NY Fashion Week: Custo Barcelona

When it comes to mixing and matching patterns and textures, no one does it quite like Custo Barcelona. The line, from Spanish brothers Custo and David Dalmau, is known for wild colors and patchwork styles, which sometimes work and sometimes aren't so easy on the eyes.

The Spring 2007 collection, shown Thursday at New York Fashion Week, is best consumed in small doses. I loved the use of bright yet muted colors against gold accents, as well as brocade-like patterns that evoke exotic bazaars. However, I thought the line overdosed a bit on colliding stripe designs, and I also could live without the pointy elfin booties. But at least no one can accuse Custo Barcelona of being dull.

I like the colours they use (but not all at once) and some of the prints are interesting. I think some of the pieces would be nice if you match it with something denim.

Interesting enough, but not practical. A bit too "out there" for me.

A few years ago (maybe more like 5) I liked Custo Barcelona, but they have progressively gotten weirder and weirder!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Why? Why would anyone ever think this would be a good idea? It's the drugs kids. Clearly drugs were involved in all of this. Hallucinogenic fashion at its best.
