Our 42nd Anniversary Sale: 42% off the Desigual Winter 2019 collection

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:

Vancouver rocker Bryan Adams, whose Warehouse recording studio is a block east of our store, released a new Christmas video earlier this month:

Here’s Bob Dylan‘s version of the same song, a polka with something rarely seen – Bob dancing at a raucous house party. Bob inserts the names of 10 U.S. presidents while naming off Santa’s reindeer (originally there were eight reindeer in the 1823 poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, more commonly known as The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore, an American Professor of Oriental and Greek Literature in New York City who made a fortune subdividing an inherited estate in the district that now is known as Chelsea). Rudolph the red-nosed ninth reindeer was a 20th century invention, spawned by the 1949 song by the singing cowboy Gene Autry.

This is a new Christmas song, released this week by Los Lobos, who recently did a Tiny Desk Concert, performing songs from their first Christmas album, Llegó Navidad. I first saw Los Lobos in the early 1980s at the Savoy nightclub above my Gastown store (now called The Diamond). This is Ellie Goulding singing a live version on BBC earlier this month of the Joni Mitchell classic River:

Joni wrote the song in 1970 while living in a cave in Matala, Greece; it’s about her break-up with Graham Nash.

This a new song by Robbie Robertson. Remembrance plays during the final credits for The Irishman, the new Netflix picture by Martin Scorsese, who recently made a fabulous doc about Robertson, detailing the years as Bob Dylan‘s band and with Ronnie Hawkins, until they quit touring with Dylan and set up a studio in the basement of a pink house in Woodstock, New York, which begat Music From Big Pink. Here’s another of Robbie’s songs, the theme for The Irishman – the three-hour-plus movie features Sopranos actor and Bruce Springsteen bandmate Little Steven Van Zandt singing Spanish Harlem in an Italian nightclub.

And here is Fiona Apple singing The Waterboys 1985 hit The Whole Moon, which plays during the final scene of the finale of the fifth season of the TV series The Affair:
