I just got a hold of some sketches from the hotly anticipated Custo Barcelona show that will be lighting up the Tent at Bryant Park on Sunday, September 13th. The theme is Lowxury, a word created by designer Custo Damau to denote the sophisticated line, yet affordable line.
Lowxury is hyper-feminine, with many daring details. The pieces are full of surprises, loaded with detail, but with a sly wink that gives the baroque a humorous twist. Dresses inspired by the 1920s, asymmetric tops, baggy jumpsuits, puffball dresses, tunics and blousons in printed silks and linen combined with flashes of pure colour, shining crystals and metallic sparkle.
