Custo Barcelona Spring 2014 Collection - Chic, Contemporary, Color PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Custa Barcelona design - photo by Luxury ExperienceSpanish Designer Custo Dalmau of the brand, Custo Barcelona, presented a "chic, contemporary, and colorful" women's and men's collection for Spring 2014. Never shy when it comes to bold, graphic prints and color, Custo continues his tradition since launching his label in 1980 with his brother David Dalmau. Luxury Experience brings you a few of the many highlights of the show that we saw during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York.

 

"Tribal inspiration results in a sophisticated atmosphere. Déshabillé dressed get paired with oversize coats, and cocoon pants live perfectly alongside mini shorts. Swimwear takes center stage as garments in their own right, wearable in all types of situations. Signature Custo Barcelona graphics are printed in Lurex thread fabrics for one-of-a-kind shine and luminosity, and overlaid silk chiffon provides glimpses of the shape and the printed innerwear. Tribal-inspired geometric shapes unfold creating new optical effects on the garments. Embossed guipure lace of varying patterns also creates transparencies in coats and tunics."

For Spring 2014, Custo uses a color palette of bright colors incorporating pink, orange, lime green, metallic blue, ochre, lilac, red, and metallic gold in his women's and men's collections. He uses graphic prints and sneakers in his men's collection to create a "metropolitan skater" look.

A few of the many show highlights of the Custo Barcelona Women's Collection was a jacket with long fringe shoulder detail worn over a swimsuit that would work well paired with a skirt, pants, or shorts to create a complete look; his sophisticated tribal print hip-grazing jacket and top; and printed bikini worn with matching printed jacket.
