For Fall/Winter 2016 opposites attract; the emotional and the rational, Victorian and futurist, the romantic and the dark.
Geometry and cool steel make up part of this upcoming collection through Fritz Lang’s 1927 German Expressionist sci-fi movie masterpiece Metropolis. Delpozo’s creative director Josep Font goes one step further with texture using holographic mesh, metallic embroidery, thermo-fixed tulle and velvet jacquard prints which even include a silver craquelé effect.
The digital illustrations of Daria Petrilli, in whose contemporary work nature’s power is both serene yet unsettling, run through the collection. Silhouettes contrast between the geometry of Lang’s Metropolis and Petrilli’s gentle strength.
A sophisticated palette both muted yet intense creates the impression of a blooming kaleidoscopic of flowers in lilac, burgundy, bronze, gold and silver.
Handbags introduced last spring – the ‘Benedetta’ doctor bag, ‘Bo’ satchel, ‘Tyng’ flap bag and ‘Gret’ clutch – take their names from four seminal female architects, resonating with Josep Font’s original architectural training.
Overall, the Delpozo Fall/Winter 2016 is forged from opposite forces; darkness and light, logic and passion, the head and the heart.
