I once was at a party where someone asked: “Have you been to Antarctica lately and seen what’s happening there?” Amazingly enough, three people replied they had visited the remotest of continents. For most of us, going to the South Pole is but a dream that will never come to fruition, mainly because of the cost – at least $10,000. The designers at Desigual are probably among this group. After all, temperatures in Antarctica can plunge to minus 89 degrees C in winter.
Still, we like the T-shirt, the related shirt and this men’s jacket, which has a stylish blue plaid vest that can be removed. For those seriously thinking about heading to the South Pole, the info about the 11 Wonders of the Antarctic is here.

Oh, and those little white dots floating down the screen? It’s snowing on my blog until Christmas.
