Christian Lacroix Loves Desigual

The latest high fashion / high street design collaboration has been signed off between the   Spanish brand Desigual and Mr Christian Lacroix. Not one that I would have expected but we're interested because we miss Lacroix's bold colour and showy embellishment. It's good to see he hasn't stopped working his high fashion fingers. 

The project kick starts with a 30 piece collection for AW 2011/12. I detect the major influence of the designer's handwriting but it does seem to combine both teams eclectic sensibilityDesigual is a relatively new to the UK high street and I'm not sure how well its "fresh, authentic and rebellious" design ethos has been received here. However with Lacroix on board, fingers crossed, this could be a collaboration that will be a successful prelude of things to come for the next instalment in Summer 2012.
