Perhaps it was Desigual’s imperative for AW14 that when La Vida Es Chula (when life is cool), love is always in the air. Maybe it was the colorful styles, with quirky, contemporary prints and patterns, that were totally wearable. It could’ve been the Gaudi-esque energy that exuded from the collection. Whatever it was, I always seem to fall in love with the clothes from this Barcelona-based house.
Alex Wek dancing down the catwalk at Desigual pretty much summed up the season. Fun and filled with mixes of happy patterns, beginning with the black and white that kicked off the show, ending with a riot of color and metallics, the collection moved in step to the beat of a Barcelona heart. Loved watching Alex prance down the runway, then, at end of show, offer up a big gold heart of gratitude from the designers.
