Hairy Metal by Custo Barcelona

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York was once again and for the last time set at the Bryant Park and the host for the presentation of Custo Barcelona's autumn-winter 2010 / 2011 collection. Together with 800 other attentive guests and starlettes Connor Paola, Tika Sumper, Kristen Dalton and Stefania Fernandez we began the show – a metal bath of vibrant contrasts of colors, texture and materials. Sparkling metals melted into pure lines to form new volumes that contrast with the warmth of fur.

Hairy Metal, Custo Barcelona dazzles the New Yorker fashion scene.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York was once again and for the last time set at the Bryant Park and the host for the presentation of Custo Barcelona's autumn-winter 2010 / 2011 collection. Together with 800 other attentive guests and starlettes Connor Paola, Tika Sumper, Kristen Dalton and Stefania Fernandez we began the show – a metal bath of vibrant contrasts of colors, texture and materials. Sparkling metals melted into pure lines to form new volumes that contrast with the warmth of fur.

Custodio Dalmau, the mastermind behind Custo Barcelona names his new collection ‘Hairy Metal’, which is a strong, energetic and contemporary collection, keeping up with the new era.  Colors such as bronze, steel, gold, black and rust comprise a new palette mixed with graphics inspired by mercury, melted silver, red hot iron and tin.  The cold of metal is contrasted with fake fur, all been developed in every imaginable form. Hairs of different lengths and colors have been mixed together to create new graphic effects that are sinuous, geometric or crossed. Different types of furs have also been mixed with wools to match the color graphics and produce volumes that create new depth.

Custo Barcelona's winter collection is about contrasting looks, melting metals, a veritable ode to the periodic table of elements.
