Desigual at New York Fashion Week
Magnificent exhibition of talent by Custo Barcelona and Desigual at New York Fashion Week. The Catalan firms have presented their autumn-winter 2014/15 collections in one of the most internationally influent and relevant showcases. Most of the new outfits shown had been already previewed during past January's 080 Barcelona Fashion edition.


Last thursday was Desigual's turn to present exclusively Candice Swanepoel, one of the most well-known faces of the international fashion shows, who has been featured on the cover of the most prestigious fashion magazines worldwide. The South African top model showcased some of the new collection 'Love in the City' looks, and shared the philosophy, magic and optimism of this colouristic brand with other international supermodels such as Irina Shayk, Adriana Lima and Bar Rafaeli, stars of past editions of the 080 Barcelona Fashion respectively.  

The spirit of the new collection 'Love in the City' stays true to Desigual's characteristic use of colour and naive touch. However, the designings, made once more by Christian Lacroix, become darker (brown and terracotta hues are included). It shows baroque elements: brocades and flowery patterns (in gold, silver and bronze) on embellished pieces of Venetian inspiration. Lamé trousers, kinetic-style dresses and turtlenecks are Lacroix's contributions to the Catalan brand.
