Some of the best Desigual designs this season were done in collaboration with French fashion designer Christian Lacroix. They are a heavenly mix of fabric, colour, pattern and design.
Desigual, the Barcelona-based fashion house, can’t use Lacroix’s name but refers to the styles he helped design by adding the tag “L” and attaching a stylized image of his face.
Here’s what Lacroix had to say when he first saw a woman wearing Desigual: “I was awestruck by the first girl dressed by Desigual that I saw in Paris. As I watched her, I could recognize in her a member of my own tribe. It was an explosion of colours and patchwork under the elegant, discreet and always monotonous French sky. It was fantastic, truly love at first sight, a breath of fresh air, all multicoloured, scorching, revitalizing, radiating Mediterranean colours and flavours and creeping into this global and colourless magma inhabited by zombies and clones.”
The photos below are a sampling of the designs by Mr. L for Desigual that are available at Angel Vancouver, which is located at No. 2 Powell in the historic Gastown district of Vancouver B.C. Canada. Call (604) 681-0947 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
