Miami, FL (PressExposure) May 11, 2008 -- Last week at CondÃ© Nast Travelerâs annual Hot List party, celebrities like Ashley Simpson, Natasha Bedingfield, Elizabeth Hasselback, and Joan Allen were welcomed into the beautiful CAPRICHO by CUSTO RESIDENCES lounge alongside New Yorkâs elite. Attendees sipped signature âCapricho Margaritasâ, marveled at wall-size images of the gorgeous ocean property, and were able to speak with the projectâs new partner, designer Custo Dalmau of CUSTO BARCELONA. Custo spent time with fashion fan and Oscar winner Adrian Brody and his girlfriend actress Elsa Pataky, and discussed how he began his new journey doing interiors, a restaurant, and spa design at Capricho Residences; the magnificent new resort in Playa Mujeres, Mexico.
Custo Barcelona will provide an exquisite and unique touch to this uber-luxury project on the Mexican Caribbean. The world-renown fashion houseâs partnership will be apparent as guests stroll through the property and marvel at the vibrant âtile-artâ being created by Custo for the flooring of the main pool. The propertyâs Beach Club will feature Custo elements such as original murals at the entrance, CUSTO pool umbrellas and interiors fashioned by the designer. The spa at Capricho will feature a âdreamlikeâ circular mural by CUSTO on the ceiling, exclusive design elements in the treatments rooms, and eco-friendly CUSTO Barcelona signature uniforms for the employees. âCusto Barcelona is a chic, unique luxury brand perfectly paired with Capricho - a chic, unique, luxury resort,â explains Custo.
All CUSTO murals within the property will be interpreted using indigenous elements such as stone, marble, woods and glass; paralleling the nature-inspired philosophy of Capricho. The projectâs commitment to the environment is ever-present as the 600+ attendees of the HOT LIST party found out when they received an eco-friendly Capricho grocery sack as a gift. The bag, made of natural jute, helps to limit the use of traditional plastic grocery bags.
