    The Look: Bright colors, oversize prints, layered looks, empire lines, rugby stripes, oversize bows and buttons, and pretty, prom-like party dresses. The Designer: Throughout his career Jacobs have never been afraid to push the envelope: "I love that reaction of love or hate. It's indifference that bores me to death." America's darling of fashion received highest honors from Parsons School of Design, and soon after launched his namesake label in 1986. It was while he wasVice President of Women's Design at Perry Ellis that he debuted the grunge-inspired look that became his signature. Luxury French house Louis Vuitton, taken with Jacob's strong self assurance, hired him to design their first ready-to-wear line in 1997.

    The Custo Barcelona fashion empire was created in the 1980s after the brothers Custo and David Dalmau went on a round-the-world motorcycle trip and came back impressed by the California lifestyle, especially the colorful and innovative T-shirts that didn't exist in Spain at that time. Signature Custo Barcelona knits and t-shirts are screen-printed in bright colors with unique illustrations and intricate details such as embroidery, foil and metal graphics. The brothers continue to expand their horizons, having recently expanded to include handbag and denim lines. The Custo Barcelona line is available in no less than 30 countries, enjoying a particularly strong presence in Europe and Australia.
