style.com: Custo Barcelona Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear review
NEW YORK, September 11, 2011

For Spring, Custo Dalmau played with shifting holograms, creating 3-D prints on garments that, when sold, will come with their very own pair of high-tech 3-D specs. To give to your date? To better see yourself? Who knows—it’s all part of the wacky Custo Barcelona gimmick. Flat prints were a big story, too. One sheer printed tank top featured a pair of hands coming around from the back and reaching up to grab the model’s… well, you get the idea. That top wouldn’t have worked so well on a guy, but Custo did show some looks intended for both women and men. For the most part, this meant T-shirts, shorts, and blazers. Happily, a pair of gold mesh hot pants that zipped up both sides was girls-only.
