Custo Barcelona was created at the start of the 80s by the Dalmau brothers, Custo and David, following a long journey which took them around the world. On their way they discovered not only new horizons but also a huge swathe of artistic, cultural and philosophical influences.
One of the elements that most attracted their attention was the style in California, expressed in the look of the surfers living to the south of the State, as well as the psychodelia of the northern part. The innovative fashion - full of color - that they found there impressed them, especially a style of T-shirts that did not exist in Spain at that point.
Using this as a starting-point, the brand was launched under the name of Custo Line. The Dalmau brothers began to work learning as much as possible about printing techniques and their finishes, placing particular attention on the area of graphic design, with which they felt particularly comfortable. Over time, research into the use of color and prints turned predominantly innovative, bold and sophisticated.
Custo Barcelona could currently be claimed to exist as a style in itself which to a certain extent suggests a particular way of viewing life. A lifestyle that is expressed in collections for women and men.
CUSTO BARCELONA TODAY

Collection_THANK YOU, NEXT
Looking to the future for inspiration, Custo Barcelona has put forth a collection that takes an imaginative journey through time and space, conveying a message of universality and optimism -- a vision of peace for all.
The Fall / Winter 2020 collection is designed around a 24/7 life. Through the use of technological fabrics, it provides both comfort and functionality with pieces inspired by sportswear, which introduce the language of Custo Barcelona to a new generation. Special attention has been paid to outdoor garments: from anoraks to quilted pieces, these styles offer an oversized fit and their sporty appeal can be seen in details such as pockets, jumbo zip closures, automatically closing buckles and reflective fabric inserts. Emphatically voluminous coats and jackets are intertwined with the body-skimming silhouettes of skirts and dresses, which feature asymmetric hems and sensual transparent elements.
