Custo Barcelona. 12th edition 080 Barcelona Fashion
The well-known local firm Custo Barcelona closed wednesday evening the third day at the 080 Barcelona Fashion catwalk unveiling their collection 'Before New York'. The Catalan brand - one of the most wellknown internationally – wanted to give a sneak preview in Barcelona at part of the collection for the Spring-Summer season 2014 that will be officially presented next September during New York Fashion Week.
The designer Juan Pedro López opened the afternoon session on the catwalk with his collection “Part XV”. A highly sophisticated creation evoking dusk on the Island of Santorini using silhouettes, patterns and volumes derived from Greek folklore. Playing with transparencies, textures, shine and images, the creator suggests a sophisticated look for chic and smart women. The collection hinges on black, white and the fresh mauve of a flower, with a profusion of glitter that the designer applies equally to dresses, as to overcoats, trousers and even to bathwear.
Celia Vela relieved Juan Pedro López on wednesday afternoon at the 080 fashion event to present her spring/summer 2014 collection. Her creations, which are well-known for having a style that is highly influenced by Japan -she currently has a showroom in Tokyo–, has on this occasion been inspired by a personal occurrence: a dream her daughter Mila had that featured three fairies. From this starting-point, Vela has designed an ultra-feminine collection which expresses itself by building on white, turquoise, red and gold, with shimmering fabrics, satins and chiffon, very see-through and with garments that emphasize the length of the female back by leaving it bare.
For their part, the firm TCN showed their own creations for spring/summer. The collection revisits their brand classics and consolidates the '24 hours' concept, ranging from lingerie and corsetry, right up to homewear, for outside and bathroom range. The predominant colours are blue and metallic hues in all their versions, combined with a marked tendency for stripes, or very fine pinstripes, TCN’s signature look for the season. For outer wear, the firm put mini-shorts in rustic and lacy cotton and laced more-feminine-than-ever laces.
