Desigual Ladies Wear is one of my favourite designer brands 

desigual dress and coatQuite often I have been inspired to buy something that little bit different when on holiday to places like the South of Spain and the Canary Islands. Don’t know if its because the sun has gone to my head but thats just the way I’ve retail therapy rolled on holiday in warm climates.

One of my first purchases of this kind was a Pandora bracelet when I was on vacation at Puerto de Santiago in Tenerife. This purchase was long before this brand of ladies jewellery became popular in the UK. I now own several items of Pandora jewellery and can proudly say I was probably the first, if not one of the first, to own a Pandora bracelet in Aberdeen, Scotland.

I adopted the same approach to a brand called, Desigual. This is a ladies clothing brand headquartered in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, which is HUGE in Spain but very little known in the UK. Desigual clothing is notable for its trendy patchwork designs, intense prints, graffiti art, asymmetrical designs (hence the name) and flamboyant splashes of colour. The Desigual fashion designer brand is key catching and unique.

Desigual claims to have a philosophy based on positivity, tolerance, commitment and fun. Some of the concepts used by the company are Real Life, Magic Stories, Luxury Feelings, Me&You, Better&Better, Wow, Life is Cool, All Together and Handmade.

Desigual shops are located in Andorra, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Curaçao,the Czech Republic, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Saint Martin, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Taiwan, Trinidad, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela.

They employ over 3,000 people in 72 nationalities and are growing at a huge rate. It achieved a 60% anual growth from 2002 to 2009, and a turnover of €250 million in 2009, €440 million in 2010 and €560 million in 2011.

Desigual cothing and accessories tend to attract attention because of their exuberance, confidence, and stylishness; and this is currently my favourite designer label, simply because its that little bit different and colourful.

Desigual sells men’s, women’s, children’s clothing, accessories and women’s shoes. The Desigual Collections include gifts, home decor, handbags, shoes, jackets, coats, footwear, dresses, bathrobes, t-shirts, polo shirts, blouses, scarves, wallets, jumpers, jeans, tops, skirts, sportswear, kidswear &c.
