Delpozo A/W 2017

Josep Font looks to Hungarian modernism for his fifth anniversary at the Spanish house

Mood board: An avid art enthusiast, Josep Font — who celebrates his fifth anniversary with the brand this season — looked to the ‘serenity and continuity’ of Hungarian artist József Rippl-Rónai’s paintings, as well as the work of the post-impressionist Les Nabis movement he belonged to, which inspired the moodier colour palette. Max Bill, a sculptor and architect, who often worked in concrete, was also an inspiration.

Best in show: Font originally trained as an architect, and this background was reflected in a two piece created from a vivid yellow structural off the shoulder top embellished with sequins, paired with a long purple chiffon skirt. An oxblood coat with cocooning arms also evoked the curved folds of Bill’s sculptures.

Finishing touches: The collection looked a little more avant garde than Delpozo’s past collections, because of the scuba-hooded shirts that were layered beneath several looks, lending a sci-fi meets swimming gala edge to their styling. Floral embellishments, a signature mark of the fashion house, appeared throughout, like in the final look, a gown created from an embroidered floral mini dress, layered beneath a sheer oxblood skirt.
