I was not too fond of this collection, I guess I always expect this designer to surprise me like he always does. I know that embroidered garments and bell bottoms is in style now now but I guess I expected more for 17/18.I find his muse Rihanna to be an inspiration for this ready to wear collection.

Were talking about the designer who created costumes and looks for world tours for Michael Jackson, Lady gaga, Britney Spears, Rupaul, Mick Jagger, The scissors sisters, And of course Rihanna and her River island retail brand.
Denim, metallic dark blue, red passion, is the colors mainly used in this collection. A great comeback for denim lovers. Bell bottom with long button down dresses, belts as a detail to accentuate the waist line. I understood the concept of the rose but as far as the direction he took had me a little lost. The messy hair bun, grease button down neckline and plaid seem to added to the very informal casual collection that can please lots of women who are just looking for something basic and not too over the edge.
Love my job, love working with fashion lines that challenges ones creativity as far as the use of tropical cool colors in in the cold season and textures that are so different but well blended together to make a fashionable statement. when ever I get a chance to work with Custo Barcelona I find a fun moment to learn and expand in the creativity department. A Spanish fashion line that has been around since 1981. one of the founders of European/Spanish fashion lines. One of the first designers from Europe to present in NYFW. One of the first to apply Graphic design in clothing in a way that it would play with your eyes as if you are looking at a Salvador Dali painting. With Custo Barcelona you have to focuser on the details.
I love dressing the mannequin mans collection also I think its one of the best men clothing line for a guy who wants to stand out and be unique in his own way. One who is not afraid of prints and colors and if you aren’t so convinced I would recommend that you start by combining one Custo Barcelona article you bought with something clean and plain that you already have in your closet. like a nice Custo Barcelona printed shirt with a nice clean pair of worn out jeans. Cant wait to see his next fashion show …Good people to work with. And yes I am wearing a Custo Barcelona winter collection called Candice long made with linen so it keeps you warm during the cold season this designer thinks a lot about the details remember .
This season its about denim. worn out, washed out, new, old, formal or informal the shoe will mark the difference. If its dark or electric blue the better. try introducing blue details in your outfit its a great way to introduce a little bit of color in autumn and winter with out sticking to the basic typical popular autumn dull colors.
