Two of the many designers with two distinctly different takes on fashion.
Custo Barcelona: www.custo-barcelona-store.com A collection for those who think and wear young. Custo’s fashion ethic exhibited outfits generous with colors, fringes,
and prints. Apparel that is perfect for experiencing beachy Hampton summers and attending those requisite rock festivals.
Custo Barcelona combined never-idle prints with fringes and or other prints never parsimonious with, but rather accentuations of, high-spirited color. Custo Dalmau’s, (designer for the Custo Barcelona name brand). styles had hems that were a cut above the very upper thigh creating heat but not from the weather.- Our favorite playful frock was the pastel, (cornflower blue, grass green, hot pink) open necked, vested, short-short ensemble. Whereas these are not office garb, it is no doubt Custo Dalmau garments are to be worn to entertain in many senses of the word.
Vassilios Kostetsos: (www.vassilioskostetsos.com) A++ for posh and striking! The summer and spring wardrobe for tony men and women. From Palm Beach swimwear to attire strictly for that hot cocktail party to the elegant evenings in Monaco Casinos It is obvious the Kostetsos designs not only don’t disappoint but excel in enrobing his models—and potential wearers,–
Vasillios Kostetsos has long been a favorite of this journalist for his avant-garde outlook that he translates into clothing lines for men and women. His interpretation of color and how it effects this beholder’s eyes nothing less than amazing. For instance, he presented us with a hot peach bathing suit with airy flowing drape emanating from the sides and back waist accentuated by thigh high black boots. Shortly after down the catwalk came an indigo long sleeve dress, with brown belted waist full skirt and those wonderful Kostetsos signature angularectangle shoulders. A great variation on shoulder pads—but better. We cannot leave out that spectacular strapless brief white number flaunting the hour glass curves with the feather-like, layers of silver from top to bottom, (also in that “timer shape”), that would leave no widened in awe.
As for the menswear, we want to see men wear Kostetsos for he showed us the possibilities of male accoutrement such as in his shiny white, feathery and collared, zippered vest, AND the netted black cloak a male model strutted across the walkway with pride.
Mr. Kostetsos is deservedly held in high regard. He successfully takes chances. He shows the versatility of fashion, and has the talent to express that for both genders. Bravo
