BIOGRAPHY

Custo Barcelona was created at the start of the 80s by the Dalmau brothers, Custo and David, following a long journey which took them around the world. On their way they discovered not only new horizons but also a huge swathe of artistic, cultural and philosophical influences.
 
One of the elements that most attracted their attention was the style in California, expressed in the look of the surfers living to the south of the State, as well as the psychodelia of the northern part. The innovative fashion - full of color - that they found there impressed them, especially a style of T-shirts that did not exist in Spain at that point.
 
Using this as a starting-point, the brand was launched under the name of Custo Line. The Dalmau brothers began to work learning as much as possible about printing techniques and their finishes, placing particular attention on the area of graphic design, with which they felt particularly comfortable. Over time, research into the use of color and prints turned predominantly innovative, bold and sophisticated.
 
Custo Barcelona could currently be claimed to exist as a style in itself which to a certain extent suggests a particular way of viewing life. A lifestyle that is expressed  in collections for men and women
 
CUSTO BARCELONA TODAY
 
Custo Barcelona is currently a consolidated image brand that, since 1997, unveils its collections each season at New York Fashion Week. Innovation and creativity are at the root of a style characterized by the use of graphics and color that have become iconic.
 
Their success has become recognized by not only the public buying their garments but also by fashion professionals, the media and the world of celebrities.


COLLECTION - YES, THIS IS ME

Custo Barcelona presents a creative, powerful and self-confident woman for their Autumn-Winter 18/19 collection: “Yes, this is me”. A proposal aimed at women who want to express their individuality and strength freely through risk in many aspects of their lives, fashion among them.
 
Creativity and innovation are the concepts that set the tone for each of the garments; in the fabrics used and in the new silhouettes and lines with the asymmetries experimented with in this new proposal. They are comfortable garments being made of elastic materials but they take risks in the aesthetics. A collection of pieces that seeks to create a unique wardrobe for new generations of women who believe in themselves and in their future.
