On Monday, Spanish prêt-à-couture atelier Delpozo announced Lutz Huelle as the new creative director of the NYC-based brand. Huelle replaces Josep Font after six years in the role.
Lutz Huelle describes himself as a pure product of Europe. He was born in Germany and educated in London at the prestigious Central Saint Martins. He received his first job with Maison Margiela, a Belgian designer based in Paris, before starting his own French based line which he develops in Italy.
Huelle credits the many experiences he’s had living and working in different European countries to the designer he is today.
On his new appointment to creative director of Delpozo the designer shares,
I have always loved Delpozo for its unique point of view, its timeless approach to fashion and its craftsmanship. To be able to work on this beautiful collection and be a part of this new chapter of Delpozo fills me with excitement joy.
Having taken this opportunity to work on Delpozo, a slow fashion brand known for its high-quality materials and timeless designs, Huelle can potentially broaden his reach to the United States.
For the New York fashion industry we expect he can adhere to the codes that have become synonymous with what Delpozo stands for, whilst broadening the day wear aspect of the house to create a complete wardrobe.
Traditionally Delpozo shows during New York Fashion Week. But for their Spring 2019 runway show former creative director Josep Font presented in London at The Royal Institute of British Architecture, as a tribute to his architectural studies. No news as to whether this change is permanent.
Lutz Huelle is scheduled to show his first collection for the Delpozo Spring 2020 collection next September.
