NEW YORK — Delpozo is planning to add a Spanish touch to the New York collections next month.
For the first time, the Madrid-based ready-to-wear brand will be part of New York Fashion Week with its fall show at Chelsea’s Canoe Studios on Feb. 10.
The decision to bring the collection Stateside was based on a larger relaunch strategy by the Perfumes & Diseño Group, which bought the brand last year after the death of founding designer Jesús del Pozo in 2011. The new parent hopes to put the Spanish brand on the global fashion map and is setting its sights on several strategic markets, including Europe, the U.S., Russia, Dubai and Shanghai.
“Delpozo already does very well in the perfumes area in the U.S.,” said creative director Josep Font, who joined Delpozo last year and is spearheading the evolution of the brand, which was founded in 1974. “We felt that showing Delpozo for the first time in New York will make it more international. We think New York is the best place for a global reach.”
Delpozo prides itself on its reverence of Spanish tradition, craftsmanship and couturelike details, and fall marks the second season designed by Font. While Delpozo already has a small retail presence here for spring — it is sold at 25 Park on the Upper East Side and at e-tailers Moda Operandi and Net-a-porter — the show will serve as a more formal introduction of the brand. Delpozo executives are hoping to return to New York Fashion Week each season. “We are here, and can be as international as anybody else,” Font said. “This will help show the world there is quality and there is fashion from Spain.”
“These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering differently abled adults to express themselves through fashion,” said @tommyhilfiger of his line of adaptive apparel, which launches today. The line consists of 37 men’s and 34 women’s styles based upon the pieces from the spring Tommy Hilfiger sportswear collection. #wwdnews
“Stranger Things” is getting a new cast member for season 2. Meet @sadiesink_, the 15-year-old who will be joining the Netflix series for its new season. You may recognize her from “The Glass Castle” with Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson, but the Texas native’s next role goes in an entirely different direction.

Amid the Harvey Weinstein controversy, there’s another sector that’s being put under the spotlight for sexual abuse: the modeling industry. While rumors about abuse and sexual harassment of female and male models — and the photographers, agents and others who perpetrated it — have circulated within the fashion world for years, model @cameronrussell started posting stories from models on Instagram last week about abusive situations they’ve encountered — from sexual harassment and molestation to attempted rape. Over 75 have weighed in so far. Read more on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdnews
