Pat Field would have a field day with Custo Dalmau’s genius craft; if only she had one more episode of Sex and the City to style! Custo Barcelona’s collection was for that dashing diva; that style star; that risk-taking wearer. What seemed to be the magic formula to Custo’s enchanting ensembles was the fact that there was no obvious recipe — just dazzled doses of vibrant fabrics. Wild splashes of metallic color against brocades and jacquards tied the collection together as sequined jackets and leggings, watery colored paisley chiffons, beaded mini dresses, and lurex tweet blazers with feather detailing came down the runway. There were silhouettes of many kinds but the cool color tones along with silvers and golds certainly remained the constant. Girls just want to have fun! Recession? What recession? Custo Dalmau certainly understands the power of color, as he proved throughout the fall 2009 collection.
