Barcelona, a photo a day


Hairy business

I am always very surprised by what people wear, or what they put on their heads. My wife tells me these are called extensions. After thinking about it for a (short) moment, I decided not to supplement my few short blond hair with any extensions. But that’s me, losing my flair for adventurous things.
What about you, which one would be yours, should you go for it?

A trendy spanish rickshaw

Friends in India and other rickshaw or tuktuk countries, here is what a trendy 3-wheeler looks like in Spain. You can see quite a lot of them, mostly around tourist attractions.
The logo, Desigual, is a Barcelona-based fashion house, very trendy, very hip.
Quoting Wikipedia:

The brand was founded in 1984 by Swiss national Thomas Meyer, founder and creative director that wanted to provide different clothes to people. Under the leadership of Manel Adell since 2002, the brand is driven by a global concern and maintains head offices in Barcelona. Desigual’s founding philosophy was based on positivism, tolerance, commitment, fun and un-levelling.

Desigual is a brand which has achieved sustained, sustainable, profitable growth in all sales channels throughout its history.

Each season the Desigual design team, comprising 25 designers, prepares a collection of over 1,000 items, counting clothes and accessories, built around one single concept, one common thread that makes the line whole resonate to the same philosophy. Real Life, Magic Stories, Luxury Feelings, Me&You, Better&Better, Wow, Life is Cool, All Together and Handmade are some of the leitmotifs that Desigual has brought to the fore.

The name Desigual means unequal, by the way.
