We’ve just received the second half of our Fall-Winter 2014 order from Desigual, including a number of new overcoats, with three creations by Paris fashion designer Christian Lacroix. Some coats are longer and warmer, better suited for the coming winter, while others are shorter and lighter — perfect for warding off the fall chill in the air. We also have a number of new Desigual scarves, purses and boots (see photos below — put your cursor over photos for prices). In the days ahead, we’ll show you new arrivals for men and kids from Desigual’s autumn collection. This week, we have a number of Desigual pants & dresses on sale for 15% off the regular prices. We’re also offering 35% off select Desigual pieces and 20% off all Desigual children’s wear.
We’re open Monday Oct. 13 from noon to 6.
Desigual is designed in Barcelona and produces 1,000 new pieces every season. The company was founded in 1984 when owner Thomas Meyer started painting T-shirts on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

He wondered if they communicated with each other that there was a diver with a knife nearby who could cut them loose from tangled fishing lines.
