Custo made a home run with his AW16 collection because he did what he does best- used his signature shapes and colors to introduce the best 60s comeback ever. Custo was born to bring the 60s back and it can’t possibly be more exciting. The thick ivory white tights should be street uniform worn with ankle boots in multiple colors. The ivory Square shape glasses are a trademark of the new poster face, the new faces of a new Andy Warhol factory girl.
Turning point of the collection, psychedelic or not, is that it is incredibly sexy, the mini skirts, the sheer silks, and the school dresses. She who wears it is the most glamourous bohemian women on the planet, a woman who is not afraid to risk everything to leave her mark in this world.
Such a wonderful time, the 60s, a time when new post World War hopes and dreams were awakened and endorsed by a highly alternative society- there were the yogis and the vegans of the now but with much more style and class. While the neo-alternatives liberate via self-discipline and consciousness- eating in a specific way, frequenting specific people and performing self-healing rituals, the youth of the 60s gained their liberation by experimenting with drugs, alcohol and music- destructive but highly creative.
The Custo AW16 makes us go back to those rebellious times and embrace our inner creative soul- he always had with his collections. This one in particular makes us wanna be a groupie so bad.
