Spanish fashion label CUSTO BARCELONA showed again their new collection at Mercedes Benz’ New York Fashion Week. For spring/summer 2013 CUSTO BARCELONA offered a lot of architectural lines and sheer, comfortable volumes combined with some slim tight pieces. Graphics inspired by the seabed, the cosmos and the constellations are also prominent on the lighter pieces and can be found on mirror-like fabrics and silk and nylon transparencies.

Netting and tulle in bright colors also prevail as key fabrics in the collection, in coordination with metallic film prints, Lurex, elastic bands in various shades and geometric lace. Natural-fiber jacquards in fluorescent colors further form the basis of this new graphic collection by the label.
Custo Barcelona offered a bright and varied palette in both the women's and men's collections, featuring everything from pastel colors and whites to the most acid of greens, streaked with daring strokes of black. All in all, it represented an avant-garde fusion of colors to form dresses, tunics, unstructured suits and even a swimwear line.
