Custo Barcelona is well known for their signature use of bold colors and fabrics and this season they do not disappoint. Their collection begins with a range of earth toned casual clothing for both men and women followed by a beautiful duet of animal print jackets over sheered tops and short shorts. A lively collection of men’s jackets paired with shorts followed, with a progressively bolder color palette. The collection finished with a series of bright dresses and suits, as well as a striking geometrical bathing suit. Custo continues to explore the use of fabrics this year by combining sheer textures with their characteristically bold color choices.
