“El viejo mundo se muere. El nuevo tarda an aparecer. Y en ese claroscuro surgen los monstruos.”- Antonio Gramsci
“The old world dies. The new one takes time in appearing. During this gray area, the monsters come.” This quote brings forth the David Delfin’s SS 2015 collection for MBFW Madrid called “El Tiempo de los Monstruos”–Time of the Monsters.
The collection started off with sharp, geometric angles and crisply tailored pale blue suits, white shirts and boxy black shorts for men. Delfin created an interesting take on the backpack, a triangular shape with thin straps, a side pocket and a red, bold triange shape on the back. A definite standout piece, one can be worn in the back as a traditional “backpack” and also worn in the front–a new look, “the frontpack”.
Each of the looks was paired with polka dot Dr. Marten shoes, adding to effervescent quirkiness of Delfin’s design aesthetic. The models having their ears painted blue gave off that ‘monster’ vibe.
The show closed out with some fabulous bold emerald green sparkly looks, which would be a bold look for a confident man hoping to stand out in a crowd.
Front row celebrities include Alaska, Carmen Lomana and socialite Belen Esteban.
