Custo Barcelona’s vibrant, NY Fashion Week Fall 2010 invitation had us looking forward to a night of Hairy Metal. Strobe lights, heart thumping music, and a very large audience at the Tents, set the mood for Custo Barcelona’s Fall 2010 runway show on Valentine’s Day.
Known for their psychedelic designs and brilliant hues, the Spanish fashion label brought just that. Although the models ripped the runway at a mile a minute, the audience was still able to take in Hairy Metal in all its glory. Staying true to its roots, Custo Barcelona incorporated their infamous illustrated t-shirts into some of the looks. Thigh grazing, shaggy mini dresses were popular as were the strips of fur that wrapped around many pieces. Plush, jewel-toned neckwear provided maximum warmth while studded suits provided the “metal.” Prints! Prints! Prints! Colorblock, geometric, paisley and abstract designs permeated throughout this Fall 2010 collection.
While there are a few pieces that even the meekest fashionista and fashionisto would be tempted to wear, many of the looks are definite fall options for fashionable risk-takers.
