Desigual HOUSTON long knitted cardigan. Was $335.95, now 42% off during Angel’s 42nd Anniversary Sale

To celebrate our 42nd anniversary, Angel is offering 42% off the entire Desigual Fall-Winter 2019 collection, excluding accessories. Some pieces are marked down 50%.

Our Angel Anniversary sale runs until closing time on Sunday Feb. 16, 2020. So here’s a chance to save big on the latest Desigual styles – we have lots of winter coats & sweaters still in stock.

The Desigual Spring-Summer 2020 collection is already on its way to Angel and is expected to arrive soon, so stay tuned.

I started selling handpainted T-shirts in 1973 after graduating from the Chouinard Institute of Art in Los Angeles, which later became CalArts. Some Angel creations were sold at Bloomingdales in New York. I also taught high school art for four years. The other art teacher and I quit the same day. We loved the students but we decided we couldn’t take teaching any more. Teaching is tough job and it adversely affected my health.

I took a part-time job serving beer at Jerry’s Cove pub (now called The Cove) and sold my handpainted shirts at the small store next door, which was run by the pub owner’s wife. One day, the pub owner asked me if I wanted to take over the store next door – he told me had an hour to decide. The rent was $200 a month.

I went for it and opened Angel Handpainted Fashions in 1978. A few years later, Angel moved to Broadway and then in the early 1980s we opened on Robson Street.

As the rents on Robson skyrocketed, I decided to move Angel to Gastown in 1998, to our current location on the southeast corner of Carrall and Powell in Maple Tree Square.

I’m still painting shirts, mostly custom orders today. Almost 10 years ago, I began selling the Barcelona-based Desigual clothing line, which had similar origins as Angel: Thomas Meyer, the owner of Desigual, started painting T-shirts on the island of Ibiza in Spain and founded the company in 1984 in Barcelona. Desigual now has stores around the world.

Angel is the only Desigual Wow Shop boutique in Vancouver, with the latest styles for men, women & kids.

The New York Times has done a series of videos called Diary of A Song featuring artists ranging from Lizzo to Billie Eilish where the artist explains how they wrote a song. The latest is Taylor Swift recounting how she wrote her new hit, Lover:

Lover is the second song in Swift’s recent NPR Tiny Desk live acoustic concert. I like her first song, The Man, where she imagines what every woman thinks – how would I be treated if I were a man?

Since this is Black History month, here’s Lizzo explaining to the NYT how she made Juice:
