Desigual Spring 2015 Collection Show

The Desigual Spring 2015 Collection show is why we love previewing spring/summer collections. The colors, prints and atmosphere are vibrant, happy and exuberant. Since banding together to create the “Desigual by L” capsule collection in 2011, Desigual and Christian LaCroix has continually presented women everywhere with what they refer to as a “happy casual” collection and judging my what we saw coming down the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, they are indeed holding true to their word. The Spring 2015 collection, titled, “Say something Nice” (some models walked down the runway with speech bubbles with cute notes), is inspired by the flora and fauna. Bursting with colorful, multi-cultural bouquets of daisies, desert roses, tropical hibiscus, and Mexican dahlias, one find themselves hoping for spring.

Along with the exotic flora, the collection’s inspirations also included classic English blooms with the Iberian Peninsula’s landscape (no doubt inspired by it’s odd octagonal shape, it’s diverse fauna, and presence of its formidable mountainous Atlantic and Mediterranean terrain), the combination of cool Mediterranean spirit with South American motifs, and the natural beauty of the western countryside influenced by sweeping European geometry.

The color palate included rich, vibrant tones that dominated the collection, with of bursts of poppy red, saffron, and teal, that were all set against the backdrop of jade, white, and onyx bringing to life a vision of The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, and the underwater flora of the lost City of Atlantis.

Celebrity sightings included Sin City 2 star Rosario Dawson, supermodel Poppy Delevingne, socialite Olivia Palermo, Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte, Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether, Vanderpump Rules’ Pandora Vanderpump, French Model Camille Rowe and Orange is the New Black’s Laura Gomez but the most present went to Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima who opened and closed the show.

I've surpassed my 10,000 steps every day so far and after fashion week is over, it's spin class time

I can only imagine how many steps you're going to get in next week! And what a fun way to get those in! Our family spends a lot of time outdoors so I'm sure we could be racking up those steps and rewards too! #client
