For Spring Summer 2015, the Custo Barcelona collection stayed true to is inspiration of “SKIN” in nearly every way. Showcasing looks with geometric cutouts & subtle transparencies in a range of textiles, from ultra light linens to flowy silks & arranging each strategically on the sides & backs of garments to create an optical illusion of depth, underlying the silhouette & ultimately what lay beneath, the inspiration was seen throughout.
Designer Custo Dalmau continues his juxtaposition of color, prints & textured textiles that have long been his trademark. Short baby doll dresses, cropped jackets, mini skirts & shorts with intricate cutwork & uniquely textured appliqués were used throughout as were patterned sandals & boxed heels on the footwear. The openings on the fabrics and cutouts allow a sweet, seductive side of women to show thru in a seasonally perfect manner.
Continuing to play with exquisite & delicate detailing, this ode to sensuality gives way to a sweeter side of femininity via layering softly & uncovering the skin.
