New York (EFE).- Custo Barcelona presents a new collection defined by the experimental at New York Fashion Week in which it mixes volume, shine and color to give “excitement” to the autumn-winter season.
Down coats, in their short and more voluminous version, were the predominant option to combat the cold and were made with lively finishes, such as metallic blue, bright white or yellow leopard print.
However, the dress was once again the star garment: in the “mini” size it was seen to be tight and short or looser and with movement; printed with jewel colors such as turquoise or in an iridescent tone, and almost always with suggestive openings that exposed the skin.
They also highlighted the “mini” skirts, with ruffles or tables; the sets of tight pants and matching top in jewel colors or the long dresses with mirror decorations, all of this always combined with half-round boots and stiletto heels, also in colours.
“Welcome to the other side”, por Custo Barcelona
The creative director of the house, Custo Dalmau, called the proposal “Welcome to the other side” and explained to EFE that he has continued to bet on that creativity that has been the engine of his pieces for 42 years and which he has not dispensed with even for the cold season.
“’Welcome to the other side’ (refers to the) emotional side of clothing. The clothes have a functionality that we maintain, but we give it the plus of emotion and try to create an advanced language of emotional fashion”, added the designer behind the scenes.
Dalmau acknowledged that the last three years, as a result of the pandemic, have been “hard for fashion, but now it is already mentally overcoming itself, people want to turn the page” and it is once again “programmed” to dress above functionality and comfort.
Recently arrived from seeing the proposals for men in Paris, he opined that “fashion at the moment is flat, creativity is needed and above all color is needed”, for which he assured that his firm is ready to “take off” and promote the “return ” to the risky.
The presentation, which is part of the fashion shows of the Federation of Latin American Designers, took place in a loft studio in the Chelsea neighborhood, with the Manhattan skyline behind the windows, and featured the Spanish designer Agatha in the front row. Ruiz de la Prada.
