We’ve been lucky to attend to Custo’s runway in New York, this time the venue and organization was different but his escence as designer remains.
This are our favorite looks of the runway:
Custo Barcelona was founded by the Dalmau brothers, Custo and David, following an extensive joint world-wide journey. During their fascinating travels, the siblings chased new horizons, exposing themselves to a plethora of artistic, cultural and philosophical influences. Using their findings as the foundation, the brand was launched under the name Custo Line in 1982. The Dalmau brothers began to learn as much as possible about printing techniques and unique finishes to garments, placing precise attention on graphic design when creating each piece.
Today, Custo Barcelona continues the Dalmau brothers’ narrative and since 1997 has been showcasing collections under the current company name at New York, Barcelona and Milan Fashion Weeks. Innovation and creativity lie at the core of the brand’s signature style that has become instantly recognizable thanks to the brothers’ bold use of graphics and color.
In June 2019, Custo Barcelona signed a licensing agreement with Italian firm Velmar S.p.A., company of Aeffe Group, for the international development of the brand. The agreement includes the production and worldwide distribution of men’s, women’s, leather goods, shoes, accessories collections. The The Dalmau brothers will continue being the brand’s creative minds, coordinating a team of young designers while Velmar will take care of all business aspects.
