Feminine strength denoted Lydia Delgado’s collection for us, rather
more than her own ‘gothic, urban look with feline lines’. Delgado
went angular more than feline—not that that was a bad thing. This
was about survival in urban Europe, with a range of slim-fitting
elastic wool coats that used buttons as a design highlight. High-cut
fencing trousers were also shown in the first part of
But the urban, well travelled girl needs to let
loose. Delgado gave us the gothic influences for evening, but principally
with the use of black. Embroidered tulle rosettes, lace, organdy
and silks, and the introduction of cherry, emerald and violet shades,
were applied to more flowing skirts and wraps with a feather effect.
Fur trim on more sumptuous evening jackets rounded off the collection,
one which seemed to speak well to the Lucire idea of feminine
strength and independence. Thematically, it was harder to pinpoint,
but we predict the items will meet with much favour in European
stores this autumn.
Lucire thanks the organizers of Moda Barcelona.
