Desigual for special occasions: A wedding and a 90th birthday

Megan & Shyah’s wedding at Third Beach in Vancouver

Most of the time, we sell a customer a piece of Desigual clothing and don’t know where it ends up. But sometimes customers send us photos, showing us how it was looks on them, sometimes for a very special occasion.

Like the photo above, which shows a recent wedding on Vancouver’s Third Beach, with the groom wearing a Desigual shirt he bought at Angel for his nuptials.

Another customer bought two Desigual shirts for her husband’s birthday — Ron is 90, still working and works out at the gym three times a week. He looks fabulous in his new shirts (below): ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

This was a recent custom order — I handpainted a woman’s horse on a Desigual jean jacket. She loved it.

Angel loves songs called Angel. This one is from 2000 from Jamaican-American reggae singer Shaggy:

The tune samples the bass line from the 1973 song The Joker by Steve Miller and the  melody is from Angel of the Morning, written by American Chip Taylor, the brother of actor Jon Voigt and the uncle of actress Angelina Jolie. It was originally recorded in 1967 by singer Evie Sands but became a hit the following year when released by Seattle singer Merrilee Rush & the Turnabouts. This 1995 version is my fave, by Chrissie Hynde & the Pretenders:

The song was also a hit in 1981 by country-rock star Juice Newton. The songwriter was perhaps best known for writing Wild Thing, first recorded in 1965 by Jordan Christopher & The Wild Ones; it became a hit in 1966 when recorded by  The Troggs and became legendary for a 1967 live performance at the Monterey Pop Festival by Jimi Hendrix. This is reggae singer Sister Carol‘s version of Wild Thing for the final scene/closing credits of the Jonathan Demme movie Something Wild:

A week after posting this, Jonathan Demme died at the age of 73.
