New York Fashion Week with Custo Barcelona

It's a complete coincidence that this post is about another designer out of Spain. Maybe the universe is telling me something as I've been toying with booking a trip to Barcelona. The brand was started in 1981 by brothers Custo and David Dalmau. Signatures of the brand include bold colors and patterns in lux fabrics, both made appearances in their fall 2017 show. Lurex, a metallic thread was prominent in the show in bright colors synonymous to the brand. Geometric cutouts graced the models slender hips and shoulders. Patchwork appeared on everything from a knee length vivid red ruffled coat to a shimmering blue lurex dress. Knee high boots strutted down the runway along with sunglasses that came in shades of pink, purple and red. After the show was over I wonder why it felt so familiar and realized it reminded me of one of my childhood heroes, Jem and the Holograms.
