Fun. Flamboyant. Happy-making. The Barcelona-based Desigual consistently delivers the goods and this season’s “Say something nice” collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on Thursday was no different, with fashion that set the tone for the Spring/Summer ’15 season.
Opening and closing the show with the sexy, smiling Adriana Lima, the designers (the house has collaborated with renowned international haute couturier Christian Lacroix since 2011) presented a love letter to their lady in a swath of bold, uncompromisingly wearable silhouettes — easy maxi and mini dresses, shorts and tees, jumpsuits, jackets and coats — embellished with sumptuous tropical floral prints, embroideries, crochets or lace, and in a kaleidoscopic burst of color. Like mini-explosions of happiness all over the place. Even black and white outfits were treated to a little tint of something. Floral headpieces, blossoming handbags and hot-hued strappy platform sandals only added to the hothouse flower ambience.
Thanks for the flowers, Desigual!
