I have a confession to make. Even though I’ve been blogging for 1.5 year now, I still feel like I’m discovering new things every single week. While I was working on my organisation plan for 2017, I decided that I should step up my game and asked Taria-Ann if there’s something missing on my blog.
“Which stories are hiding in those walls?”. I often wonder while standing in front of a beautiful building. Generations come and go, with architecture as their silent observers. There are so many untold stories created behind our walls, some of which create an unexpected impact while others are simply passing by.
Last week it was 080 Barcelona Fashion Week! Since I moved to this amazing city some months ago I obviously HAD to be there. Flying in straight from a fun weekend in Ibiza, I got home, changed into my fashionable outfit and drove to Montjuic, where the 080 Barcelona Fashion Week was held this week. Let’s check out my looks!
Custo Barcelona once again lives up to its iconic style with the AW16 collection. Mixes of colors, graphics, fabrics and layers are present as ever in this cheerful presentation. It’s safe to say that over the years Custo has become more than just a fashion label, it’s a particular way of viewing life: the representation of a lifestyle.
Leopard prints, mohair, hippie trousers, Eastern inspired prints, sporty mesh, British checkers, graphic lines and feminine laces & ruffles: Custo sure loves to create an eclectic mix-up of everything that inspires the label. A continuous motive however, are the colorful patches and embellishments applied to the designs. Also we can see many sporty details as a consistent tendency throughout the collection. It’s fascinating to see that some of the outfits at first sight seem to be a layered combination of designs, but after a closer look, prove to be in fact one complete design with separately attached materials. This once again proves the constant search for innovative improvement and creativity of Custo. Whether you love it or hate it, no one can deny that this designer label has outstanding production techniques and lots of enthusiasm for cheerful fashion.
One of our favorite designs is the flared trousers with applied ruffles on the bottom in order to create movement while walking. Another great look is the transparent lace dress with a body underneath. Perhaps some of the looks on the catwalk might be quite intense for those who prefer a more casual style, but if you imagine combining Custo with your own wardrobe, it suddenly opens up so much fun styling possibilities! This label is without a doubt for the creative daredevils of society; do you think you’re up for it?
