This is a question that honestly sounds like a jokey riddle: what do you get when you cross a fabled French couture designer with a Spanish street brand that famously encouraged NYers to strip down to their skivvies in public, just for the chance to win two paltry articles of clothing? The answer: the very colorful Christian Lacroix for Desigual collection that will launch in the US this fall. This is one of those collections that retains key characteristics of each collaborator (at least, from what we see in the pictures). No word on prices yet, though Desigual coats retail for around three bills and dresses are generally in the $100 - $200 range.
