Lanched in the early 1980s by Spanish brothers Custo and David Dalmau, Custo Barcelona first caught the attention of Hollywood A-listers with their coveted printed t-shirts and their use of bold, bright colors, graphic patterns and mixed fabrics. When the line first premiered at New York's Spring/Summer Fashion Week in 1997, it stood out among the greys and neutrals that dominated the runways at the time.
Today, the Custo line remains a celebrity favorite, with stars like Christina Aguilera and Shakira loving the looks that now include stunning dresses, swimsuits, evening wear, sunglasses and more! On Sept. 12, the international line will show its spring 2011 collection at Fashion Week in New York City. We got a sneak peek at what fashion lovers can expect!
Coined Custo Summer Festival, the spring-summer 2011 collection features vibrant colors and the brand's signature mix of fabrics for dresses, shirts, pants and accessories. The palette this season includes pale, dusty and nude shades and military color ranges, combined with embroidery, appliqué and patchwork.
