Date: Saturday, February 8th Venue: Angel Orensanz Foundation
Custo Barcelona takes us on an East Asian themed journey into space with a cosmic Chinese opera mask motif collection of military-style athleisure and holographic designs. Beach wave hairstyles emerged slicked and clipped, coupled with fresh-faced makeup.
Womenswear featured satin scarf halter blouses, logo t-shirts, and vibrant sweater tops. Custo Dalmau reimagined leggings with Chinese symbolism, while jogger and track pants showcased in metallic satin with pearlescent side stripes. Sheer fabric flowed in long skirt styles with gathered and ruched detail and metallic applique. Leisurewear made headlines in metallic and high shine materials, like glossy jumpsuits, opalescent overalls, and dramatically patterned hoodies with reflective accents. Windbreaker separates presented couture appeal, fancied with side slits, decorative side release buckles and multi-pockets.
Dresses captured the imagination, styled in jacket and blazer looks, wrapped, open back and single sleeved. More lax dresses surfaced in tunics, jumpers, and windbreaker looks with hooding, cinched waists, buckle accessories, zip detail, patchwork style, and woven patterns. Dalmau played with abstract colors and textures. Iridescent and glossy finishes combined with fringe, netting, perforated metallic fabric, sparkling and sequin applique, and jewel-tone satin, with polka-dot, zig-zag, and folklore designs.
Futuristic themes continued with radiant and pearlized hooded, puffed and quilted outerwear with exaggerated pockets and elaborately fashioned varsity jackets. Trench coats dazzled in tropical brocade and liquid gunsmoke. Peekaboo styles included a sheer vinyl rain poncho with Chinese print underlay. Oversize coats displayed wide pockets, buckle embellishment and three-dimensional texture. Everything down to footwear made a statement, from mesh and leather textile sneakers to lavender tinged holographic ankle strap block heels and metallic brocade booties.
Men’s fashion trended with graphic and multi-color shirts and sweater tops. Splashes of floral, shimmering textures and Chinese themes played throughout. Tracks suits, athleisure leggings, and side stripe pants paired well with stylish sneakers, and jackets and coats integrated seamlessly in illuminating and lustrous textures.
