If you aren’t familiar with Custo Barcelona’s work, imagine an artist goes out for drinks after finishing a masterpiece. She celebrates with two (or ten) whiskeys and trips on the way back to her studio, splashing her carefully chosen paint palette all over her clothes. After catching her reflection in a puddle, she decides to keep wearing them.
Decades before students started silk-screening their favorite fast foods and celebrity selfies onto t-shirts, Custo has been creating psychedelic prints. As someone who’s been present at every NYFW since before you were born, we thought he’s the right dude to ask how to sneak into fashion parties.
At his show we also ran into James Goldstein, a man known for having impeccable taste (cowboy hats and leather pants) an incredible home, and the hottest girls on the planet. He’s probably the only person in the world who can compete with the number of NBA games and fashion shows Rihanna attends.
