Delpozo Was the Fucking Bomb

Delpozo, a Madrid-based brand helmed by Josep Font, put out an incredible Spring 2017 collection on Wednesday at NYFW and I am DROOLING, everybody!!!!

Delpozo is known for putting out architectural, sometimes overly cerebral looks, but this collection is something else entirely, hitting such a beautiful, perfect balance between delicacy and sturdiness, sharp lines and goddess-y shapes. My favorite might be the coral showstopper on the far right, which glimmered softly as she walked down the runway.

I loved this focus on rounded, oversized structure, and the kitten heels are so weird and dreamy. I mean, here is everything I like in clothing that I could never afford, in a nutshell—impeccable craftsmanship, diaphanous textures, pastels, brights, over-the-top accessories...

This was very good.

So, I ask this in genuine curiosity and not in an attempt to be dismissive; what appeals people to clothing and dresses like this? To me fashion shows like this read not as having anything to do with clothing or the human form, but mainly as just art shows (with strong performance art elements). I guess I struggle with “high fashion” as being anything other than essentially avant grade sculpture in cloth and other material. Is there any connection to what the average person might call fashion? That is, what is the link between this kind of semi-abstract performance and the actual commercial world of fashion?

I admit to being totally out of my depth.
