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.

Collection_Wake up World
Custo Barcelona presents its new Spring 2021 collection “Wake Up World”, inspired in the new awareness arising out of the experience of recent months in a spirit of optimism and change. A celebration of respect, of taking the time to admire the beauty around us and, ultimately, to reconnect with our humanity.
Colour is the core of this collection, with white being the main protagonist, combined with neon, glitter and unique visual effects created by the overlaying of different textures; it is also experimental in the choice of materials and forms, rediscovering the silhouette, with windows onto the body with gaps through artfully created patterns for a renewed experience of sensuality.
