This evening the King and Queen of Spain attended the 50th anniversary celebration of the Spanish sports newspaper, AS.
Their Majesties presented awards to Spain's top sportsmen and women at the gala event held at City Hall in Madrid.
Queen Letizia surprised us by debuting a new frock from Delpozo. This is the first piece she has worn by the Spanish heritage label. Founded by fashion designer Jesús del Pozo in 1974, the fashion house was renamed Delpozo, with Josep Font as its Creative Director, following the death of del Pozo in 2011. Today, it’s a key show at New York fashion week, where the label has become known for its feminine DNA, bold use of colour and architectural shapes, born out of the couture-like approach Font applies to his collections.
Spanish fashionistas and royal style watchers have long wondered when or if the Queen of Spain would don a piece by Delpozo. Tonight she put that to rest when she stepped out in a gorgeous insignia blue cocktail dress by the fashion house.
The dress is defined by a 3D rosette detail at the bodice and features an off-the-shoulder neckline, three quarter length sleeves, and a pencil midi skirt. It is from the Pre-Fall 2017 collection and retails for US$2,750. It is currently on sale at these retailers: Bergdorf Goodman ($1,650), Saks Fifth Avenue ($1,650), Farfetch ($1,650), Moda Operandi ($2,393), By Symphony ($2,909), Italist (€1599).
Letizia accessorized with her navy Felipe Varela satin clutch and navy Nina Ricci suede pumps.
Completing the look were her Chanel 'Plume' earrings.
I hope Delpozo becomes a staple part of Queen Letizia's wardrobe because the luxury prêt-à-couture fashion brand offers a wonderful collection of bold yet feminine designs.
