Thanks to technology, commerce has gone global, and for fall the creative team behind Desigual presented a collection that mimicked a cultural collage with references from all around the world.
The Madrid-based label is known for its overpowering mix of prints and colors, but this lineup was much more subdued — and it worked. The design team still incorporated plenty of pattern, but in darker tones such as black, deep purple and burgundy, along with a healthy dose of indigo denim.
Key pieces included a floral velvet gown, a Renaissance brocade coat, patchwork skirts, a faux fur and embroidered denim vest, and an abstract striped knit maxidress. To drive home the multicultural message, many of the looks were topped off with rich embroidered turbans.
