“Bricking” is a design element that runs throughout the collection. Squares are stacked in a unique combination of black, red, and orange. “Pulled metal” weaves metallic threads into individual pieces for an iridescent look, while “wet paint” is splashed onto tops and sweaters by a unique airbrushing technique. For the women’s collection, it takes 70’s spin with patchwork denim skirts, flared jeans and deconstructed denim jackets. He also introduces a new line of coats, which includes sophisticated empire-waist, three quarter length coats and vintage inspired Japanese kimonos. Feminine angora sweaters and form fitting leather dresses round out the collection for sexy or subtle looks. Finally, Custo is pleased to introduce a small collection of handbags.
