Josep Font Fuses Architecture And Fashion In Delpozo RTW Fall 2018 Collection At London Fashion Week 2018

 

Delpozo has a long history of sophisticated airs and graces and currently exists in a self-appointed category of its own known as prêt-à-couture. Josep Font, the creative director, who showcased his collection in London for the first time instead of New York certainly didn’t let go of his colourful and dreamy aesthetic.

Josep Font staged the show at the Royal Institute of British Architects and said he wanted to fuse nature and art inside the grand Art Deco building on Portland Place. As a former architect, Font likes to experiment with the shape and line of his designs and never fails to pluck an unlikely artistic reference for his collections. For this season it was the portraits of French artist Inès Longevial that sparked his imagination.

The collection featured elegant and sculptural 3D leather belts done in lily-pad shapes which cinched the waist of the models while big faux-fur flowers sat on the collars of coats, or covered small clutch bags. The belts were inspired by unpublished National Geographic imagery from the 1930s of lily and lotus petals. Some of theBlazerss appeared to have a split personality, cut for a traditional nine-to-five wardrobe on one side and trailing off with cocktail-hour draping on the other.

A look at the collection below…
