Runway: Delpozo Spring 2016 RTW, New York
Thursday 17th September, 2015
IT IS EASY TO IMAGINE A FAIRYTALE written simply from Josep Font’s collections at Delpozo, that’s how much creativity and imagination they entail. The collection could easily be confused for couture, for the drapery and intricate embellishments and appliqués are just short of a dream. This season, clothes embody the women from Federico García Lorca’s Gypsy Ballads and Gustav Klimt’s muse, Emilie Flöge, with an underlying bohemian spirit — craftsmanship and folklore inextricably intertwined. There were hand crocheted raffia vests, larger-than-life volumes and silhouettes, and sparkle, so much sparkle. —Victoria

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
