Barcelona—Custo Barcelona’s Spring 2012 collection hits the runway at New York Fashion Week on Sunday, but we’re already excited over the Spanish brand’s expansion in accessories.

Custo Dalmau, the brand’s designer, hopes to target a “more heterogeneous market which loves elaborate design and attention to detail in creations that live up to the original, playful and eccentric spirit” that defines Custo Barcelona.  The “premium” price collection includes handbags and small leathergoods, belts, footwear and fashion jewelry.

‘Playful and Eccentric Spirit’

The handbag and leathergoods collection consists of night, top, day and gift, made from top quality leathers, exclusive trim and a more minimalist statement. Footwear covers a full range from high-leg boots with inner platforms and square heels to a deeply-cut, ultra-high salon shoe in nappa animal print and a soft strawberry and camel ballet flat with stretch sides.

The Custo jewelry collection, which is made in gold and silver plate with crystal details, is broken down into four different series: Custo Rock’n Roll, Custo Love, Custo Rebel and Custo 100%.

Lastly, Custo has included belts, which have made a huge comeback in the last few seasons to become a key item, now updated in its Rock’n Roll style.

The new accessories collection is available in shop concepts within Custo Barcelona stores but will soon be sold to other accessories retailers.

Founded in the 1980s by Custo and David Dalmau, the Spanish brand has carved a niche with its colorful fashions with a character all of their own.

Custo Barcelona operates in 80 shops in 40 countries and is sold more than 3,000 doors, a number set to rise with its current plans for entry into new markets such as Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil and Venezuela.
