On Sunday, September 7th, I had the opportunity to attend Custo Barcelona’s SS15 runway show.
The name of this seasons show was SKIN and for good reason. It showed A LOT of skin, but just in the right places to make it, new, fresh, sexy and something that would catch everyone’s eye. The see-through materials combined with the perfectly placed cutouts made this season very refreshing and it made my heart very happy to write a piece for the show.
When taking a look at the fabrics and how they were treated you would never have guessed linens were the main fabric used in the collection. The geometric cutouts contributed to transforming the linen into having a light feel to it and making the collection be something I have not seen in a long time.
The cutouts also created a really beautiful effect that made the collection perfect. The effect made it very feminine and made the collection youthful. The mix between the stiffer linen and soft silks really made the collection seem youthful and easy to wear.
The colors used were fresh and the prints were daring. When I lose the weight I am fighting with Custo Barcelona’s SS15 collection might be my go to purchase to reward myself. The cutouts did limit who can wear the clothing but what a great incentive.
I am not the only fan of Custo Barcelona though. It was a celebrity packed runway show with. Everything from actors, to tv-personalities to models took the time to stop by Custo Barcelona’s runway show. I got to have a glance at Vincent de Paul, Adriana de Moura, Edy Ganem, Sylvie Meis, James Goldstein and Nigel Baker, just to mention a few.
