If the people at the Christian Lacroix Desigual studio are the artists, then the Fall 2015 Collection is the canvas. The collection was peppered with influences from abstract paintings, stunning upholstery, photographs of Africa, a nod to the historic Renaissance era in Northern Europe, and a landscape filled with an abundance of flowers. We see African-inspired black and white prints, multi-colored embroideries from the world over, oriental carpet motifs, and Baroque tapestries woven into evocative abstraction, all of which continues to celebrate the brand’s message of “La Vida es Chula!” (Life is Cool!)
You can no doubt see the festive mood of the collection just from the photos. With models dancing down the runways adorned with explosions of medieval gemstones, modern artwork, exotic flower bouquets, all presented on printed tulles, jacquards, embossed hair, and duchess satin. We especially love the giant pompoms and wild free-flowing hair, which perfectly suited the collection.
We love the celebration of the unique, being atypical, and self-expression that Desigual stands for. The show, of course had no shortage of celebrities. Brand Ambassador, Adriana Lima, along with Katie Holmes, held court in front row, while Rapper Drake went more incognito and opted for a seat in the back as to not distract from the show.
As usual, the show ended with the designers thanking everyone in a adorable way
