It takes a great deal of talent and reinvention to keep it fresh season after season. So to keep it interesting for Custo Barcelona, this time Custo Dalmau had played with the medieval idea of bicolored garments, and presented his own version for fall. There were two-toned coats in solid black and gray, leopard print and tan; dresses and skirts in matte black and shiny floral. Skirts and coats, overalls and dresses – all paired with wide black leather belts – presented a more fitted fall silhouette. Piecing, mixing and slashing, colorful patchwork and intarsia – these were just some of the techniques used throughout the collection. With the usual effervescent lineup of appliques and prints, complimented by textural play of smooth on rough, and matte on shiny, Dalmau offered a variety of wearable looks and statement options. A bright multi-colored patchwork fur coat was my personal favorite.
