Can’t make it to NYC for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week? Don’t worry, OK!’s got you covered! Yesterday we caught Custo Barcelonas’s runway show for a sneak peek at the designer’s Fall 2011 women’s collection and we loved every minute of it!
SHOW: Custo Barcelona
WHEN: February 13, 2011
WHO: Wyclef Jean, Claudinette Jean, Miss J Alexander, Miss Teen USA Kamie Crawford
FASHION: Texture Texture Texture! Custo Barcelona did not hold back. Layers of mixed prints and textures flew down the runway. Velvet, thick tweed, shaggy sweater materials were paired with print metallic dresses and pants. To make every look pop, the collection was topped off with unexpected heavily textured sweater and tweed boots. This bright and playful collection is not for the faint of heart! This strong collection was created for one who will be strong enough to pull it off.
OVERHEARD: Wyclef’s wife Claudenette seemed to love every piece. She spent the whole show taking photos of her favorites.
