Case Study

We opened Custo Barcelona’s first UK store in Westfield Stratford City.

We partnered with international fashion brand Custo Barcelona to open its first UK store in the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre in time for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

“We’re thrilled not only to be opening our first UK Custo Barcelona store in Westfield Stratford City, located as it is on the doorstep of the upcoming London Olympics, but also to be able to make such an exciting visual statement through the store’s imaginative design,” said Hugo Dean, director at Love Brands, UK distributor for Custo Barcelona.

Sold in more than 40 countries, Custo Barcelona and its more price-competitive casualwear range Custo Line has 70 standalone stores and 3,000 stockists, among them some of the world’s most reputed boutiques.

The brand’s seasonal catwalk show at New York Fashion Week is underpinned by a loyal consumer following, inspired by Custo’s ability to redefine the hottest trends through a graphics-led kaleidoscope of prints and a passion for cutting-edge fabrics.

The 1,600sq ft Westfield Stratford store will reveal an ambitious new retail design concept for Custo Barcelona. Designed by directional Spanish architect firm Dear Design (www.deardesign.net), the visionary concept features a dramatic geometrical ceiling structure made up from a complex assortment of abstract vectors. The new retail design will not only provide the blueprint for a roll-out of UK stores but is also planned to be implemented across all new international openings.
