Dear Mode readers, it is my sincere privilege to introduce you to one of my new favorite designers. I present… Delpozo. In 2012, Josep Font took over the 42-year-old Spanish fashion house to revamp the brand and has been churning out dreamy, voluminous creations ever since. His training in architecture is apparent in the over-exaggerated pleats, wide sleeves, and three-dimensional colorblocking of the label’s first resort collection.

Stars and stripes dance across structured separates. Font uses pattern and texture to emphasize shape, yet still maintains a minimalist aesthetic with clean, defined silhouettes. I’m crazy about the sequin stars that add a hint of sparkle to pointed collars, bags, and skirts. There’s a restrained whimsicality to Font’s designs, a quirkiness that is channeled into something eccentric and effortless. Follow the jump to fall in love with my favorite looks from the Resort 2017 collection and to read about Font’s designs, background, and inspiration in his own words.

“With my background in architecture, I gained insight into proportion, shape, and volume which I apply continuously throughout my designs in every collection. I have the idea of a whole, and even though each piece has to be proportioned on its own, the full collection has to be balanced.”

“I don’t have a specific muse. I look more towards nature, art, and architecture. I can be inspired by an exhibition I visited, a ballet opera, or anything that sparks my interest.”

—JOSEP FONT ON HIS INSPIRATIONS—
