Delpozo blended the visual artistry of Australian Rhys Lee with the modern spirit of Russian painter Andrey Remnev for its fall/winter 2015 collection. Set in the bright space of the IAC building, the runway lined by bone-white tree trunks with stunted branches, the show was all about rich colors, handcrafted detailing, and sumptuous materials.
This season’s silhouette was seemingly simple in structure. Straight and vertically emphasized, columns were accentuated with shoulder pads, balloon sleeves, and peplum cuts. Geometric, grid-like panels of fabric were arranged for easy movement.
Rich fabrics like mouflon, crepe, and wool voile played an important part, but velvet in particular was the star. Appearing in three different iterations—technical, comfortable, and flexible—the devoré velvet, made from a silk base, was used as the transition from day- to evening-wear.
Hand-made fabric flowers blossomed across dresses and blouses, while sophisticated knitwear took on a blend of mohair, merino wool, and alpaca with silk. Metallic appliqués added brightness and angular patterns to the black and beige bases. Rich emeralds, vibrant baby blues, bright reds, and pops of yellow accented sleek shades of taupe, charcoal grey, chocolate brown, and black.
Romantic, modern, and whimsical, Delpozo’s fall/winter 2015 collection is a delightful explosion of visual stimulation that proved fashion can be fun, but still smart.
