I’m Going to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (!) : Desigual Overview

Hey Guys!!!

I’m so sorry for being MIA for so long – I had to get a huge amount of work done and I didn’t have any time to breath let alone blog! But now, I am back in the the swing of things and I have great news: I’ve been invited to cover Mercedes Benz and MADE Fashion Week! Today, I will be covering the Desigual fashion show. I was invited to the show, but unfortunately I was unable to make it on time due to the weather in NYC . However, I will be in New York tomorrow to attend some shows. Now, let’s get to the review!!!

Dots Galore

I’ve noticed that this season has been all about the prints – particularly polka dots! One of the defining characteristics of a Desigual fashion show is the light-hearted feel and bold aesthetic of all the clothing. I personally know that the use of polka dots can become very tacky, very quick. However, by incorporating the print into similar patterns, the outfits were made to be fun and funky instead of old and matronly. 

Mixed Prints

As I said previously, the Desigual show chose a very courageous route in mixing bold prints. I absolutely love breaking rules (I personally believe that there are no rules in fashion!) and feel that this was an ingenius strategy in creating beautiful clothing. I particularly love the third look down, which successfully mixes a rainbow floral print with a black-and-white polka dot print. I predict that bold, bright colors will become a huge trend for fall/winter this year.

Now, you may want to avert your eyes if you can’t handle too much perfection; not only does this photo present the incredible Candice Swanepoel, but it shows her in this incredible trench coat-inspired dress. I am in love with the use of angular designs on this coat, as it adds an edgy feel to the relatively bubbly show. I would have to name this coat my favorite piece of the entire collection!

Now, both of these gowns share a similar design inspired by swirling leaves and rose. I love the use of foiled gold and maxi length in the first gown, however, it is the second gowns deep red color on the model’s beautiful skin that truly entrances me. All in all, I was more than impressed by the Desigual collection. I was a little wary due to the knowledge that Desigual’s main strength is bright colors, a trend usually found in Spring. However, they were able to strategize in order to make Winter appropriate attire with these colors.
