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:

Today’s video is a live version of Wichita Lineman by Glen Campbell, a great guitarist and studio musician who became a country-pop superstar; Campbell died this week at the age of 81:

My favourite version of the song is this slightly off-key performance on New Year’s Eve five years ago, by Michael Stipe (formerly the lead singer of REM) and Patti Smith:

Patti Smith wrote a lovely piece this week about the passing of her “buddy” — actor/playwright Sam Shepard — in The New Yorker. Music nowadays seems to be dominated by DJs such as Calvin Harris, now a Scottish record music producer whose new song, Feels, features a superstar trio: Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean

And I like this video for Where R Ü Now by DJs Diplo, Skrillex & Canada’s Justin Bieber. I wish my visits to the supermarket were like this:

Click here to watch The New York Times video of Bieber, Diplo and Skrillex explaining how the song was made, using animation to explain the song’s beats and unique computer-generated sounds.

The Endless Summer 2017 Sale

After six weeks of sunshine, it might seem like we’re having an endless summer (despite our first rain late last week, it’s back to sunshine again all this week). And in the fashion retail business, we’re getting ready to transition into the Fall-Winter 2017 season by August, so we’re having a (seemingly) Endless Summer Sale — our biggest of the year — to make room for the new Fall collection from Barcelona-based Desigual.

Angel is offering 30% to 50% off the remainder of our entire Summer 2017 collection from Desigual, albeit with limited sizes in some styles.

Here are few of the Desigual styles we have on sale for men, women & kids, including the CIRCINI jacket, which is a mix of orange and pink, much like the iconic 1964 poster for the film The Endless Summer featured at the top of this post (the poster was designed by John Van Hamersveld, one of my classmates at Chouinard art school in Los Angeles in the mid 1960s). Also on sale is another great Desigual jacket from this summer called FLORENCIA, which is pink with embroidery front and back (photo below). The entire Summer 2017 collection is on sale at 30% off.

Desigual CIRCINI jacket features orange and pink and has embroidery front and back. It’s now on sale @ 30% off.

Today’s video is the spicy hit of the summer — Despacito by Luis Fonsi of Puerto Rico, featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee. The song, released earlier this year, has been viewed more than 2.8 billion times on YouTube and streamed a total of 4.6 billion times, making it the most streamed song of all time. And the recent remix with Canadian Justin Bieber — viewed almost 500 million times — has helped get the song played on radio stations across Canada and the U.S. The Colombian producers of the song, Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo, breakdown the mechanics and dynamics in a video here.

The woman featured in the video is Zuleyka Rivera, 29, a former Puerto Rico beauty queen chosen Miss Universe in 2006. She started as a model at 14 and currently guest hosts two TV programs while based in Miami: Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Dia and Univision’s Despierta America. A single mother raising a five-year-old son, Sebastián, she has her own clothing line and three fragrance lines. Wow, she sounds like the next Desigual brand ambassador.

This is Love by Lana Del Rey. She doesn’t get much airplay (despite 73 million hits on Love on YouTube), but this video fits perfectly with the song, a minor masterpiece:

Here, Lana Del Ray dances on top of the Hollywood sign with Canadian singer The Weeknd. The song hasn’t won me over, but I love the video. The Weeknd sings: “Take off all your clothes,” before Lana slides off the D at the end of the Hollywood sign. Is it a happy  ending? Hey, it’s Hollywood.

Does Lana share bandwidth with David Lynch? We’re not sure, yet:

Wow. We’ve had two steady weeks of sunshine, with more expected this week and next. We like that. We also like the fact that Bono and the Edge of U2 were the surprise opening act on Canada Day last Saturday in Ottawa. They performed One:

We also like the new Bruno Mars hit, That’s What I Like, which he’ll be performing in Vancouver later this month, on July 26:

Last weekend, Robin Leveille caught a surprise visit of orcas to Whytecliff Park  in West Vancouver. His buddy posted this video, which we like:

Since this is a Father’s Day post, here is a song from 1985 performed live by Mike + The Mechanics, which always makes me think of my departed father:

The song was written by Mike Rutherford, formerly of Genesis, and the lyrics were written by Scottish singer-songwriter  B. A. Robertson. Both had lost their fathers shortly before writing the song, which urges everyone to tell their fathers how much they mean to you before they’re dead. The singer is Paul Carrack, one of the best singers on the planet, who was only 11 when he lost his father in a workplace accident in Sheffield, England. Carrack wrote this 1974 song, How Long (Has This Been Goin’ On), when he was in a British band called Ace; it’s performed here with Eric Clapton & friends:

In 1981, Carrack sang this near-perfect song, Tempted, with the Brit band Squeeze on their album East Side Story, produced by Elvis Costello:
