting married in Spring 2014 – that last dress is perfect!!
