Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Review: Desigual

For Desigual’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, the theme was Mediterranean sunshine, and the happy attitude that the idyllic landscape inspires in its people and culture. Embodied in the brand’s motto of La Vida es Chula, or Life is Cool, the lust for living well, feeling free and dressing expressively was represented with lively colors in florals, tie-dye and stripes capturing the essence of the good life. It was a bright ray of sunshine in what had to be a truly deadly season of shows in New York.
