When a 14-year-old with killer style; Kiernan Shipka becomes a brand ambassador for a relaunched historic Spanish brand your head turn. The brand of discussion is Delpozo. Think architectural pleating. Quite mesmerising work by desogner Josep Font. Born in Mogoda, Spain the 45-year-old studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of California and fashion and pattern design at FD Moda in Barcelona.
Guillaume Henry who was appointed to recreated French brand Carven is similar to Josep who is designing for a 39-year-old brand. It was founded by a man Jésus del Pozo.
Josep was inspired by Gypsy women for his 40-piece Spring collection which debuted at New York Fashion Week at the start of September at the start of fashion month. Sharp tailoring was used and perfected to a T. Embroidered tops also done with accuracy.
My favourite look was 34 (Kiernan Shipka wore it to the Emmy's last week). The cap sleeved ankle length dress with a floral printed top and a floral embroidered full skirt, styled with gold heels.
Josep Font has a bright future ahead at Delpozo. The Spanish-man is oh so clearly wondrous when it comes to precision tailoring and architectural pleating. Some designers leave me drooling for more. I will not rest 'til Fall 2014.
