One of my favourite labels arrived when Ion Orchard opened in Singapore – Custo Barcelona! I’m attracted by the vibrancy, sexiness and effortless beauty of their designs and flair for discovering freedom, flamboyance and confidence in fashion. I can’t live without colours, and I discovered my personality in CB 🙂
Started by brothers Custo and David Dalmau in 1981, Custo Barcelona was born on a motorcycle trip across America. Inspired by the lax attitude of southern California, the pair returned to their native Barcelona and started a business crafting T-shirts for men and women with screen-prints and illustrations. Now the brand extends to everything from suits to swimwear, and it’s still the colors and prints that keep bringing customers back. The look is bold, bright, and psychedelic, and has a particularly high appeal in international markets—they account for almost 85 percent of all company sales.
Clients: Charlize Theron, Taye Diggs, Christina Aguilera, Antonio Banderas, Shakira

Even their sweaters look so gorgeous!
The best part is, they have a line for males too!
Check them out here, and @ Ion as well 🙂 Their F/W 2010 collection’s out already!
