Desigual’s new video: La Vida es Chula by Adriana Lima for Fall-Winter 2014

Here is the latest Desigual video featuring brand ambassador Adriana Lima:And here’s the Italian version:The new video also features Canadian model Winnie Harlow, who has a rare skin condition called vitiligo (click here to read my earlier post about her). Previously, a Desigual ad featured two women kissing. This one has a kiss by two men. And a talking donkey, who says “La Vida es chula.” (Translation from Spanish: Life is Cool!) We have a number of the items featured in the new video, including the Janet dress worn by Adriana Lima and the shirt (see below) worn by one of the dancing men in the video.Desigual.Adriana-Lima-wearing.Janet.dress.FW2014 Candice-Swanepoel-at-Desigual-photocall Desigual.Folded.Seduccio.Carry.bag.FW2014$74.FW2014$150.FW2014$361.FW2014$325.FW2014 Desigual.woman.coat.FW2014 Desigual.Ibiza.Flower.Geometric.purse.FW2014 Desigual.SANDRA.dress.lookbook.FW2014 Desigual.Adriana.Lima.wearing.TIJAT.dress.Fall-Winter.2014
