THIS COLLECTION IS DESIGNED FOR A WOMAN WHO WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS HER INDIVIDUALITY C usto’s newest collection reflects the well-known Custo-DNA of sophistication and refinement, a path initiated last spring and summer and continued in this winter collection presented at the New York Fashion Week and 080 Barcelona Fashion Week. Custo is pushing design boundaries yet continuing with its chic, sophisticated and elegant face. They propose layers upon layers, with hairy coats, airy fabrics and transpar- ant blouses, daring even with the ‘animal print’, that is entrenched in some parts. The prints, another of the characteristic features of the brand, are being underlined by the use of base prints, such as tartan, which are also combined with fur in both the women and men’s collections. The best results are presented in dual fabrics combined in a single garment, which has been one of the key looks of this new collection. Typical winter colours (black, grey and camel) serve as the foundation on which bright colours like fuchsia, purple or even neon colours are applied. Also, the graphics reflected on silk with metallic effects illuminate an important part of the pieces. This collection aims to show the feminity of women, high- lighting the waist with black or chocolate coloured belts and settling into the straight lines, leaving the volume only for the sleeves, with their Japanese-inspired shapes. Accessories such as shoes and hats, are military-inspired and based on combinations that are also used in the overall looks. This collection is for a woman who likes to express her individu- ality, young spirit and understands fashion with some irony. • 31
