Custo Barcelona founder Custo Dalmau seems blissfully oblivious that the world is in the middle of an economic downturn.
After all, there’s nothing but growth on the horizon for the 80 million euro, or $124 million at current exchange, brand, which has been enjoying 5 to 10 percent annual increases for the last decade. Dalmau specifically has an eye on growing Custo Barcelona’s U.S. retail platform with more of its own retail doors, additional product categories and even a new franchise strategy.
