DELPOZO FALL/WINTER 2015

DELPOZO Fall-Winter 2015 109

Delpozo is unlike any other brand currently showing at New York Fashion Week. Elegant, impeccably tailored clothes, with gorgeous handmade embellishments that out-do much of what is shown on modern runways. The closest I can liken the experience to, is a less theatrical version of attending a Thom Browne show. And while both would seem more at home somewhere amongst the Paris couture shows, they stand out in a sea of “average”, and are the highlights of my NYFW show list.

Backstage, the works of painter Andrey Remnev served as inspiration for the collection, and the beauty, which translated into a look meant to mimic by “solid gold”.

ESSIE lead manicurist Julie Kandalec created a look featuring a small, but flashy stripe of gold glitter, meant to look as if models had “just pulled their hands out of gold”. To get the look: Nails were prepped with one coat of Matte About You. Next, using a striping brush, Good As Gold was applied in a fine strip down the center of the nail. Gold glitter polish Rock at the Top was applied over the stripe, and the look was completed with a coat of Second Shine Around (only on the stripe).

MAC senior artist Victor Cembellin created a “washed out” painterly makeup look, leaving skin and lips more natural, and focusing on the eyes.

To get the look: A blend of Motif Eye Shadow, Pervette Lipstick, and Reflects Gold Pro Glitter were applied to the corners of the eye. To complete the process, Studio Waterweight Foundation was applied to model’s lips to tone down natural lip color while MAC’s Dare you lipstick was applied to cheeks to create a rosy accent.

Hair focused on simplicity, with the focus this season being on the headpieces added just before the models walked the runway.

To get the look: Moroccanoil Global Creative Director Antonio Corral Calero applied Moroccanoil Treatment, and flat ironed hair straight. Next, hair was pulled into a sleek, side-parted ponytail. The look was finished by using Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to secure the look, and delicately pulling the pony tails through the headpieces.

Delpozo S/S 2014

Delpozo S-S 2014 -004

Delpozo’s SS14 show, the brand’s second since relaunching the label in 2012, was one of the most breathtaking shows of the season. The best fashion shows, in my opinion, are always those that imbue a sense of magic or whimsy, which this collection had in spades. Leading to it quickly climbing to the top of my SS14 favorites list!

The bright pops of color on the model’s eyes provided a nice contrast to the sweet, dreamy dresses in the collection.

The hair for the show, created by Moroccanoil Artistic Director Antonio Corral Calero mixed volume with sleekness, presenting the look as a smooth ponytail, with heavy volume on top. Hair was both simple, and unique amongst the many looks of SS14.

To get the look: Moroccanoil Treatment was used to prep hair, which was then parted in the middle, flat ironed, and tied off in a ponytail. Hair was then backcombed from middle to ends, about 4″ above the ponytail. To finish, models’ locks were smoothed into a rounded shape and topped off with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.

Inspired by the Corot painting “Gypsy Woman with Tambourine”, and stained glass windows, the clothing was equally as beautiful as the hair and makeup:

The collection, which struck me as at once both old-fashioned and modern, would be just as at home on a red carpet as it would on a woman walking down the aisle at her wedding.
