Custo Barcelona has always been known for their iconic prints and vivid colours, later they hit the scene with awesome graphic character designs which I just love. At the time the characters tended to be pictured by themselves or in ‘cool’ settings like cities shopping or on a beach. In a fit of indulgence I bought three (clearance prices of course!) which I thought looked like me and I could identify with. I really wanted one (or two ahem) of the thick, cozy zip up jumpers they had as well but they were a too pricey.
I love wearing these tops because they have a positive vibe and they’re bright/colourful; kinda a top I have from when I was approx 14/15 which is tie dyed in almost every colour with a big heart with beaded perimeter on the front of it and even though the hems are fraying and a few beads have come off I still keep it and it’s still my favourite. So today I needed to feel a little upbeat and out came one of my Custo’s – perfect.
The trousers are from Next, petite range in faux suede – they’re mums but she doesn’t wear them anymore.
Here’s some pics from 2008 of another of my triplicate of Custo:
and for a laugh a couple of even older pics with my old trademark stripey flame hair wearing my favourite rainbow top 🙂
