Last season saw the Spanish brand Custo Barcelona debut their much-awaited childrenswear line 'Custo Growing' at Pitti Bimbo and Fimi Valencia. After a successful first season, the brand are back with a larger Spring/Summer '11 collection. The signature style of Custo Barcelona has always been about colour and print which translates so well in childrenswear. Childrenswear, specifically girlswear, has a love affair with all things print and if Custo Growing were looking for a slight cash injection, then the brand are sure to do well in this market. The Spring/Summer '11 collection heads to the Spanish playas for a big old party, featuring lots of fluro shades, pinks, greens and oranges are scattered on a multitude of outfits. The direction of the prints heads to the late Eighties and the rave scene with graffiti and tribal-style prints. There are also some references to the Seventies' style silhouttes with head wraps, kaftans and tunic tops. There are shades of Yves Saint Laurent's Marrakech-inspired works in the late Seventies.
Boyswear is less bright, choosing a safer pallet of denim blues, soft greys and calming greens. The standout look was an interesting graphic print pair of trousers and rain jacket with bleached treatments. Fabrics of the collection are more casual, with cottons and jersey being key, but chiffon creeping in on some of the girls' tunics. Overall the show is a flamboyant burst of colour and perefct for beachlife everywhere.
