For the past two seasons, we’ve been besotted with Delpozo. It’s the closest thing to couture we get here in New York. So you can imagine our anticipation was high this week, waiting to see what Josep Font had up his sleeve for his fall. Taking inspiration from the geometric, colorful work of Italian artist Duilio Barnabe and the futuristic society of the novel Logan’s Run, he presented a collection rich with textures and shapes. Sculpted coats, pleated gowns, mohair sweaters, and collared organza dresses stood apart with precise tailoring, unique silhouettes, and intricate beading and embroidery. Simply magical, as usual.
