Swimming Pool Inspiration

| February 24, 2018

Would you consider this collection for poolside lounging?

For his Spring Summer 2018, Delpozo’s creative director, Josep Font, turns
to the senses from inspiration of self-taught Slovakian photographer Maria
Svarbova’s “Swimming pools” series, alongside the crisp music of bon vivant
composer Xavier Cugat.

Delpozo’s Spring Summer 2018 Musicalia collection further describes the series:

While listening to the Spanish Cugat, Font was transported to the historic
graceful soirées at the Waldorf Astoria and lazy summer afternoons by the
pool, giving the collection a refreshing musical flow. A wide range of circular
silhouettes with curved seams in skirts and tops; dresses, sculpted at the waist;
ruffles cascading with their own delicate rhythm; pleats and flounces in bow
and petal shapes as if the wind has blown over and had them land, carefully, on
necklines and shoulders; and the Muguet sleeve, voluminous yet weightless.

The swimming pools evoked in Svarbova’s photography, caught Font’s eye for
their pure color proportion and Art Nouveau elements.
