If there was ever a season for Custo Dalmau to tell everyone “I told you so” this was it. The reason that is – is because so many collections this season have touches of his color treatments from season’s past. Then you step forward and see what he’s done this season and get a sense that although the bright vibrant melange of colors are still apart of what he does, he’s gone in a different direction making harmony on fabric. That is, where previous seasons were very abstract in nature and echoed a party – club Euro theme, this Fall season continues what was seen in Spring – sophisticated aesthetic. From the mohair dress with banded colors to the metallic dress accented with fur coat, the checkered short suit to the grey dress with cutouts this evolved theme is still youthful but intelligently cool. For the men, you’re still getting the colorful Euro direction, but there were some pieces that the American male could feel comfortable wearing, possibly because it’s caught up with Dalmau’s forward thinking designs. Regardless, he’s pieced together an visually attractive collection that will be top of many fashion follower’s minds.
