Davidelfin - New York: Spring 2010
(NEW YORK) David Delfin may be a Spanish former actor with friends like Pedro Almodovar, but chicsters as well as film buffs should remember his name. In the first official show in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tents, Delfin sent out a focused, tailored collection--with a twist. "Ambiguity has become the core for our work, transforming into a trace, our sign of identity. We feel attracted and trapped by the androgynous and the undefined because it arouses the imaginary in us," said Delfin via his run of show notes. Translation? Men's and womenswear that was practically interchangeable; tailored suiting and shirts, with quirky "undefined" elements like pants with an attached skirt or a button-down mysteriously missing a sleeve. Delfin's color palette stayed in the greens and blues, bringing a springy edge to a light collection.
