Custo Barcelona Fall 2012 Show – AFW

Custo Barcelona Fall 2012 Show – AFW

On Saturday afternoon, I saw the Custo Barcelona show. The brand is created by the Custo and David Dalmau (they’re brothers) who were inspired by Californian surfer style.

I definitely could identify the collection’s North American influence, with the thin layering, fitted sweaters and cool accessories.

Models wore stylish sunnies by eyes + more and all had wavy beached-out hair.

There was a lot of colour, with painted stripes. I don’t like wearing boots with no stockings, but those tweed boots with the contrasting leather heel are just gorgeous.

The collection featured a lot of funky tribal prints in rich colours.

There was also some refined, sexy simplicity. I love the way this shirt fell on her back.

I thought this tapestry jacket was so cool. Very wearable and the colour and print is urban, rustic and chic!

I love the pop of red in the gloves and hat.

This textured sweater is very interesting. I wonder if the knitting technique is worn inside out to expose those frayed ends.

This sweater was one of my favourite pieces. It had a unique shape and the grey and black fair isle print was subtle and elegant. I could easily style that with a pair of jeans or on top of an elegant black dress with pearls for a comfy night out.

This water colour print seemed out of place, but it was beautiful. As well as those graphic booties.

This vintage-style jacket made the crowd go nuts. You could hear a simultaneous wow from the audience and everyone picked up their cameras to take a picture.

I love the texture on this leather jacket. I’m not crazy about the styling, but that brown jacket needs to get on me now.

Yet another gorgeous tweed coat.

This textured furry dress is super cute. It would be so warm in the winter.

I also really liked that ladylike bag with the contrasting bow embellishment.

I really liked the textures and accessories in this collection. For me, fall is about rich, deep colours and playing with textures and Custo Barcelona definitely worked with a variety of materials. At times, it was a bit all over the place, but I liked that they unified the collection with those amazing matte orange lips and cute booties.
