Custo Barcelona Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week
Famous Spanish fashion design house Custo Barcelona has just come up with its brand new colorful spring 2016 RTW collection named “Slow”. Do not hurry to be misled by the strange name, as the meaning and interpretation of the collection are way too far from the actual style we find in it. Although described as “slow”, the Custo Barcelona spring/summer 2016 collection comes imbued with wild prints, energizing colors and the brand’s signature tribal motifs exercised in a pretty subtle way to appeal to your senses.
An extremely rich collection of 76 futuroscope unique looks has been created with the aim to propagate the beauty of individualism and imagination showing the counterattack to standardized fashion. The creative director of the brand, Custo Dalmau compares fashion and designing with cooking suggesting the benefits of trying new things, going against the currents and setting your own revolutionary style in the fashion world.
Using mind-blowing amount of bold patterns, mixing them together and putting them on typical Custo Barcelona designs, Dalmau creates an atmosphere of a futuristic world, where women aren’t afraid to attract extra attention wearing daring designs to the streets.
Lightweight dresses, vertical and horizontal stripes on blazers, shorts and pants, bold short tunic-like dresses featuring lightweight fabrics in orange, white, black and white hues that don’t feel overwhelming, transparent pieces appearing here and there quite frequently are what the collection brings in abundance making sure you never lack creative ideas of what to wear in spring.
We see a lot of bold mixes of colors and details: there are summer tops and dresses with skin-revealing cut-outs, deep V-necks, thin straps and ethnic patterns. There is a lot of sun and beach feel in the numbers with transparent fabrics, mesh-inserts and super-easy sit on the body.
You could just choose one of the eccentric loose short dresses, the jumpsuit with sizzling vertical stripes and orange pocket on the chest, the bikini with its graphic top, one of the slightly prolonged thin-strapped A-line tops with flared capris and the long-sleeve greenish graphic skirt-suit with a bra-like crop-top worn underneath and your summer must-haves for unforgettable travel adventures are ready!
What we especially love about this line is the fact that it offers such a great range of cool choices to suit almost any occasions while ensuring you look super unique and stylish. It has pants, shorts, dresses of different lengths from the most daring shorts to the relatively modest ankle-cut, tops with straps, both short and long sleeves, capris, blazers and jackets, but also offers the two extremes of cold and hot bringing both sweaters and bikinis for the summer to come.
In addition, the Custo Barcelona spring 2016 collection is rich in amazingly practical spacious bags coming in matching patterns and colors with the clothes. Feeling the same excitement as at the beginning of the season’s sales, we can definitely say that the collection is a success, as expected.
