when i saw the Delpozo Spring 2014 collection i had two thoughts: (1) WOW and (2) this is crying out for a comparison series. before i delved into my little project, though, i looked through every piece on Style.com. what a collection. and upon reading more about it, saw that designer Josep Font was inspired by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s portrait La Zingara. so, i suppose this is kind of serendipitous.

Madrid-based label Delpozo made a splash with its New York fashion week debut last season and delivered again for Spring with a positively enchanting collection inspired by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s portrait of a Gypsy woman with a tambourine. Creative director Josep Font, who relaunched the storied Spanish brand just over a year ago, has become known for his unique “prêt-à-couture” that combines unexpected volumes with intricate embellishments in a modern, unstuffy way.

  1. you’re a visual genius, seriously, as an iconography obsessive geek, i’m deeply jealous of your visual associations and compositions. RESPECT.

  2. honestly this is my favourite thing ever! the collection is stunning, the paintings are stunning, this is what I love about fashion. You’ve combined the two. I’m so inspired. I make baroque inspired crowns, and this is giving me so so so much!

    • takes me a few hours, depending on where i find the artwork. executing them doesn’t take long. i do them in photoshop.

  3. Absolutly beautiful. You have such an eye for the color and subtle patterns that made these paintings fit so magically!

  4. WAW, this really blew me away. I adore your comparison series. You have such a great eye for it. How did you find these amazing matching paintings? Is there an image bank or you knew about them already? Bravo!

  5. well done!!! this is one of my favorite features on your blog, and this one is exceptional!

  6. Amazing job here!!! When I first saw this, I assumed it was part of a lookbook put out by the designer. The comparisons are brilliant.

  16. Hi Diana, first time here, found you through Stumble, and I fell in love with the images in this article! It’s been a while since I began researching about how fashion is inspiring interiors today and how the opposite may start to happen as well. And this post remind me of that exactly, this is how so creative but so distinct areas can obtain inspiration from one another. Also, I know you don’t do advertising posts of any sort but I dare you to have a look at the brand I represent as PR and Press Director, KOKET (www.bykoketcom). You will find that our products too are deeply inspired in fashion. From the peacock feathers of 2012 to the metallic looks of 2013…. We breathe fashion and the decorative arts :) Let me know what you think… Fabulous blog!
