New Desigual bags at Angel: Spring-Summer 2018

Angel has more than a dozen new Desigual bags from the Spring-Summer 2018 collection, including this reversible shopper called Lola Pacth Capri. It’s a 3-in-1 bag with a smaller bag inside (with a cherries print). It also has a cherries keychain. $149.95.

Angel has lots of new bags from Desigual’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection. Some are tropical, some have red lips and others have embroidered hearts and bluebirds. Some are also reversible bags, with a second bag that fits inside. There are backpacks, shopper-style bags, messenger bags and everything in between. And the prices are  affordable. We believe the bags below, which arrived this week, are some of the best that Desigual has produced since it first started in Spain in 1984:

This weekend, the Canadian music awards (called the Junos) are being held in Vancouver. Angel supports Canadian music and musicians but sometimes I’m amazed that I’ve never heard of a Canadian group such as this one – I recently stumbled upon this band from Saskatchewan, The Dead South, and was surprised to learn that this two-year-old video has more than 50 million hits on YouTube:

There was a nice piece in the New York Times today about Canadian singer-songwriter k.d. lang, who played her first Vancouver concert at The Savoy, the now-defunct nightclub that was located above my store (now The Diamond) in Gastown. I was amazed to witness k.d that night (a video from those early days in here). She was the craziest country performer I’d ever seen, with her cut-off cowboy boots, glasses and her swearing that she was the reincarnation of Patsy Cline, who died the day k.d. was born. I later watched her sign her first record contract (aboard a paddlewheeler named The Beaver that was cruising Vancouver’s harbour). She now splits her time living in Calgary and Portland. Kathryn Dawn Lang’s doing a 25th anniversary tour of Constant Craving:

And finally, here’s my favourite video of former Vancouver drummer Charlie Quintana, who died suddenly this week in Cancun, Mexico. His Mexican punk band was chosen by Bob Dylan to make his first appearance in 1984 on the David Letterman show  – a killer version of Jokerman, where Dylan can’t find his harmonica in the right key and leaves the stage, telling the band to keep playing until he can locate it. Charlie flashes an amused smile at his bandmates when they realize they’ve been left alone on stage, playing Letterman. But better yet, ignore the bad video and sound, but enjoy the fact The Plugz got to do this Roy Head song, Treat Her Right, during the Letterman rehearsal:
