Designer Custo Dalmau loves a busy pattern. But for Fall, instead of relying on clashing prints to get the Custo Barcelona message across, he played with texture and the idea of a guillotine splitting looks straight down the middle.

"I wanted to create something optical," the designer said the day before his show, in his studio underneath the Custo Barcelona store in Soho.

The collection also aimed to capture a single fashion moment: 1980. It was after disco but before the power suit, which meant people didn't know exactly what to wear. Dalmau did his best with a shaggy black coat dipped in pink and camel. It was a piece that could easily be found on the streets of New York, or even London. The rest, as usual, was designed for the brand's very specific customer, who probably does not reside in one of those cities.

The makeup theme for models of this show was inspired by the 1970s. Beauty tip: “To make your eyes look bigger, bold eyelashes are full on top. On the bottom lid, press your eyebrow pencil at the center of your bottom eyelid and draw the line out to the end,” said a Maybelline representative. Hairstyles featured a sharply cut bang.
