Overlooking the Hudson River, the Spanish label imbues its voluminous and well-tailored creations with a fanciful touch

Inspired by Federico García Lorca's "Gypsy Ballads" and Gustav Klimt's bohemian lover and muse, Emilie Flöge, creative director Josep Font merged these two influences with the whimsical flair of the atelier to take us on a couture-like dream.

With a background in architecture, there was no surprise that Font continued to display his talents through the quirky play on proportion, shape and volume, what has become a signature style of the brand. Following this, Font brought Spanish traditional craftsmanship to the collection with an ardent attention to detail, evident through the three-dimensional floral appliques, delicate metallic fringe, hand-crocheted raffia flowers and ruffles of various sizes.

Debuting at the SS16 show was Delpozo's first-ever line of bags, a fresh take on doctor bags with vibrant hues of canary-yellow, aqua and camel, as well as metallic florals. Complementing this and the beadwork throughout the collection were the embellished footwear, which with bugle-beads spilling out from the platform shoes, did not fall short of detail.
