Fashion is often arch, knowing and cynical. This results in edgey collections with complex, multi layered meaning and references. This is all fine and good, but sometimes it’s pleasant to take a break and enjoy fashion that’s simply beautiful. Joseph Font’s SS16 offering for Delpozo was dripping in old school haute couture values, with a generous splash of fairy-tale whimsy. The collection was inspired Emilie Flöge, Viennese bohemian, fashion designer and muse to Gustav Klimpt. The clothes were shamelessly pretty and feminine. The collection offered little in the way of casual, pragmatic pieces. But what it lacked in utilitarian ease was made up for in dreamy romanticism.
