DELPOZO’s creative director Josep Font celebrated his five year anniversary at the helm of the prêt-à-couture brand with fall winter 2017.18 collection presented during the New York Fashion Week. Inspired by serenity and continuity, Font extracted the color palette from the work of Les Nabis, a group of Post-Impressionist avant-garde artists in 1890s France, while the silhouettes are homage to Swiss architect and sculptor Max Bill.
Like Fauvism, where emotion is expressed through color; the Nabis focused on the translation of reality rather than the tangible, and inspires this collections’ calmer and darker color hues: midnight black, dark burgundy, deep blue, chestnut, and dark green. The spirituality of the color palette, boosted with Klein blue, ivory and amber, is fused with the organic silhouettes taken from Max Bill’s abstract sculptures. Circular volumes become the highlight of this season: bold yet soft pleats and sleeves curve around the Delpozo woman’s body in flannel wool, embossed jacquard and silk lamé; round gold buckles shine on trousers, tops, jackets, and ankle boots; and the tulip silhouette wraps around shoulders, skirts and cocktail dresses. It is synthesizing at its finest. – from Delopozo
