Custo and his brother David Dalmau are known here for their vibrant, multi-graphic, screen-printed T-shirts influenced by the surf culture. By combining colors and graphics from different periods and places around the world with screen-printing techniques that had not yet been introduced in Spain in the early '80s, the brothers revolutionized knitwear in that country, before storming Europe and America.
Custo Barcelona's bold graphics translate well on TV, where garments have been worn by the young and trendy, such as Jenna Elfman on "Dharma and Greg," the cast of "Friends" and hosts of E! and MTV.
Custo Barcelona has expanded into quality knitwear featuring a collage-style mix of luxury fabrics in tunics, pants, skirts and dresses.
Custo Dalmau will be in the first floor Leisure Apparel department from 3 to 7 p.m. tomorrow.
A little closer to home, Julie Wong will be showing her handmade gems fashioned from precious and semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls.
Wong's organic aesthetic was shaped by the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Although she has family in Hawaii, Wong was born and raised in Portland, Ore., where the simplicity and harmony of her surroundings gave her a respect for older traditions that valued and celebrated the hand-crafted object.
She works with a palette of aquamarines and peridot reflecting the outdoors, as well as lustrous cream, apricot and lavender-pink, suggesting the color of sand or soft, billowing clouds.
Wong will be in the store's Designer Jewelry department from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.
