Custo Barcelona. Spring-Summer 2015
The Catalan firm Custo Barcelona closed the third day of the 080 Barcelona Fashion, an event that is being held from last Monday until next Friday in the Sant Pau Art Noveau Site. The Dalmau brothers presented, in the framework of the Catalan fashion show, their collection for next spring/summer 2015.


Lebor Gabala opened the afternoon shows presenting ‘Un verano con olas’ (A Summer with Waves). Setting the scene in a garden by the sea, designer Maite Muñoz presented a range that banks on retro maxi-dresses and maxi-skirts with ruffled details, pyjamas, shoulder-strap tops and soft draped rayon trousers.  


For her part, creator Txell Miras showed ‘Present’, a collection that is structured in two different but complementary blocks. The first line is based on the fall of the fabrics, with draped garments and pieces in sheer cotton and silk that instill comfort and freshness. For the second block, the designer conceived a much more rigid silhouette, starting from a scheme of apparently identical patterns that keep evolving, showing light modifications while repeated. 


Designer Josep Abril, awarded Best Collection in the last edition of the 080, took over the shows to present his menswear range for next spring/summer. Entitled ‘Sakura’ (Japanese for cherry blossom and symbol of ephemerality), the new Abril collection is characterised by the use of blue, green, black and grey shades in linen and cotton garments.

Following, designer Miriam Ponsa presented ‘Mujeres Mula’ (Mule Women). In this occasion, Ponsa got inspired by the bearer women from Melilla, who carry heavy burdens through the Spanish border to Morocco. Therefore, straps play an important role in her collection, used both as fabrics and as joints between different parts of the garments. The designing patterns are conceived from burdens and rucksacks, in oversize and multi-layered designs.  


During the morning, Bóboli, CND by Cóndor, Naulover, Aldomartins, Who and Yerse offered their shows.


The firm Bóboli presented ‘Paseo por la Toscana’ (A Walk through Tuscany), featured by flowery patterns, big cretonne prints, mild colours in shades of pink and violet for the girls and acid colours for the boys. 


CND by Cóndor took the baton to present their kidswear collection entitled ‘Fruits&Cream’. They were inspired by the feelings arisen from eating fruit and the flavour of ice-cream, to present a collection of simple lines, comfortable and practical pieces in cotton, crepe and denim in and bright colours such as papaya orange, watermelon red, vanilla and strawberry. 


For its part, the firm Naulover showed ‘Spicy Candy’, a collection in which colours and prints stand out. They bank on silk, viscose and rayon fabrics to create garments in straight lines, long skirts and contained volumes that flow from the shoulders.

Aldomartins presented their collection ‘Geometrical Blossom’, inspired by the concept of nature in Eastern art. Taking advantage of the new technologies in knitwear, the company reinterprets traditional Asian motifs in sophisticated jacquards and intarsia-knits that result in fresh summery designs. 


Under the title ‘Sky&Sand’, designer Laia Roca for Who, presented a collection in natural colours (off-white, beige and sand) contrasted to blue fabrics that express the fragile duality between the sand, represented by transparencies, and the strength of technical fabrics. 


Finally, Yerse closed the morning shows with their collection ‘Escape Land’, inspired by ‘a sublime moment to escape the routine’. With this as a starting point, the company presented a collection that revisits the knitwear classics through technological textures. The fabrics are inspired by tablecloths and hammocks, placing stripes and checks in a modern context.
