Soho is just getting brutally clobbered by foreign retailers these days. The latest Euro brand to take space below Houston is the always-colorful Spanish clothing company Custo Barcelona. According to Racked sources, the screen-printing-friendly retailer has plans to move in to 145 Spring Street at Wooster Street. That's only a block or so from their other store at 474 Broome Street, which has us wondering as to what, exactly, their plans are for the Spring storefront. Two Custo's within spitting distance from each other? Is the demand for really, really bright, overly-patterned tops and pants that high?
