For Delpozo’s first resort lineup, creative director Josep Font looked to the pioneering French cinematographer George Méliès, translating the fantastical worlds of his silent films into a dreamy, whimsical collection that featured celestial and oceanic themes, woven throughout his looks via elaborate embroideries and prints.
Done in a rainbow of soft and vivid hues, the elegant dresses, skirts and blouses were decorated with gorgeous embellishments that begged to be seen up close. Daywear offerings in crisp cotton poplin, linen and raffia jacquard featured starburst prints and star-shaped sequins, an homage to Méliès’ “A Trip to the Moon.” One standout coat, a voluminous, kimono-sleeve raffia number, was covered in colorful fabric appliqués, sequins and beads artfully arranged into playful flowers and fish. A delicate femininity ran throughout the evening looks, which were notable for their color contrasts: A prim, pale-pink tulle sleeveless gown featured a baby-blue collar, while a lavender tulle skirt was worn with a structured lime cropped top with an oversize bow. But then, every piece in the collection made a statement, with their clean, architectural silhouettes inspired by British sculptor Anthony Caro — another Font influence.
