Custo Barcelona is a brand founded by Custo Dalmau and his brother David in the 1980s. Custo is known for its signature look missing fabrics and patterns, utilizing bright and bold colors.
After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Custo Barcelona returned to New York Fashion Week powered by Art Hearts Fashion at The Ziegfeld Ballroom on February 13, 2022 in New York City. Custo came with a collection that represents the idea of shining again to radiate light and illuminate the world. In Custo’s collection we can find different shapes and patterns that played on a variety of fabrics including shiny velvet, multicolored sequins, shiny jacquards and vibrant satins, creating a sophisticated and adaptable collection. The stunning collection included outerwear pieces that appeared on the runway, such as straight cut maxi coats and quilted micro jackets full of glitter and creative details.
A signature element in the entire Custo’s collection is the use of vivid colors and bright prints, highlighting colors such as royal blue, navy blue, emerald green, red and pink in conjunction with a more neutral palette such as gray, khaki, beige, nude pink, white and black. The Custo Barcelona collection features apparel, accessories, eyewear, fragrance, and watches.
