Custo Barcelona’s AW14 collection wasn’t about "the ‘80s", it was about 1980. Specifically. For designer Custo Dalmau, exploring this microcosm meant allowing for hints of ‘70s moments in the range, all the while knowing exactly where it was heading.

Bold, dark looks were punctuated by folksy pink tapestry that exactly encapsulated the moment in time. Retro looks still felt futuristic thanks to fresh takes on familiar territory, the silhouettes artfully recreated for modern times.

Models came accessorized with electric purple-lensed aviators and variations on Breton caps, while choppy bangs and extraordinarily wearable boots kept the collection feeling young at heart.

While the standout look was undeniably the fur that appeared brazenly unapologetic in red, white and turquoise, the less clamorous menswear deserves equal mention. The boys didn’t miss out on any of the fun, as flawless easy tailoring was accentuated by unexpected prints.

This will be the collection remembered for those looks slashed in two - garments marrying camel with grey or zebra, rendering a result much more wearable than you might expect. A women’s coat, with one side of classic black wool overlapping the other of grey fur, proved the looks didn’t have to be busy to get the point across.
