Fun, funky, sex, psychedelic street wear with a look-at-me-I'm-the-bomb energy, Custo Barcelona is the ambassador for Barcelona, home to some of the most beautiful women in the world!

Designer/brothers David and Custodio Dalmau have said they were inspired in their design by a trip they made to California in the nineties. They returned to Spain wanting to recreate the wildly colored tee shirts they saw on the streets of LA. But just as Taiwanese director Ang Lee can step back and reinterpret American culture with an outsider's eye (The Ice Storm, Brokeback Mountain), Custo Barcelona has served up a vision of a California that is essentially American but flavored with Spanish street sophistication; it's us but interpreted through the designer's kaleidoscopic prism. Bravo to Custo for a stunning line.
