Desigual F/W 2014 – La Vida Es Chula
The Spanish sun warmed frost bitten fingers and alleviated runny noses on the steps of Lincoln Center as the debut of the F/W 2014 Desigual show penetrated the air this week. Their fall/winter collection promised an outspoken and playful party of silhouettes and drapes, dedicated to a story engulfed in sequin, furry angora-wool blends, and jacquard everything! This season, the Spanish brand kept things light and bright as opposed to the darker hues, colorless palettes, and hard exteriors that we’ve been seeing on every other catwalk. Sighs and stolen breaths sounded especially when pieces like the silk maxi-dress with artisan embroidered, gold sequins in baroque motifs and a bomber jacket done spectacularly in tones of scarlet and burgundy, playing up the textured, brushed alpaca fur and lamé, floral, jacquard, reglan sleeves. Celebrities like Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules and Adrienne Bailon sat front and center, witnessing as Victoria’s Secret’s very own angel, Candice Swanepoel, led the brigade of flirty models down the runway in their anti-fall, sky-high minis.
