It’s a riot of colour at Boutique 1 as the luxury fashion retailer unveils its latest window installation featuring designs by Madrid-based prêt-a-couture label Delpozo. Collaborating with Delpozo’s creative director, Josep Font, the multi-label store showcases artwork from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 resort collection that embodies the designer’s architectural aesthetics.

Font, who is a former architecture student, prominently features geometric shapes and 3-D pleats in his evidently couture-inspired ready-to-wear. With celestial and oceanic elements at the fore, the line draws inspiration from French cinematographer George Meliès’s iconic work Le voyage dans la Lune but with Font’s own colour twist.

Speaking about the much-anticipated collaboration, Font commented: “For my first Resort collection I was inspired by the lunar and sea world of George Meliès as I had recently gone to a retrospective of his work. I was drawn to those elements, but I wanted to give it a twist with colour. Even though the star prints and the fish embroideries are quite playful, I wanted to increase it with the splash of colours that we used for the background”.
Delpozo S/S17 Collection
Known for referencing art work from past and present when creating his celebrity-loved designs, Font created an homage to Meliès’s masterpiece Le voyage dans la Lune by upholstering the mannequins in hand-painted canvas panels depicting a reinterpretation of the collection’s key starburst print.
