WHITE goes Back to Basics

Looking for the perfect comfy basics that make your outfit casually chic?

There is a new knitwear line called WHITE to fulfill your needs that is perfect for high quality basics. I got a sneak peak at the line at this super comfy orange and white stripe tank.  It is founded by Entrepreneur & Creative Director Julie Chaiken.

@Custo_Barcelona in Action at NY Fashion Week

Custo Barcelona presented X-ray, its new Spring-Summer 2013 collection, during New York Fashion Week. The collection invites viewers to conjure up the firm’s color and graphic universe through the filter of transparencies.

Created in the union of components to formulate one-of-a-kind fabrics and innovative textures, X-rayexudes architectural lines and sheer, comfortable volumes, together with pieces that hug more closely to the body. Graphics inspired by the seabed, the cosmos and the constellations are also prominent on the lighter pieces and can be found on mirror-like fabrics and silk and nylon transparencies.

Netting and tulle in bright colors also prevail as key fabrics in the collection, in coordination with metallic film prints, Lurex, elastic bands in various shades and geometric lace. Natural-fiber jacquards in fluorescent colors further form the basis of this new graphic collection by Custo.

Custo Barcelona offered a bright and varied palette in both the women’s and men’s collections, featuring everything from pastel colors and whites to the most acid of greens, streaked with daring strokes of black. All in all, it represented an avant-garde fusion of colors to form dresses, tunics, unstructured suits and even a swimwear line.

In accessories, the glasses were handmade from acetate in pastel tones with futuristic touches especially for the catwalk. The bags and watches played on the genuine, colorful geometric design and combined flawlessly with the palette used in the garments, making them the perfect final touch to top off the looks in X-ray.

The runway show was attended bya multitude of spectators, who did not want to miss a single detail of the new Custo Barcelona collection. Seated in the front row were Alexa Ray Joel, America’s Next Top Model Judge Jay Manuel, Celebrity Stylsit June Ambrose, Miss Universe Leila Lopes, Miss Teen  USA Logan West, Actor Vincent De Paul, and James Goldstein among many others.
