Custo Barcelona is by far my favorite show, and one that I am always excited about attending during Fashion Week. It is fun, eclectic, and always has me on the edge of my seat! And, their autumn-winter 2012 show did not disappoint. This season’s key fabric is wool, crafted in different ways. Like graphic boiled wool or cut-off wool mimicking tectonic plaques on embroidered fabrics.
The designer also presented perforated wools as a base for pieces revealing what is underneath, and wool cut in small geometric shapes that create ironic animal figures. Other important elements for this season are metallic colors and tricot pieces with high-quality materials. Color is a key player with shades of green, red, brown, ocher and gray dominate the color palette. Each color becomes a symbol on the catwalk, transmitting Custo’s energetic and sophisticated personality.
The front-row at the Lincoln Center show was occupied by America’s Top Model judge Miss “J” Alexander, NYC socialite Tinsley Mortimer, actress Torrey Devitto, Real Housewives of New York Jill Zarin, Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, supermodel Almudena Fernandez, singer Zak Ambrose, and German television personality Loulou von Brochwitz.
