I became the owner of a Desigual coat about a year ago and it’s one of those pieces of clothing that every time I look at it makes me smile – it’s a black and white print with a shocking pink lining and different coloured jewelled buttons. What’s not to love? So the fact that Christian Lacroix has forged a partnership with this joyously colourful Spanish clothing company is great news.
Monsieur Lacroix, famous for his use and mix of colour and texture, will be designing a 30 piece collection for Desigual due to launch in Autumn/Winter this year. It should be an exciting collaboration. In the meantime the Spring 2011 Desigual collection offers coats, dresses, bags and separates, always with a colourful overtone, whether it’s a poppy print on a black background or a black and white print fusing into blue flowers. Most are ‘collectors pieces’ you’ll want to hang on to for ever, like my coat.
