Nokia x Elle Day 5: Custo Barcelona S/S 2012

After getting a make-over from Blue Mercury, the finalists headed back to the hotel to shoot videos (yes, we do shoot videos a lot, I’m pretty excited to see the final output). Anyway, after shooting, Jessica and I rushed to the Lincoln center to catch the Custo Barcelona show.

Also, I had the opportunity to go backstage and meet the designer himself, Custo Dalmau, we talked about his inspiration for his Spring/Summer 2012 collection, he said it was all about creating a “contemporary graphical language” and he did communicate his vision very well. It’s great to see how the clothes were styled according to the designer’s perspective, there was a great mixture of colors, print and texture. The metallic trend is also very visible in his collection, but what he did was to actually combine it with different elements to create a stand-out shocking look. The whole collection eliminated the need for accessorizing as the clothes were already statements on their own.

I never got the chance to take good photos on the runway so thank you, another reason to save up and get a Canon. 🙂
