Delpozo, AW15, New York.

The Delpozo collections often use clever pattern cutting details to create sculptural details or to support the silhouettes of the garments. In the Autumn-Winter 2015 collection some of the pattern making details worth noticing include sleeves that grow from panels or out of darts, and a sleeve that appears to be a variation on a raglan sleeve.

A very rough idea of the pattern shape of the raglan variation is included below, based on a theory of how the sleeve could be cut in a single piece to create a flared hem. This basic pattern shape relies on the darts and seams along the shoulder line to shape the fabric to the body.

Aside from the clever pattern details, there were also some nice uses of appliqué in vibrant colours and a few garments created in chunky knitwear. The more organic forms of the knitwear and appliqué add a nice textural counterpoint to the crispness of the tailored garments.
