Everything started from a desire of deconstruction, a need to break not just the apparel but the whole concepts involved. Thinking about clothes every season requires specific and rational rules. In ‘Wintry Summer’ collection, Dalpaos tries to do exactly the opposite.

‘Wintry Summer’ was inspired by theconnections of different concepts and shapes, opposite seasons combined through targeted fabrics selections, fits and details. The combination between winter fibers, such as wool and summer ones, like linen shows what ‘Wintry Summer’ is about.

The color pallette is inspired by landscape images of the sea view during the winter time and mountain view in the summer period. The need to shake up every certainty, looking far from everything defined as “usual”, the desire to setting up a new point of view both at shapes and colors.

The way this collection looks like is as it doesn’t follow seasons, historical periods or rules. In every collection Dalpaos collaborates with an artist and creates a special ‘handmade’ project in a limited edition. For SS18 ‘Wintry Summer’ collection, Gaetano Ricci has used new personal processings and concepts. An intimate study of different geometrical shapes starting from the tangram game seen as a connection point with the brand. Every single figure has been hand drawn on a selection of 3D effect fabrics, each image represented is perfectly combined with the collection concepts giving a new twist between art and design.
