As usual, I am continuing to track the success of Spanish brands at the New York Fashion Week, the most coveted fashion venue in the world. To see earlier posts about the New York Fashion Week, click here, here, and here.
The fashion house Delpozo presented its Spring-Summer 2016 collection on September 16. It was the brand’s sixth showing in New York and a great success. At the beginning Delpozo had to fight for the spot – not anymore. The Who-Is-Who of the fashion world know all about it. Celebrities are signing up in a hurry. Regular people, like me, sigh adoringly from the sidelines.
Delpozo is definitely enchanting. It uses a lot of delicate, airy fabrics and breathtaking embroidery. While producing everything in Spain, they now have hired craftspeople from the famous Maison Lesage embroidery atelier, owned by Chanel. It is more than a coincidence – I think that of all legendary fashion brands Delpozo is closest to Chanel. Luxurious and exclusive, yet it looks and feels as natural as a breath of air or a drink of water.
Custo Barcelona showed its SS16 collection on September 11th. Custo‘s prints always have a great visual rhythm. This collection was no exception. The ethnic element is strong, but treated in a very sophisticated way. Beautiful lacy, knitted, and transparent textures abounded. I really liked the colorful laces and beautiful satin texture of the pumps. All photos courtesy of Custo.
