Review Collection

A Custo Barcelona collection is never lacking in the exposure department, but Spring took baring (almost) all to the next level. “The goal was to show the body,” designer Custo Dalmau said at a preview in his Broome Street store. He did that by punching cutouts and keyholes onto the hips of already scant minidresses, which were made decent by satin bathing suits in the house’s lively prints. Even the more covered-up numbers offered a bit of reveal, including a white lace, collarless V-neck jacket and a black teardrop lace tank top with a metallic glaze. Dalmau tempered the provocative look—albeit only slightly—by using more black and white than usual. His print mash-ups—such as an embossed graphic satin patchworked with metallic embroidery and beading—were still very present. But did it look good? Taste is such a subjective thing, informed by province and personal culture. For the Custo Barcelona customer who loves Dalmau’s outlandish aesthetic, there was plenty on offer.
