    On WWD this morning, it's not confirmed but wow this is surprising. Can't read the article as I'm not a member, can anybody post?

    YES!
    I’m happy for him even if I’m very surprised.
    He knows the cut, the couture allure and the sophistication but his fashion is more down to earth.
    It’s a change of direction for Delpozo and maybe an opportunity to expand their business...

    I’m curious tho.

    I can that his design has couture and glamorous sensibility but his POV is very down to earth. I'm very curious to see how this would pan out. It's quite unexpected choice.

    Well his talent didn't need validation from a house or someone else's legacy, but maybe his wallet does.. or maybe he's craving Madrid (or both- as I do :brows:).

    wonder what will happen to his label... labels like that are becoming so rare, maybe it’s a good idea if the few left just call it a day and leave PFW as a sneaker and sweatshirt shit show.

    still not confirmed, and still not sure if he’ll continue his own brand.. I would be sad if he didn’t , he’s never been as visible as now , or relevant.

    It makes me really happy that his consistently good work finally picks up steam and recognition beyond the faithful audience he's already had for more than a decade. I never cared much for Delpozo but I will certainly look forward to his work there, come fashion month!

    On Vogue Runway just now

    "Paris Fashion Week is studded with star turns; one of its hidden gems is Lutz Huelle’s show. There, one can count on discovering delightful deconstructions, like an asymmetric jean jacket and dress hybrid, or an unexpected proportion. Now, with his appointment at Delpozo, this German-born, Paris-based designer will have a much-deserved chance to really shine.

    A graduate of Central Saint Martins, Huelle has racked up awards. The same year he launched his own line, 2000, the ANDAM prize was his; two years later, he participated in the Hyères Festival. But what most qualifies Huelle for the Delpozo job is the time he spent working by the side of Martin Margiela, fashion’s most elusive—and at the moment, most referenced—designer.

    The Spanish label Delpozo was founded in 1974; Josep Font brought it back to life in 2012 with pure volumes à la Cristóbal Balenciaga, lively color, and references to contemporary art. Font exited this year. With his experience working on Margiela’s Artisanal line, Huelle seems an ideal fit for a house known for its creative prêt-à-couture approach to fashion. Not only does he have a firm grasp of the high-low approach, but he has internalized the lessons he learned from Margiela about subverting tradition. Expect the unexpected from Huelle."

    I'm happy for him. His Instagram is exploding with messages. This might be the most attention he's ever had

    Ohhh??? This was something I sure didn't know I needed. Really can't wait to see what he does there!
