Desigual for Burning Man this weekend

There’s no turning back now. The Man will burn this weekend. Tens of thousands of people gather each year at Black Rock City, a city in the flat Nevada desert that will disappear after this long weekend. Until next year. It’s a place where art meets survival camp conditions and dazzles Burners, as Burning Man attendees refer to themselves.

A number of people visited Angel in recent weeks to buy Desigual pieces they were planning to wear at Burning Man. We don’t have any photos of those people. Instead, here are a few pics of this year’s Man to be Burned (he’s in a handcrafted-wood pagoda) and some of the desert work styles of the folks who help make Burning Man happen:

Desigual is characterized by its different, optimistic and colorful designs. The company began operating in 1984. La Vida es Chula (Life is Cool) is Desigual’s slogan and way of looking at fashion and life. It’s an enthusiastic, positive and optimistic message that nails its colors to the mast.

Angel is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. carrall&powell.1886We’re  on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, where Vancouver began.
