SS 16

Campaign for the Spring-Summer 2016 Dew Collection













The summer air shimmers with a hoard of fireflies, floating lazily, just above the garden. Just as the first rays of sun start to timidly crawl to the horizon, the feasters swiftly get up from their chairs and run into the garden. Soft shoes and sandals are tossed under a large sage. They keep running until dew, pink from the pale dawn, moistens their bare feet. Fireflies, sage and dew. Ancient pagan symbols of a spring celebration, offering a promise of fertility and luck. Waking up in the early hours of a pale spring morning, we are often mesmerized by the fresh dew on the meadows and hills around us. For us at Delikatessen, dew is pure, clean, velvety and fresh. Almost like a touch of magic.

In old times dew was seen by some as a source of great fertility and at the origin of matter. That’s why during the two months when the sun is in the astrological signs of Aries and Taurus (March 21 till May 21), alchemists would gather fresh dew from clean grass, to be used as a solvent in their potions. Delikatessen fabrics in the SS16 collection owe their fine structure and soft touch less to alchemy as to the combination of knowledge passed on from generation to generation. Pure fabrics sourced from factories run by true passionates, confident of their skills and enduring quality of the resulting garments. Transforming them into the Delikatessen SS16 Dew Collection: pure, clean, relaxed and concise. Almost like alchemy. Delikatessen SS16 Dew
collection aims for a pure, clean,simplified and concise look with a relaxed touch to skin and body. Japanese knits, soft cottons and refreshing linens from the French Atlantic and Baltic shores transformed intoa mix of elegant sporting looks and simple relaxed streetwear. The pajama as daily wear. Purified and cleaned: Delikatessen Dew SS16, ready for a pure summer breeze.
