Call it what you want, Custo Barcelona puts on a pretty darn good show. The vibe in the showroom was full of Latin flair, with celebrities and socialites from Custo’s native home of Spain. Custo Barcelona’s collections aren’t for everyone, but there is just something about his style that is incomparable.
The theme was summer fun, beachside, poolside, or just pure relaxation on a holiday. A holiday that includes fashion that shouts eccentricity and a certain European style. A style that can be worn on the streets of Monte Carlo, Cannes, or Milan, or even New York City.
It seems as though the pool shoe is going to be a major trend this season, as it was seen in many of the shows including Custo Barcelona’s. The colors were vibrant, with hues of pink, purple, yellows and blues. From the sequined track pants, that went well with the pool shoe I might add, and gold lamé track pants, this was clearly a collection that was meant to be fun. There were many eye-popping sheer blouses worn by the model, but this was all in traditional Custo style.
