Barcelona: A city known for its hot weather, hotter citizens and raging all-night nightlife. Custo Barcelona: A brand known for hot styling, hotter customers and clothing perfect for raging, all-night nightlife. Although the line is ready-to-wear, the brand’s iconic, brightly colored silk-screened and pieced tops for men and women manage to look like they’d be at home in an East Village or Lower East Side boutique of artisanal, hand-made T’s; each features intricately silk-screened and embroidered graphic and figurative designs, such as abstractions of swim-suited women or Bob Marley. A penchant for piecing also dominates, with tops, pants, dresses, skirts and jackets constructed from any number of differently patterned fabrics, for a near-anime aesthetic. Custo releases two collections a year—fall/winter, spring/summer—with new products arriving in from Spain every other week.
