Delpozo: Intricate, Sculptural Design.

The presentation of the Delpozo pre-fall 2016 collection marked it’s debut for the Spanish house which has added both pre-fall and resort to its lineup. This season creative director Josep Font streamlined the brand to focus on his noted ability for intricate and sculptural patterns, for kaleidoscopic beading and fanciful touches. And for pre-fall, that confectionery precision translated into lovely day-wear.
