Desigual is known for looks on the runway that feature flares and splashes of color, hypnotizing prints, and asymmetrical designs. In its latest collection for the runway, we see that vision still holding up, but it had clear influences from the British punk rock street style of the 70s and 80s, and the Bohemian styles and cuts of the Carnaby Street 60s.

The Art of Blending

What made this collection most unique and exquisite was the integration of both elements in these looks.

Mini Dress

The shockingly short dresses that pushed the boundaries of fashion in the 60s and the fishnet and solid stocking combination that could be found the female resistance of fascism in the punk scene of the 80s is made into a Desigual masterpiece as Bohemian floral embroidery are featured in the this runway look.

Animal Print

A  cheetah print pencil skirt set with the waistline of the fishnets the model was wearing is just another way the seamless combination of these two incredibly political and liberating scenes were presented on the runway.

The use of plaid is what was most reminiscent of the punk scene of the 80s. The print was presented on jackets, trench-length coats, and pants.
