Delpozo spring 2107 NYFW



While so many designers are busy espousing their so called “modern fashion” design philosophies, which usually have nothing to do with the clothes, Josep Font delivers one of the most modern and breathtaking spectacles of fashion and with no necessary  or supposedly thought provoking high minded inspirations verbalized or written.

What makes it all the more amazing is that so much of what Delpozo stands for is “hard tailoring and edges” and yet these clothes appear to be feather weight with the softness of chiffon  despite their volumes... making sense? The fabrications, the colorations, the details and the silhouettes all work to the end result of truly modern impeccably DESIGNED and well thought out clothes that have a point of view and adhere to the brand’s signature. These people (Delpozo) are not shopping for   a new client base each season; they do what they do and they stick to it much in the vein of how Thom Browne sets forth his signatures each season.

Now, don’t think for  a minute that I believe these are easy clothes to wear or sell but they MUST be evaluated on so much more than just selling… now I have gone against almost every review I  have ever written but this is a stand-alone collection that has no peer ... certainly not in terms of American fashion. I can see influence from the namesake designer as well as Balenciaga, Capucci and even Stephane Rolland but it is all good.... none of that matters in the least. It is just what registers in my head when I see this.

It is a divine moment when designers actually design and evolve and get better and better with each season...  K U D O S!!!!!
