Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland S/S 2012 in Łódź: Custo Barcelona

A riot of pattern and colour for S/S 2012 from Custo Barcelona. The opening show on the main catwalk at Fashion Week Poland, on Thursday 27th October 2011.

Custo Barcelona has not registered massively on my radar beyond a vague knowledge that it’s a super colourful brand, but I must confess that the Custo Barcelona show, which opened the main schedule at Fashion Week Poland, was a fabulously fun affair. It was indeed a riot of pattern and colour, but according to my esteemed international colleagues this season it was far more restrained than usual.

Male and female models marched out two by two in matching outfits before breaking out alone. The collection featured a multitude of different fabrics layered on top of each other, and covered every possible summer garment, from sexy cutout patchwork bikinis to suiting and hoodies.

Shoes for women were particularly spectacular with spiked heels like the ridged back of a Stegosaurus, a touch echoed on the sides of swimsuits. The collection featured darling purse belts slung over hips and amazing digital prints that were hard to determine but possibly featured horses’ eyes encrusted with sequins. Embellishment abounded.

I’ve always been partial to a bit of bright and lairy menswear so I particularly enjoyed some of the fab Custo Barcelona suits, with crazy metallic stripes and amazing sunburst patterns.

Later on designer Custodio Dalmau himself joined us for a meal in a Polish restaurant. God only knows what he made of the outlandish behaviour of some of the international crew, letting off steam after a long day at the shows.
