DELIKATESSEN SS14: Abstract Optical Art Collection
The Spring Summer 14 season obsesses over qualitative fabrics from Italy and Japan, mixing them with inspiration from Delikatessen's two homes; Poland and the Netherlands. This time around, except for looking at Berlewi's square and symmetric artwork for inspiration, Delikatessen designer Andre Lisowski also collaborated with Warsaw-based graphic designer Edgar Bąk on the prints in a primary, monochrome and pastel colour palette.
The SS14 lookbook, styled by London-based writer and editor David Hellqvist, showcases the richness of Delikatessen's fabric selection. "The fabrics are our Delikatessen," explains Lisowski. Highlights from this season include a Japanese melange jersey, wash-out effect linen, mixed cotton and linen, softened cotton herringbone, fine linen suiting fabrics, Gabardine quality and bleached denim and overprinted chambray: "We like fabrics woven from different colours of yarns, they garments get a textural feel. We passionately believe in reinterpreting classic fabrics," says Lisowski.
Delikatessen is an Amsterdam-based menswear line, founded in 2009 by Andre Lisowski and Stephen Hartog. Delikatessen is focused on well-tailored, but effortless garments, that combine traditional craftsmanship with a modern approach to design.
