Barcelona, Spain – Custo Barcelona once again lives up to its iconic style with the Fall Winter 2016/17 collection. Mixes of colors, graphics, fabrics and layers are as present as ever in this cheerful presentation. It’s safe to say that over the years Custo has become more than just a fashion label. It’s a particular way of viewing life: the representation of a lifestyle.
The collection includes the leopard prints, mohair, hippie trousers, Eastern inspired prints, sporty mesh, British checkers, graphic lines and feminine laces & ruffles. Custo sure loves to create an eclectic mix-up of everything that inspires the label. A continuous motive, however, are the colorful patches and embellishments applied to the designs. Also we can see many sporty details as a consistent tendency throughout the collection.
It’s fascinating to see that some of the outfits at first sight seem to be a layered combination of designs. But after a closer look, it proves to be in fact one complete design with separately attached materials. This once again proves the constant search for innovative improvement and creativity of Custo. Whether you love it or hate it, no one can deny that this designer’s label has outstanding production techniques and lots of enthusiasm for cheerful fashion.
One of our favorite designs is the flared trousers. Ruffles have been on the bottom in order to create movement while walking. Another great look is the transparent lace dress with a body underneath. Perhaps some of the looks on the catwalk might be quite intense for those who prefer a more casual style. However, if you imagine combining Custo with your own wardrobe, it suddenly opens up so much fun styling possibilities! This label is without a doubt for the creative daredevils of society. Do you think you’re up for it?
