Desigual, the unconventionally quirky, colorful brand from Barcelona, has long been one of my absolute favorites. I love their riot of colors, their unique take on combining world cultures, the signature mandala motif, and above all, the brand’s take on non-conformance. Desigual is anything but a fashion sheep. Straying away from mainstream trends, Desigual may have many a ‘me too’ wannabes, but nothing comes quite as close to the DNA of crazy-cool cuts and colors that is so ‘Desigual’.
Come 2017, and the brand announced the launch of the ‘New Desigual’, a range that would appeal to all, including those who shy away from color. I for one was dreading it. I LOVE the brand’s take on color clashes; you either love it or hate it. Surely they cannot have something for everyone? If you too are a die-hard fan of Desigual, fret not! The new collection is bigger and better than ever, and includes 6 sub-categories of looks.
The new collection has a whole new range of exceptionally stylish jackets. I fell in love with the Desigual Diven Blazer. With a formal blazer-style cut, this jacket can easily be taken from a casual day out right into the boardroom.
It features bold black and white stripes, making it an eye-catcher at first glance.
On one side, the jacket features a feminine floral print, and on the other you have a quirky-fun doodle. This juxtaposed design element beautifully represents the bold yet feminine women who love to dress up ‘Desigual’.
I also love the rolled up sleeve detailing. It features a splash of Desigual’s iconic colors that fit the theme of the brand’s logo.
This jacket is a statement piece in itself, and would work perfectly well with a monotone outfit. However, I am a Desigual fan through and through, and therefore decided to clash mine with more color.
My mandala-printed pants are also Desigual ofcourse! But these are from a couple of seasons back. They fit me like a glove, and like all things Desigual they have lasted through quite a number of washes with no defect.
Gotta love Desigual! If it is key statement pieces you are looking for in your wardrobe without the designer splurge, Desigual is worth the investment. Wait till I show you the other jacket I bought from the new collection as well!
